Tyson Fury has confirmed a December 3 fight against Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tyson Fury has announced his next opponent. On December 3, the WBC heavyweight champion will face Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

This fight comes after talks to make an all-British superfight with Anthony Joshua this year fell through, but Fury's promotional team is now aiming for an undisputed world title fight with Oleksandr Usyk in early 2023.

"Whenever Tyson Fury fights, it's a big deal, and I expect him to put on another spectacular show for the fans," Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said.

"There are discussions about Tyson's future, but the first order of business is a fight against an extraordinarily tough fighter in Derek Chisora."

On the same card as Fury vs. Chisora, WBA'regular' world champion Daniel Dubois will defend his title for the first time against South African southpaw Kevin Lerena.

"Tyson can't afford any mistakes in this fight because he has the much-publicized undisputed match-up with Usyk in the new year, which we're really looking forward to," Fury's UK promoter Frank Warren said.

"I'm also excited to announce that Daniel Dubois will be making his first WBA title defense against Kevin Lerena. It's a true heavyweight showdown, and Daniel represents the best of the new generation."

Fury has boxed Chisora twice before, outpointing him in a British title fight in 2011, then dominating and stopping him in a European championship fight three years later.

From there, Fury went on to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko and become the unified heavyweight champion in 2015. He returned to boxing after a two-year hiatus to eventually begin his trilogy with Deontay Wilder, which saw him win the WBC title and begin his second championship reign, solidifying his position as one of the sport's biggest stars.

Fury defeated Dillian Whyte in six rounds earlier this year at Wembley Stadium, and after considering retirement, he decided to continue his career.

He initially targeted Oleksandr Usyk, but the Ukrainian is not scheduled to fight until 2023. Fury then began negotiations for the Joshua fight, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement. With Fury's next fight scheduled for December 3, Derek Chisora entered the picture.

Chisora's recent form has been inconsistent. He took Usyk to 12 rounds in 2020 before losing two straight to Joseph Parker. But, in July, he won his first fight since defeating David Price in 2019, outscoring Kubrat Pulev at The O2.

If Fury is aiming for a unification fight with WBO, WBA, and IBF champion Usyk, this fight with Chisora will provide valuable activity before the end of 2022.
