Tyson Fury set to fight Derek Chisora on December 3 as Gypsy King agrees trilogy after Anthony Joshua bout collapses | The Sun

TYSON FURY is set to fight Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout next after talks with Anthony Joshua were KO'd.

Fury recently revealed his boxing return was in the works for December 3 in Cardiff with an announcement imminent.

SunSport understands he has now verbally agreed to fight Chisora once more to complete their trilogy series.

Fury had offered Joshua a 60/40 financial split in his favour but promoters could not agree terms and went back to pointing the finger.

And with Oleksandr Usyk – who twice beat AJ – out until next year hopes of a unification were also shelved.

Fury had offered Mahmoud Charr and Chisora the chance to fight him as he drew up alternate plans to AJ.

But Chisora, 38, is due to beat Charr, 37, to it and get his third crack at the Gypsy King, over a decade from his first go.

Fury, an underdog at the time, beat the heavyweight on points in 2011 and then won by stoppage in their 2014 rematch.

But he had always promised Chisora a needless trilogy, as their love-hate relationship changed from friend to foe on the regular.

Currently, the pair are feuding after Fury, 34, became irritated at Del Boy for always picking against him.

Fury announced the latest of his retirements in April after knocking out Dillian Whyte, 34, at Wembley.

But by August the unpredictable two-time world champion claimed he was coming back in order to fight Chisora and sent a £2m proposal.

A month after that, Fury challenged Joshua, 32, out of the blue, leading to sock but genuine conversations for a Battle of Britain.

Although opposing camps walked away from the negotiation table last week, all while Eddie Hearn said Chisora was in talks with Fury.

Joshua is now expected to return on December 17 where he begins his rebuilding job following consecutive losses to Usyk.

And Fury meanwhile will bide his time and wait for the Ukrainian hero by welcoming Chisora back to the ring.

Usyk, 35, has confirmed he is ready to return next year for what would be the heavyweight division first four-belt undisputed decider.
