Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora 3 Marks The Second Time British Heavyweight Sensation Fights In The UK In 2022
WBC world champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) and veteran heavyweight Derek Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) meet in a controversially received trilogy clash at the 62,850-capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England this Saturday, December 3.
Fury and Chisora have clashed twice before with their 2011 bout for the British title seeing Fury rip the unbeaten record off Chisora through a 118-111, 117-112, 117-112 unanimous points decision. The pair rematched in 2014 in a final eliminator for the WBO world title where Fury dominated Chisora from start to finish, leading to the British veteran retiring on his stool after ten completed rounds.
The ‘Gypsy King’ boxed in the UK back in April for the first time in just under four years and set a British record, bringing 94,000 fans to the national stadium where he viciously knocked out mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte inside six rounds.
Fury attempted to secure bouts with unified champion Oleksandr Usyk and British rival Anthony Joshua but with them both failing to materialise, Fury decided that he needed to fight for a second time in 2022 and gave long-time rival Chisora a third fight.
Fury vs Chisora 3 will be co-promoted by Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions in association with Bob Arum’s Top Rank live on BT Sport Box Office in the UK for a record-high £26.95 pay-per-view cost and ESPN + in the US.

ESPN + has scheduled its undercard stream for 1 pm ET/11 am PT.
The Fury Chisora 3 pay-per-view broadcast is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm UK time (2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT) with main event ring walks scheduled for as early as 9:00 pm UK time (4:00 pm ET/1:00 pm PT) according to BT Sport who commented that the plan is for “the main event set to go down slightly earlier than normal”.
It has been widely reported that Chisora’s purse for this clash will be £2,000,000 ($2,413,000) due to comments made by Fury at their launch press conference. There are no official reports on Fury’s purse but is expected to be in excess of $20,000,000.
