Tyson Fury to rematch Derek Chisora for The 3rd Time
After the breakdown of talks for a potential confrontation with Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury will defend his world heavyweight championship on December 3 against Derek Chisora in London in an all-British trilogy fight. Chisora will be Tyson Fury’s third opponent in the trilogy.
The fight against Chisora, who Tyson Fury defeated in 2011 and 2014, will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This will be the “Gypsy King’s” first fight since his routine sixth-round knockout of another local foe, Dillian Whyte, in April. Chisora will be Fury’s third opponent in this fight.
Tyson Fury, who has never been defeated and will be defending his WBC title, said in a tweet, “Let’s have it then, Del Boy!!! “I’ll see you on the 3rd of December, London!”
Frank Warren, who is in charge of promoting Fury’s fights, stated that he was “thrilled” to be able to stage a championship defense for Tyson Fury in front of British fans.
“Tyson obviously won America during his trilogy with Deontay Wilder, and there is also a great desire to host his fights from venues across the world,” he stated. “Tyson has become the undisputed king of boxing in the United States.”
“After his unforgettable night at Wembley Stadium in April, Tyson expressed a desire to compete in his own nation once more this year. This leads us to the wonderful Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where we will be facing an old adversary in the form of Derek Chisora.
The idea for Fury to meet Joshua’s conqueror Oleksandr Usyk in a unification bout at the beginning of the next year was reaffirmed by Warren.
The Ukrainian had stated in the past that he had no wish to compete before to the year 2023.
“Tyson can’t afford to make any mistakes in this fight because he has the highly-anticipated undisputed bout with Usyk in the new year,” Warren said. “We’re definitely looking forward to that.”
Tyson Fury has defeated his British adversary on two previous occasions
The first time by a unanimous decision at Wembley in July 2011, and the second time via a retirement win in London’s ExCel three years later.
The move comes after negotiations between Fury and Joshua, a British former world heavyweight champion, earlier this month broke down, leading to the potential fight between the two fighters being scrapped.
Chisora, who is now 38 years old, won his most recent bout in July against Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena through a split decision.
