Ranking the Best Opponents for Tyson Fury After Dereck Chisora's Injury
JON SUPER/Associated Press

As reported yesterday by the BBC and Sky Sports, heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora was forced to pull out of his fight scheduled for this weekend with fellow Brit Tyson Fury. The bout was supposed to be an elimination fight for a show against Wladimir Klitschko. 

It's been a tough year for Fury when it comes to missed opportunities. A twice-delayed fight with former champion David Haye never materialized at the end of last year or start of this one, and he instead faced lightly regarded journeyman Joey Abell last February.

His last meaningful fight was over a year ago, when he stopped former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham in April 2013.

I've never been sold on Fury as a future world champion. But he's a top 10 in the division and a potentially exciting performer, so it's unfortunate to see him sidelined for so long just as the weight class has been heating up overall. 

These 10 fights would offer the gigantic Fury worthy opponents and a chance to keep advancing his career.
