Tyson Fury believes that Wladimir Klitschko will avoid fighting him if he beats Dereck Chisora in July.

Tyson Fury has insisted that Wladimir Klitschko has no intention of meeting him in a world title fight in the near future.

It was confirmed on Monday that Fury will face Dereck Chisora in a WBO heavyweight title eliminator on July 26, with the winner earning the right to contest for Klitschko's belt, but Fury believes that he is likely to be asked to fight for a vacant title.

"Wlad has done all he can to stay out of my way and he will do so again when I beat Chisora. The simple truth is that he doesn't want to fight me," Fury told The Sun.

"If that's the case it means I will be fighting for the vacant title at the end of this year when I expect to be crowned world champion."

Fury has won all 22 of his professional bouts.
