Tyson Fury is set to mark his comeback into the ring and defend his WBC world title for the third time against a familiar opponent.

It’s not the fight boxing fans were expecting, but it’s the one they’ll make do with, with Tyson Fury set to defend his world heavyweight title against Derek Chisora.

The heavyweight rivals turned friends squared off twice in 2011 in a British title fight and again in 2014 at the European championship with the Gypsy King claiming a comfortable win on both occasions.

Fury went on to defeat Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko and later American Deontay Wilder in a Trilogy bout.

The 34-year-old Fury returned to the ring in April to claim an assertive win against fellow British boxer Dillian Whyte and floated the idea of hanging his gloves.

In the six months that followed, Fury teased potential exhibition fights against Francis Ngannou, Oleksandr Usyk and Hafthor Bjornsson, before ultimately settling for a unification title bout against Anthony Joshua.

After negotiations to face Joshua collapsed, the Gypsy King has now decided to push ahead with a bout against Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, on the 3rd of December.

Fury is currently unbeaten in 32 fights meanwhile Chisora has won 33 of 45 fights, recording three losses in his last four bouts
