Tyson Fury will return to the ring next month as he defends his WBC heavyweight title against old rival Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Following his incredible trilogy with Deontay Wilder, Fury retained his world crown by destroying Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.

The talk of elite boxing has since been dominated by the Gypsy King’s claims of retiring and then calling out Anthony Joshua. Fury vs Joshua was the fight all fans wanted to see but, despite lengthy negotiations and contracts sent, it never got finalised. Fury has since moved on and will now meet Chisora for a third time in early December.

The British rivals first met in July 2011 as Fury claimed a decision win before he then forced Chisora to stop in their rematch in November 2014. Now, several years on, they will also complete their trilogy after Del Boy claimed a fine win over Kubrat Pulev this summer despite nearing the age of 40.

Fury vs Chisora: What has been said?

Fury’s UK co-promoter Frank Warren: “I am thrilled to be delivering a Tyson Fury world title defence in front of the British fans in London. “Tyson clearly conquered America across his trilogy with Deontay Wilder and there is also huge demand to stage his fights from sites across the world. “Tyson wanted to fight in his home country again this year following his special night at Wembley Stadium in April. “This brings us to the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a match against an old rival in Derek Chisora.

“Derek, also a big favourite with British fans, has reinvented himself in recent years and Tyson has long stated his wish to fight him for a third time. “Tyson can’t afford any slip-up in this fight as he has the much-publicised undisputed match-up with Oleksandr Usyk in the New Year which we’re really looking forward to.

Fury’s US co-promoter Bob Arum added: “Whenever Tyson Fury fights, it is a major event, and I expect him to once again put on a spectacular show for the fans.

“There are talks about what’s next for Tyson, but the first order of business is a battle against an extraordinarily tough fighter in Derek Chisora.”
