Derek Chisora insists Tyson Fury has 'promised' him a trilogy fight if he overcomes Oleksandr Usyk


‘He owes me that fight’: Derek Chisora insists Tyson Fury has ‘promised’ him a trilogy fight if he overcomes WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk

  • British heavyweight Derek Chisora is set to face Oleksandr Usyk on October 31 
  • Ukranian WBO mandatory challenger Usyk is also set to face Anthony Joshua 
  • But Chisora insists should he beat Usyk he will fight WBC champion Tyson Fury
  • Fury defeated Chisora on points and with a stoppage in their two previous fights 

Derek Chisora believes he will get the chance to fight Tyson Fury for a third time if he manages to defeat Oleksandr Usyk next week.

A shot at a world title is on the line when the British heavyweight takes on his Ukrainian counterpart on Saturday, October 31. 

WBO mandatory challenger Usyk is already set to face unified champion Anthony Joshua, but Chisora is already looking beyond fighting him and pursuing a trilogy clash with WBC champion Fury if he emerges victorious.

‘I think it would be a great fight to have with ‘The Gypsy King’, because he’s always promised me a third fight,’ Chisora told Sky Sports.

‘He owes me anyway, because we speak every day, and he owes me that fight.

‘He’s always saying he wants to give me another fight, so he’s a man of his word, so that would be the fight I would like to have.’

Fury defeated Chisora in their previous two fights, winning on points at the Wembley Arena in July 2011, before winning with a 10th-round retirement at London’s Excel Arena in November 2014.

Chisora nevertheless claims he holds a good relationship with Fury, while also stating he maintains regular contact with Joshua.

‘You know what, I get on with everybody, but when it comes to fight, it’s fight time.

‘It’s just business. After all, when the gloves are off, it’s all hugs and kisses, so if it happens, it happens.’

Chisora’s comments come with Fury reportedly considering Carlos Takam and unbeaten Agit Kabayel as his opponents for his homecoming fight in December.

The Gypsy King is preparing for a high-profile 2021 match-up with fellow Brit Joshua having abandoned his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

Joe DeGuardia, the president of Star Boxing, who co-promote Takam with Top Rank, told Sky Sports: ‘Certainly I believe that, when you look at who is out there and who is available, Carlos would probably be the best guy out there to fight Fury.

Fury meanwhile is preparing for a mouthwatering clash with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua in 2021

‘Kabayel is undefeated and that’s something good for him and he’s got a nice victory, but it would be good for Kabayel if he had a little more experience before fighting somebody like Fury.

‘Carlos certainly has that experience.’

Chisora has previous experience of fighting Fury’s reported next opponents, having been outpointed by Kabayel, a former European champion, three years ago before brutally knocking out Takam in 2018, a year after the Frenchman’s defeat by Joshua.
