PREVIEW FOR WHYTE v FRANKLIN
Boxing Day comes early with not one but two world heavyweight title fights at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening. Topping the bill is a clash between Tyson Fury the WBC world heavyweight king and Londoner Derek Chisora with Fury v Chisora tickets on sale shortly.
It’s the third meeting between Fury and Chisora who first met in July 2011 with the British and Commonwealth titles at stake – Fury prevailing on points by a unanimous decision.
Fury, who intends on fighting Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship in the first part of 2023, will once again perform on UK soil following his April knockout of mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
The all-British clash of the titans is supported by another heavyweight showdown, with rising star Daniel Dubois squaring up against South Africa’s Kevin Lerna in Dubois’ first defence of the WBA ‘regular’ title he won with a knockout victory in June over American Trevor Bryan.
“I am thrilled to be delivering a Tyson Fury world title defence in front of the British fans in London,” said promoter Frank Warren. “Tyson clearly conquered America across his trilogy with Deontay Wilder and there is also huge demand to stage his fights from sites across the world.
“Tyson wanted to fight in his home country again this year following his special night at Wembley Stadium in April. This brings us to the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a match against an old rival in Derek Chisora.
“Derek, also a big favourite with British fans, has reinvented himself in recent years and Tyson has long stated his wish to fight him for a third time.
“Tyson can’t afford any slip-up in this fight as he has the much-publicised undisputed match-up with Usyk in the New Year which we’re really looking forward to.”
Fury v Chisora tickets are no longer available.
