- Tyson Fury called out former opponent Derek Chisora via Instagram
- Fury claims that Chisora has been sent a contract for a fight between the pair

- The two previously fought in 2011 and 2014, with Fury winning both fights
Tyson Fury has revealed his plans for a return to the ring against former world title-challenger Derek Chisora, but claims Del Boy is ‘running from the trilogy’.
Fury appeared on Instagram to call out his former opponent, claiming that Chisora has been sent a contract for a prospective third fight between the pair.
‘This one goes out to Derek the s**thouse Chisora, you’re running from the trilogy. You call yourself war but you should yourself chicken, because you’re running from a trilogy for a career-highest payday. Get the f***ing contract signed and stop being a s**thouse.’ Fury said.
Fury last fought in April, stopping Dillian Whyte in the sixth before announcing his retirement
Derek Chisora was last in action last month, avenging a previous defeat to Kubrat Pulev
The Gypsy King has twice fought Chisora as a professional, winning the first bout via a lopsided judges’ decision in 2011, before forcing Del Boy to retire on his stool after the tenth round when the pair rematched in 2014.
Though the rivals had reconciled following their second meeting, tensions began rising once more earlier this year after it emerged that Fury was planning on coming out of retirement to make a return to the ring.
In an interview with iFL TV last month, Chisora said: ‘Listen Frank Warren and the Gypsy King’s posse, just tell me when and where or what time and I am there. I just want to fight, if you are a fighter you should fight everybody out there. It is just business it would be a great fight with Tyson.’
Fury first defeated Chisora via unanimous decision back in 2011, the first defeat for Del Boy
Chisora’s trainer pulled him out of the fight after the 10th round in the 2015 rematch with Fury
Chisora last fought back in July, where he earned a hard-fought split decision victory in a rematch with Kubrat Pulev, breaking a three-fight losing streak in the process.
Meanwhile Fury has recently been training alongside Joseph Parker as the former world champion prepares for a main-event clash with British Olympian Joe Joyce on September 24.
Fury has also been linked with a showdown with the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua that is due to be staged later this month in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Bob Arum claims Fury could fight Oleksandr Usyk if the Ukrainian defeats Anthony Joshua
Speaking to Barbershop Conversations via Boxing Scene, Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum expressed hopes that a fight with either Usyk or Joshua could be made in the future:
‘I’m hoping that Usyk wins because I have talked with his people and I think they would be anxious to fight Tyson Fury,’ Arum said.
‘I am hoping to do that fight in December or early next year.
‘I just think Usyk is a better talent than Joshua and he is certainly quicker than him and I would like Usyk in the undisputed fight, but could it go the other way.
