Tyson Fury confirms Dec. 3 Derek Chisora trilogy bout at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tyson Fury has confirmed he will take on Derek Chisora in their trilogy fight on Dec. 3 at Londons Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for Furys WBC heavyweight title.

On Thursday, Fury tweetedconfirmation of the bout, which will be streamed on ESPN+, as the two heavyweights face each other for the first time since 2014.

LETS HAVE IT THEN DEL BOY!!!! SEE YOU DECEMBER 3RD LONDON!

Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs), the WBC heavyweight champion, said he was retired following a sixth-round TKO victory over Dillian Whyte in April, but reversed course in August with claims he would fight Chisora, a heavyweight gatekeeper, a third time.

The Gypsy King then insisted in September he was in serious talks for a Dec. 3 bout with former champion Anthony Joshua that would represent one of the biggest events in all of boxing. However, discussions between Furys promoter, Frank Warren, and Joshuas promoter, Eddie Hearn, broke off Sept. 29, according to a source.

Joshua accepted 40% to Furys 60%, but the champion claimed that a self-imposed deadline had passed. In reality, a source said, Fury and Chisora were deep in negotiations as a deal for their fight neared the finish line.

Ive decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight world champion in history to have two trilogies, Fury, ESPNs No. 1 heavyweight and No. 6 pound-for-pound boxer, said in August. Id always say Id fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career.

After Oleksandr Usyk defeated Joshua a second time in August to retain his three heavyweight titles, it appeared they would meet next for the undisputed championship. Fury, though, expressed that he needed to fight one more time in 2022, while Usyk said he wouldnt be ready until next year as he recovers from injuries.

A stay-busy fight for Fury makes sense ahead of a probable clash with Usyk, and Chisora fits the bill. The 38-year-old ended a three-fight losing streak with a split decision victory over Kubrat Pulev in July and owns a recognizable name in the U.K. Still, its rare for two boxers to fight a third time when the first two bouts werent remotely competitive.

Fury outpointed Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) in 2011 and stopped him in Round 10 of their 2014 rematch.

A matchup with Chisora is also a major letdown after the Joshua bout was teased for weeks as negotiations played out through the media. But it should be a prelude to a Fury-Usyk showdown next year.
