Tyson Fury announces boxing return with one goal in mind: Beating Derek Chisora

After announcing his retirement from boxing in April, Tyson Fury has changed course and now plans to return to the ring.

The heavyweight champion, who last defeated Dillian Whyte by technical knockout in April, made it clear in a series of social media posts that he would prefer to fight fellow Englishman Derek Chisora. The two boxers have fought twice before, with Fury winning both bouts.

"I've decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight world champion in history to have two trilogies, one with Deontay Wilder and one with Derek Chisora," said Fury.

"I'd always say I'd fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career and here we are, breaking all records again and setting precedents."

Tyson Fury's retirement lasted just four months

Fury (32-0-1, 23 KO) had previously criticised Chisora on Instagram, accusing the 38-year-old of "running away" from the trilogy fight after Fury outpointed him during a 2011 fight and a rematch. in 2014.

"You're running, Derek, from the trilogy," Fury said.

"You call yourself war, you should call yourself chicken."

Chisora has already filed paperwork for Fury fight

Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs), who recently ended a streak of three straight losses with a split decision win over Kubrat Pulev last month, responded on Twitter by telling Fury to "send [him] the paperwork" for the fight.

According to ESPN's Mike Coppinger, the event is planned for December at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Fury revealed on Twitter that he will be trained by training partner Isaac Lowe for the fight.

Four months ago, Fury announced his retirement, although few believed it would really be the end.

In fact, his credibility was doubted to the extent that the World Boxing Council (WBC) did not remove his championship belt, assuming that sooner or later he would return to the ring, and so it was. The Gypsy King is back.
