Fury vs Chisora rematch approved for British title by BBBofC

If Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora meet in a rematch, they will be fighting for the vacant British heavyweight title.

Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora have talked about a potential rematch this summer, and if the fight comes around, the British Boxing Board of Control has approved it as a British heavyweight title fight, according to a report by Terence Dooley.

Fury (22-0, 16 KO) and Chisora (20-4, 13 KO) each last fought on February 15, sharing the bill at Copper Box with easy wins over Joey Abell and Kevin Johnson, respectively. There was a lot of talk then of them meeting in a rematch of their 2011 bout, which Fury won handily over an out of shape Chisora.

Since then, though, Chisora has called out Alexander Povetkin -- which doesn't appear as though it's going to happen -- and there has also been talk of him facing Kubrat Pulev, which is a mandatory European title fight and has a purse bid set for March 18 right now.

If Fury-Chisora II does happen, do you think a better conditioned Chisora can make more of a fight of it, or even end Fury's undefeated run?
