Via Charles Brun: Tyson Fury’s trio fight with aging warhorse Derek Chisora is scheduled for December at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
This is the interesting part. Instead of Fury promoters Bob Arum & Frank Warren promoting the Fury-Chisora III fight, it will be done through Goldstar Promotionaccording to ESPN.
It’s unclear if Fury brought the idea of fighting 38-year-old Chisora to Arum & Warren and was quickly shot down or his endorsement deal with them had expired.
It’s hard to imagine money-wise promoter Arum agreeing to host a fight between Fury and Chisora. Arum will likely see it as a war that will spend money, resulting in massive losses.
If Chisora is a quality fighter, there’s an outside chance that one of the wealthy investors in Saudi Arabia will be willing to put in the money to make the Fury-Chisora fight in December.
Unfortunately, the Chisora is a below average weight, and it would be a waste of time for one of the wealthy Saudis to release this albatross in the Middle East.
At this point, the two sides are seven digits apart, according to Mike Coppinger. Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) asking for a million+ isn’t too surprising, as anyone fighting Fury is expected to make big money.
If Chisora is looking for OVER a million, that could be a problem. It’s not every day that you see a world champion as famous as Fury suddenly decide he wants to fight a laner.
With Fury’s sudden anxiety about taking damage in his teamfights, that means he’ll manually pick Chisora rather than a top 15 contender for a busy fight. his busy December.
