Heavyweight Derek Chisora surely has his hands full with his current assignment, schedule to face Oleksandr Usyk next weekend, but with a with Chisora is already saying he hopes to get another fight against champion Tyson Fury, to whom he’s already lost twice before.

Speaking to Sky Sports about another potential fight against Fury, Chisora says that Fury has told him personally that he’s willing to give him another bite at the apple.

“I think it would be a great fight to have with ‘The Gypsy King’, because he’s always promised me a third fight. He owes me anyway, because we speak every day, and he owes me that fight. He’s always saying he wants to give me another fight, so he’s a man of his word, so that would be the fight I would like to have.”

Chisora would continue by saying he and Fury maintain a good relationship outside of the ring, but all that goes out of the window once it’s time to fight. But before Chisora can think about Fury, he’ll have to get through the pound-for-pound rated Usyk, which should be no easy task.
