Tyson Fury’s announced he’ll defend his WBC heavyweight world boxing title against Derek Chisora on the 3rd of December.
The third meeting between the two British fighters will be held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Fury won the previous two bouts back in 2011 and 2014 respectively. With Chisora’s corner not allowing the fight to continue in 2014.
Considering Chisora has lost three of his last four fights, the bout seems strange. Especially considering what was potentially on the cards.
There had been hopes Fury would take on former champion Anthony Joshua in December – but talks broke down. There was also tentative plans to take on Anthony Joshua’s conqueror Usyk in a unification fight, however, those seem to be put on hold..
This comes off the back of undefeated Fury’s announced retirement following the completion of the trilogy of bouts he has with Deontay Wilder.
