‘Then’ Derek Chisora vs. Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury will defend his world heavyweight title against Derek Chisora in an all-British trilogy battle on December 3 in London.

The showdown against Chisora, whom Fury defeated in 2011 and 2014, will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and will be the “Gypsy King’s” first fight since his April sixth-round finish of another local opponent, Dillian Whyte.

The unbeaten Fury, whose WBC championship will be at stake, tweeted: “Then let’s have it, Del Boy!!! London, see you on December 3rd! “.

Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, was “thrilled” to be staging a Fury championship defense in front of British fans.

“Tyson has definitely captivated America during the course of his trilogy with Deontay Wilder, and there is a worldwide demand for his matches,” he stated.

“After his memorable night at Wembley Stadium in April, Tyson desired to fight in his home country again this year. This brings us to the wonderful Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a fight against Derek Chisora, an old adversary.”

Warren reaffirmed Fury’s intention to face Joshua’s conqueror Oleksandr Usyk in an early 2019 unification bout.

The Ukrainian had previously stated that he had no wish to compete before to 2023.

“Tyson can’t afford to lose this fight because he has a highly anticipated undisputed bout with Usyk in the new year,” Warren added.

Fury has defeated his British opponent twice before, by unanimous decision at Wembley in July 2011 and by retirement at London’s ExCel three years later.

The action follows the breakdown of negotiations for a potential showdown between Fury and former British heavyweight world champion Joshua earlier this month.

Chisora, 38, has not fought since July, when he defeated Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena by split decision.
