No Filter Boxing - Zhilei Zhang vs Joe Joyce IISep 24
Derek Chisora will be out for redemption as he prepares for a third fight against the undefeated Tyson Fury on Saturday 3 December.
The Gypsy King will defend his WBC heavyweight championship title against Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and you can watch all the action exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
At 38, Del Boy has the edge in terms of experience, although his form of late may raise some eyebrows.
Chisora fell to three straight losses in 2020 and 2021, beaten by Oleksandr Usyk and Joseph Parker (twice).
The Zimbabwe-born heavyweight got back on track with victory over Kubrat Pulev in July, but Fury will be a far more formidable opponent.
Chisora is unlikely to be overly daunted, though, as he heads into his 46th professional fight.
The veteran made his debut in 2007, beating István Kecskés by TKO at Wembley. He was a relatively late starter to the sport, taking to the ring as a professional for the first time aged 24.
At 19, Chisora had joined Finchley ABC in Barnet, the club that would also become home to Anthony Joshua.
His natural talent was obvious and it wasn’t until 2011 that he tasted defeat for the first time, losing to a young Fury with the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles on the line.
Chisora went on to lose to the likes of Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko and David Haye over the next year, but his status as a worthy title challenger had been established.
Heading into his third bout with Fury, few expect Chisora to topple the Gypsy King. But experience is on the latter’s side, and no other fighter is as familiar with Fury’s strengths.
Derek Chisora: Record
Chisora’s record stands at 33 wins and 12 losses.
After 12 consecutive victories to begin his professional career, he secured his first titles with wins against Danny Williams and Sam Sexton before facing Fury.
Three straight losses to Helenius, Klitschko and Haye proved a setback but losses have been sporadic for Chisora rather than a regular occurrence.
There have been question marks over his form heading into the third meeting with Fury, but victory over Pulev will give Chisora some much-needed momentum.
Derek Chisora: Knockouts
Just over half of Chisora’s wins have been by knockout, with a total of 23 from his 45 fights.
The last of them came against David Price, beaten by TKO at the O2 Arena in 2019, with the WBO Inter-Continental heavyweight title on the line.
