TYSON FURY’s return to the ring has been confirmed as he takes on Derek Chisora in a trilogy match.
The Gypsy King hasn’t been in the ring since destroying Dillian Whyte by sixth-round TKO in April at a sold-out Wembley Stadium.
A whopping 94,000 fans, a British record, packed the England soccer team’s national stadium that night to watch Fury defend his WBC heavyweight crown before announcing his retirement in the ring afterwards.
However, his retirement didn’t last long, as towards the end of the summer he called up Anthony Joshua for a massive money spin clash.
However, the talks did not materialize and now Fury is about to close a deal to fight Chisora, who beat Kubrat Pulev in exciting fashion in July.
However, Chisora has faced Fury twice before, losing the first on points before being stopped in his 2014 sequel.

What has been said?
Rage: “I am not going to sit here and insult Chisora. I respect that. I have nothing bad to say about Derek; he is a good fighter, and he brings the game to him every time.
“[But] In my reign right now, I am reigning supreme. I’ll beat him, and then I’ll beat the little middleweight [Usyk].
“He says he’s going to knock me out, I want to see him do it. If he does, I’ll be the first to congratulate him.”
chisora: “I am a black belt in crazy! The mindset is unbelievable right now, it’s crazy.
“It will be face to face. Gotta knock him out, I’m gonna drop him, yeah
“I will beat him. I’m going to knock him out, I’m going to stop him, 100 percent.”
Promoter Frank Warren said: “Tyson wanted to fight in his home country again this year after his special night at Wembley Stadium in April.
“This brings us to the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur stadium and a game against an old rival in Derek Chisora.
“Derek, also a huge favorite among British fans, has reinvented himself in recent years and Tyson has long declared his desire to fight him for a third time.
“Tyson can’t afford any slip-ups in this fight as he has the much-hyped undisputed matchup with Usyk in the New Year that we’re really looking forward to.”
