Retired heavyweight champion Tyson Fury recently announced his return to boxing. In a video posted on Twitter, Fury revealed that he plans to go back in the ring again. He also named who he intends to fight in the comeback bout.

“I’ve decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight world champion in history to have two trilogies. One with Deontay Wilder and the second one with Derek Chisora. I’d always say I’d fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career, and here we are,” Fury said.

Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora have already clashed twice, in 2011 and 2014, with Fury coming out as the winner in both fights. According to ESPN the third bout could take place in December at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Retired after defeating Dillian Whyte

In April, champion Tyson Fury retired from boxing after knocking out Dillian Whyte at a packed Wembley Stadium.

“You know, I promised my lovely wife that after the Wilder 3 fight, that fight would be it and I meant it,” Fury said in the post-fight interview. “But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believed I deserved and owed it to the fans. Now it’s all done. I have to be a man of my word and I think this is it. This might be the final curtain of the Gypsy King.”
