The taped story of Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora: How two pre-trilogy rivals compare as talks about the December fight begin

TYSON FURY and Derek Chisora ​​are getting closer to an unlikely trilogy fight.

Chisora, 38, was beaten by Fury, 33, in 2011 and 2014, leaving little demand for another rematch.

But the pair always insisted they had a verbal agreement to share the ring once more.

Fury has since confirmed he will be coming out of retirement to fight Chisora ​​and claims a contract is being put together.

He said: “I’ve spoken to your management team, we’re all fine.

“Everything is sorted, looks good. Contract is over or a day or so peace you get knocked out.”

As a result, SunSport took a look at how the two men fit together ahead of a possible third showdown.

WBC Champion Fury is five years younger than Chisora ​​despite making his professional debut just 20 months later.

Fury is also unbeaten in 33 professional fights – with the only blemish on his record coming in a controversial tie against Deontay Wilder in December 2018.

In contrast, Chisora ​​has lost 12 of his 45 fights.

These defeats were twice to Fury, twice to Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko, David Haye, Pulev, twice to Dillian Whyte, twice to Agit Kabayel, Oleksandr Usyk and twice to Joseph Parker.

The only real stat where Chisora ​​competes with Fury is their number of KOs – 23 apiece – but Fury’s KO ratio remains higher as he’s had fewer fights.

And when it comes to physical attributes, there is only one winner.

Fury is of course more than a stone heavier than Chisora, over seven inches taller and has an 11 inch range advantage.

Additionally, Fury can switch between orthodox and southpaw stances, while Chisora ​​can only box as an orthodox fighter.

But perhaps the most relevant detail when looking at the two men is their previous fights against each other.

Fury boxed to a comfortable unanimous points win in their first duel more than a decade ago.

And then when they met again in 2014, Fury put on an even more convincing performance as he beat Chisora ​​before forcing him to retire at his stall at the end of the 10th round.

All things considered, all avenues point to another Fury victory should the two clash again later this year.
