Tyson Fury: WBC heavyweight champion targets comeback clash with Derek Chisora ​​| boxing news


Tyson Fury has announced a return to boxing and is targeting a third fight against Derek Chisora.

Fury said after beating Dillian Whyte to retain his WBC title at Wembley Stadium in London in April that he was retiring from the sport.

However, the 33-year-old seems to have already changed his mind and posted a video on social media announcing his planned return.

“I decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight champion in history to have two trilogies, one with Deontay Wilder, a second with Derek Chisora.

“I always said I would fight Derek Chisora ​​at the end of my career.”

Fury beat Chisora ​​twice early in his career, before beating Wladimir Klitschko in his first world title fight in 2015. He also beat Wilder twice after their first title fight ended in a draw.

Undefeated Fury also posted a video on Instagram accusing Chisora ​​of running away from the fight and urging him to sign a contract.

Chisora, 38, responded with her own video telling Fury to “send me the paperwork”.

A fight against Chisora ​​would immediately increase speculation of a potential unification bout between Fury and WBA, IBF and WBO titleholder Oleksandr Usyk, or Anthony Joshua.

In the same social media post, Fury announced that he would be trained by former English champion and Commonwealth featherweight Isaac Lowe, having worked with his uncle Peter Fury, Ben Davison and, most recently, SugarHill Steward.

“Why I chose Isaac Lowe as my coach, because when I was with Peter, Isaac was there,” Fury said. “When I was with Ben, Isaac was always there and when I was with SugarHill, Isaac was always there.

“He’s always given me information and he knows me better than anyone on the planet, and we’re a great team. We’ve always been together and we’re going to finish this together.

“We’ve always worked really well together and here we are on the verge of putting on a massive, massive event.”
