It is an official fact that WBC champion Tyson Fury will fight Derek Chisora ââin the twelfth month. By the way, Fury has already defeated Chisora ââtwice in his career, but between HrgoviÄ, Ruiz, Ortiz and even Usyk, the decision still fell on Chisora.
In his last appearance, Derek defeated Kubrat Pulev by split decision, and before that he had three defeats in a row. Regardless, he was given the opportunity to attack Fury for the title, although the reality is that Fury chose the easiest possible opponent at the moment just to stay active for a potentially bigger match.
Eddie Hearn commented on the current situation
"It's difficult because Derek is my mate, but I've obviously seen the response from the public and how they're disappointed with the fight," Hearn told Betfred's Lightweight Boxing Show.
"The fact that Tyson has beaten Derek twice already makes the fight a hard sell in that respect. Tyson Fury was always going to pick an easy fight for December 3rd ultimately and we thought that was going to be Manuel Charr, but as it was met with such disdain from social media, they went with Derek Chisora instead.
"If Tyson hadn't beaten Derek twice already, then two Brits going head-to-head is a pick we would have understood. The reason people are upset with this fight is because it's an unwanted trilogy. Del Boy always shows up and he's coming into the fight off the back of a victory against Kubrat Pulev.
He will give everything in that fight." "They've said they've sold 50,000 tickets already, so I believe the fight will sell out the stadium. Tyson Fury is a big name and people know who Derek Chisora is," Hearn said. "It's a bit of a weird one, December 3rd without a roof but us Brits are a bit crazy and think it's funny, so we will turn up anyway.
They'll need a strong undercard because I don't think it's going to smash pay-per-view records, but it could have been a lot worse. If Tyson would have fought Manuel Charr, then maybe nobody would have shown up." Fury will fight against Chisora ââat Tottenham's stadium on 3.12.
Although that fight in itself is uninteresting as confirmed by Hearn, we hope that behind it is the one against Usyk for the unification of the titles.
