Tyson Fury Returns From Retirement, Pursues Trilogy Fight
According to Tyson Fury, he’s returning to boxing.
But his comeback isn’t for the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua, it’s for Derek Chisora.
Fury has defeated Chisora twice now, but he is looking for a third time to defeat the fellow Englishman.
“This one goes out to Derek the sh-thouse Chisora,” Fury said in a brief video released Monday.
“You’re running, Derek, from the trilogy. Call yourself ‘War,’ but you should call yourself chicken, because you’re running from a trilogy, from a career highest payday. Get a f–king contract signed, stop being a sh-thouse.”
Fury and Chisora met back in 2011 for their first fight and met again for their second fight in 2014.
Fury won both fights.
According to Chisora’s promoter, Honcho Eddie Hearn, an offer has been sent out.
“It wasn’t enough money,” Hearn told Boxing Social. “I’m not sure we’re gonna see that fight.”
The two fighters have had recent fights this year.
Chisora fought Kubrat Pulev this past July, with a split decision win.
Back in April, Fury went head-to-head with Dillian Whyte, having won the fight. Ever since then, Fury has claimed that he is no longer fighting, but he is now ready to enter the ring again.
But apparently another reason the “Gypsy King” wants to put back the gloves is to make history.
“I’ve decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight champion in history to have two trilogies,” Fury added in the video. “One with Deontay Wilder and the second with Derek Chisora.
“I’d always said I’d fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career. Here we are, breaking all records again and setting new precedents.”
Unfortunately for Fury, there’s been other heavyweights who have had multiple trilogies including former champions Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield, Ezzard Charles and Jersey Joe Walcott.
The Brit also supposedly appointed a new head trainer, Isaac Lowe.
“When I was with Peter (Fury, Tyson’s uncle), Isaac was there,” Fury noted. “When I was with Ben [Davison], Isaac was there. When I was with SugarHill [Steward], Isaac was always there. He’s always giving me great information. We’re a great team. We’ve always been together and we’re going to finish this out together.”
