WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23KOs) runs back his old rivalry with fellow Brit Dereck Chisora (33-12-0, 23KOs) on Saturday evening, eight years on from their second fight back in 2014.

Morecambe’s Fury will appear for the second time in 2022 following his sixth-round stoppage victory over Dillian Whyte in April.

Fury subsequently announced his retirement from the sport before settling on a comeback against old foe Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 38-year-old ‘Del Boy’ edged past Kubrat Pulev in May and now gets a second shot at world honours.

Fury already holds two victories over Chisora dating back to 2011 and 2014 and enters the evening an overwhelming favourite ahead of a potential undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk next year.

The Ukrainian holds the WBO, WBA and IBF titles at heavyweight and will be ringside in London on Saturday evening.

The fight will be shown live on BT Sport Box Office for £26.95 with ring walks for the main event set to begin at 9:15pm UK time.

Daniel Dubois (18-1-0, 17KOs) and Kevin Lerena (28-1-0, 14KOs) will also face-off in an enticing heavyweight chief support bout.

Britain’s Dubois has rebuilt well under trainer Shane McGuigan since his 2020 defeat to Joe Joyce.

Victory over Lerena will prove the 25-year-old’s best win yet as a world title shot draws closer.

Dubois has been confirmed as the WBA’s mandatory challenger in recent weeks.

Lerena has overcame gatekeepers such as Mariusz Wach and Bogdan Dinu since moving up from cruiserweight but is yet to face someone of Dubois’ calibre.

European lightweight champion Yvan Mendy (47-5-1, 22KOs) hopes to make the first defence of his title since claiming the belt in April.

Undefeated Ukrainian Denys Berinchyk (16-0-0, 9KOs) will be in the opposing corner looking to pickup the first major title of his career.

Light-heavyweight prospect Karol Itauma (8-0-0, 6KOs) is step up to the eight-round distance for the first time as a professional in his ninth contest.

Fury stablemate Isaac Lowe (21-2-3, 6KOs) will return to the ring on the back of two consecutive defeats to Luis Alberto Lopez and Nick Ball.

Sandeep Singh Bhatti (8-4-0, 1KO) will be in the opposing corner for their six-round super-featherweight contest.

Ben Davison‘s lightweight Royston Barney-Smith (3-0-0) takes on Cruz Perez (3-3-0, 1KO) over four rounds.

Hosea Burton (27-3-0, 12KOs) also returns at cruiserweight against Reinis Porozovs (21-19-2, 14KOs).
