Tyson Fury has managed to set the record for his failed trio fight with Derek Chisora.
The WBC heavyweight champion recently excited fight fans when he announced his return and set his sights on a third bout with his old friend.
Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) confirmed last week –– on his 34th birthday –– that he is retired once again, empty his Ring Magazine heavyweight belt in the process.
Chisora was most recently in action in July at the O2 Arena in London when he defeated Kubrat Pulev in a rematch of their 2016 clash.
‘Del Boy’ was then targeted by ‘The Gypsy King’, with whom he had a very public fight recently, for a third bout, although the 38-year-old Finchley claimed that that the war never ends.
Fury said in a video posted on social network on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s unified heavyweight world championship rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua:
“I saw Del Boy there again.”
Usyk and Joshua compete for the recently stripped Ring belt of Fury’s as well as WBA Super, IBF, IBO and WBO beat the Ukrainian claimant by dethroning ‘AJ’ at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London last September.
The return, which could return Fury to action later, will take place at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia.
Whoever wins will look to set up an undisputedly lucrative fight with Fury, the only remaining real estate holder in the sport’s top division. He has repeatedly talked about boxing again, despite insisting he is done with the sport and was recently given an ultimatum when WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman gave him until 26 August to confirm his latest break in writing before reviewing the status of the green and gold titles.

Chisora is in the care of Anthony Joshua and Fury’s 258 management company claiming they have Turn down a whopping £2m fee to face him for a third time after being beaten in 2011 and 2014 respectively.

“They want £3 million. Robert Davies is there to confirm and so is Frank Warren.
