MANCHESTER, England (AP) - British boxer Tyson Fury lived up to his name by tipping over a table and shouting expletives before storming out of a news conference ahead to his world heavyweight title eliminator against Dereck Chisora.

Fury was sitting alongside Chisora at a media event in Manchester on Thursday when he exploded in rage, saying ''listen, I'm Tyson Fury, I'm the best heavyweight on the planet, this idiot is getting knocked spark out and I'm sick to death of this.''

He slammed down the microphone, flipped up the table that had glasses on it and left the room.

Chisora applauded Fury sarcastically before saying ''shall we give him a Golden Globe or not?''

The pair will meet in an all-British fight on July 26 for the right to challenge Wladimir Klitschko for his IBF, WBA and WBO belts.
