Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora ​​trilogy fight confirmed

Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora ​​will face off in a heavyweight duel on December 3rd. The fight takes place at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and marks the third meeting between the two, with Fury overtaking Chisora ​​in 2011 and defeating him via technical knockout in 2014.

Fury’s WBC heavyweight title is at stake in the fight as the 34-year-old steps back into the ring for the first time since his successful save against Dillian Whyte in April – when he KO’d his compatriot at Wembley Stadium.

Meanwhile, Chisora ​​last fought in July, beating Kubrat Pulev via split decision at the O2 Arena, six years after the Bulgarian defeated the 38-year-old by the same means.

It had been expected that Fury would next face off against WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO champion Oleksandr Usyk to crown an undisputed champion. However, the undefeated Ukrainian is said not to be fit in time for Fury’s desired December date and so the Brit turned his attention to Anthony Joshua.

Joshua suffered a second straight decision loss to Usyk in August and was unable to regain the belts he lost to the southpaws last September, but Fury still offered the 32-year-old a shot at the WBC title.

However, negotiations are falling apart and Fury’s team resumed talks with Chisora ​​after the two sides started talks ahead of the Joshua episode – as reported by The Independent.

Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, said: “Tyson has clearly taken over America in his trilogy with Deontay Wilder and there’s also a lot of demand to stage his fights from locations around the world. [but] Tyson was keen to return to his home country to fight after his special night at Wembley Stadium in April this year.

“This brings us to the great Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a game against an old rival in Derek Chisora.

“Derek, also a huge favorite with British fans, has reinvented himself in recent years and Tyson has long expressed his desire to fight him a third time.

“Tyson can’t afford to slip up in this fight as he has that highly acclaimed, undisputed duel with Usyk in the new year – which we’re really looking forward to.”
