Staying true to his nickname, Derek Chisora is ready to go to “War” against Tyson Fury on December 3. The trilogy between the two takes place in London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Fury’s WBC heavyweight title is on the line. He’s beaten Chisora twice. 

Despite his previous record against Chisora, the four-year age difference, and the wide odds (Fury is the -2500 favorite while Chisora is the +1200 underdog, per Caesars), Fury believes this will be a competitive bout. 

“I did outbox him comfortably the second time, but Chisora’s style has changed and so has mine! I used to be a tip-tap boxer on the back foot, jibbing and jabbing around the ring, but now I’m an HMS destroyer! When you’ve got two heavy forces colliding, then someone is getting knocked out,” Fury stated at a pre-fight press conference, via Sky Sports. “If he lands a punch on me, a big swing, I’m getting knocked out. If I land a big swing on him, then he’s getting knocked out, so the fans are going to win.”
