Tyson Fury’s heavyweight grudge match with Dereck Chisora has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 22, at the ExCeL London.

The pair will hope for more luck this time around having seen their original July 26 fight postponed.

Londoner Chisora withdrew after fracturing his hand in sparring in the week prior to the fight with Alexander Ustinov brought in to fight Fury.

On the night before the show Fury’s uncle and first pro trainer, Hughie, was taken critically ill and Fury was withdrawn by his other uncle and current trainer, Peter.

Now promoter Frank Warren has confirmed another date is set for their battle for the European and vacant British titles in what is a final eliminator for a shot at the WBO World Championship.

Fury said: “Chisora is now going to get a beating twice as bad than the one that he was going to get for pulling out.

“All Chisora is to me is an obstacle and I’ve got to smash through him to get where I want to be and that’s fighting for the world title.

“He’s messed me around and now I’m going to make him pay. I’m happy for the fans who will get to see me crush Chisora for second and final time and send him into retirement.”

European Champion Chisora said: “What happened with my hand has happened and the timing of the injury was terrible, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time and of course Fury had personal issues going on with him.

“I just want to fight Fury, get revenge, beat him good and proper, and move on to fight Klitschko for the world title.”
