Tyson Fury v Derek Chisora will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION Tyson Fury will fight Derek Chisora in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3. 

It was announced yesterday that the 'Gypsy King' will fight Chisora for the third time. Fury first fought Chisora and won via a unanimous decision at Wembley in July 2011, and followed that up three years later with a retirement win at London's Excel. 

Fury has since gone onto to beat the some of the world's best boxers like Ukrainian legend Vladimir Klitschko, American superstar Deontay Wilder three times, and others 

After his win against Dillion Whyte this year, Fury announced he would be retiring from the sport. He performed U-turn on that and was set to face long-term rival and fellow Brit Antony Joshua, but talks broke down due to Joshua missing the deadline to complete the paperwork. 

Fury will be a heavy favourite for his bout with Chisora as he's gone onto become two-time world champion since their first fight. The 38-year-old has 12 losses on his resume, with three losses in his last four fights.  


Fury's promoter Frank Warren speaking yesterday said: "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." 

It had been expected that a potential fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Fury would take place sooner, but that's expected to take place after Christmas. 

"Tyson can't afford any slip-up in this fight as he has the much-publicised undisputed match-up with Usyk in the new year which we're really looking forward to," added Warren.
