The current WBC heavyweight champion will not be facing Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua soon. Instead, ESPN claims that Fury is close to finalizing an agreement to fight long-time contender Derek Chisora on December 3 in London.
The two times Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) has faced up against Dereck Chisora, he has come out on top both times.
The third bout will likely go down at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which can hold over 60,000 soccer fans.
After Anthony Joshua was knocked out for a second bout on August 20, many predicted that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury would face Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed crown.
When that failed to materialize, he began negotiations with Anthony Joshua for a long-awaited rematch. Discussions, however, froze up around the end of last month.
So it looks like Fury will defend his title voluntarily against an old adversary, with whom he has been in communication for months.
