WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is now likely to take on Dereck Chisora for a third time on December 3rd at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
The news comes courtesy of Gareth A. Davies of The Telegraph, with the thirty-eight-year-old Chisora the new frontrunner for the December date after talks broke down with Anthony Joshua last week. Fury plans on fighting before the end of the year before an undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk, who ruled himself out until 2023 due to injury.
Fury and Chisora engaged in multiple back-and-forth exchanges via social media in August as a potential trilogy bout looked likely before the trail went cold. Attention then turned to a potential fight with Joshua for a month with Chisora’s chance looking to have passed.
However, the pair clashed ringside in Manchester three weeks ago, with Chisora accusing Fury of ‘ducking him’ over the summer and the former European heavyweight champion looks to have landed his opportunity to fight for another world title once again.
Fury already holds victories over Chisora, comfortably outpointing him in 2011 before forcing a tenth-round stoppage in 2014.
