Zimbabwe born British heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora will take aim at WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury for the third time in his career at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December.
Chisora 38, goes into the fight on 03 December after ending a run of three successive loses beating Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in July.
Chisora twice lost to Fury in 2011 and in 2014 and will be hoping for third time luck.
Fury’s promoter, 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.”
Warren reiterated Fury’s plan to take on Joshua’s conqueror, Oleksandr Usyk, in a unification fight in the first part of next year. The Ukrainian has indicated he had no desire to fight before the new year.
“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,” said Warren.
