Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora III has officially been confirmed for December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium live on BT Sport Box Office. Tickets will be available via Ticket Master at midday on Friday.
The Gypsy King will put up his WBC title against Del Boy with Daniel Dubois defending his WBA (regular) strap against Kevin Lerena in the co-main event. Speaking about the doubleheader during a press release from Queensbury Promotions, Frank Warren 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.
“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.
The pair used to be very good friends, however, their relationship soured after Chisora predicted that Dillian Whyte would knock out Fury ahead of their April showdown at Wembley Stadium. Taking exception to the comments, Fury vowed to ‘punch’ Chisora the next time they saw each other.
Shortly after, Fury made an approach to face Chisora in December but the initial negotiations fell through with Chisora ‘pricing himself out’ of the contest. Now, an agreement has finally been reached and the score can be settled.
