‘Itchy feet’: Tyson Fury ‘wants to end his short-lived retirement to fight Derek Chisora

Tyson Fury wants to make his boxing comeback against Derek Chisora at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in December, according to reports.

The 33-year-old heavyweight champion announced his intention to retire from the sport after beating Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April, but he has now decided to return to the ring.

The Gypsy King has sent an offer to his former foe Chisora to fight him for a third time in Wales later this year, as reported by ESPN.

‘Call yourself war, but you should call yourself chicken’:…

Fury has been promoted by Frank Warren and Arum in recent years, but it is understood that the offer made to Chisora has come from Goldstar Promotions, who handle Fury’s meet-and-greets in the UK.

However, their offer currently falls significantly short of Chisora’s demands, meaning that a deal is yet to be struck between the two parties.

Fury and Chisora first met back in 2011, with the former emerging victorious via unanimous decision.

The result of their rematch three years later was even more emphatic in Fury’s favour as Chisora’s corner pulled their man out after the tenth round.

Speaking in a video posted on social media on Tuesday morning, Fury announced that he was delaying his retirement plans to pursue a fight with Chisora, and that he had already selected his next trainer – his cousin, Isaac Lowe.

‘I always said I would fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career and here we are breaking all records again,’ Fury said.

‘Why I have chosen Isaac Lowe as my trainer is when I was with Peter (Fury), Isaac was there, when I was with Ben (Davison), Isaac was always there, and when I was with SugarHill (Steward), Isaac’s always been there.

‘He’s always given me information, he knows me better than anybody on the planet and we’re a great team – we’ve always been together and we’re going to finish this out together.

‘We’ve always worked very well together and here we are about to take on a massive, massive, massive event.’

Chisora hit back, claiming he was yet to receive a contract for the proposed fight, and that Fury should speak with Warren and Arum to get the deal done.

‘Tyson, stop talking s**** mate. Phone mummy and daddy,’ he responded.
‘Mummy’s Frank Warren, daddy is f***ing Bob Arum – tell them you want to hang out with me okay? And send me the paperwork b****.’
It now appears that Chisora has received an offer – just not from the source he may have been expecting.
