Tyson Fury defends his WBC heavyweight title against old rival Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3rd.
The ‘Gypsy King’ and ‘Delboy’ have met on two occasions in the past. Firstly, the pair contested Chisora’s British title back in 2011 at Wembley Arena where Fury picked up a wide unanimous decision to dethrone Chisora.
The pair would run it back three years later, now with the European title thrown into the mix. Fury would be the victor once again, but this time Chisora was pulled out of the fight after round ten by trainer Don Charles as Fury had stepped up the levels.
Nine years on the pair meet again. The ‘Gypsy King’ is coming off the back of a successful defence of his WBC title over Dillian Whyte back in April at Wembley Stadium, knocking the Brixton man out within six rounds. Chisora also comes into this bout off of a victory, as he avenged a loss to former foe Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena in July.
The WBC champion had been linked with a bout with former unified champion Anthony Joshua for this date, but talks went cold. Fury and Chisora now battle it out for the third time as they meet at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3rd, with Daniel Dubois defending his WBA ‘Regular’ heavyweight title against Kevin Lerena on the undercard, live on BT Sport Box Office.
