Tyson Fury looks in fighting shape ahead of proposed Derek Chisora trilogy


Tyson Fury has revealed he ‘cannot wait’ to get back in the ring to defend his WBC heavyweight title on December 3.

The Gypsy King last fought in April when he knocked out Dillian Whyte in the sixth round at Wembley. He announced his intention to retire from the sport after that fight, but has subsequently decided to lace up his boxing gloves again.

He is expected to fight Derek Chisora for the third time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December, and Fury has given an update on his condition with his training camp now well underway.

‘Just finished work hard Wednesday. Getting there, getting in shape, getting as solid as a rock,’ he said in an Instagram video as he showed off his abs.

‘Working hard every day, cannot wait for December the 3rd. Come on, bring it on, let’s end this year with a big bang.’

Fury has never been shy to poke fun at himself for his body shape in the past, famously calling himself a ‘fat pig’ ahead of his proposed rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, which was subsequently cancelled.

However, he appears to be happy with his current weight as he aims to make a statement when he returns to action later this year.

Despite beating Chisora twice before, Fury looks set to face his fellow Brit once again, although Chisora has denied that a deal has been agreed yet.

Fury had been in negotiations for a super-fight with Anthony Joshua, but these talks broke down, pushing Chisora to the front of the queue to take on the Gypsy King.

Should Fury come through his proposed clash with Chisora unscathed, he is likely to take on Oleksandr Usyk in early 2023 in a fight that will crown an undisputed champion in boxing’s blue-riband division.
