On December 3, “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) will allegedly face veteran Derek Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) for the third time. While most boxing fans are saddened by this choice of opponent, British retiree and sidekick of the champion Matthew Macklin (35-6, 22 KOs) believes that not everything is so bad.
“You know, as far as Chisora is concerned, this person will always set the heat. He gives his best in the ring, – the ex-applicant believes. “Derek can fight anyone and I will always watch him fight, and it’s the same with Fury.”
“So I think it’s better for Tyson to stay active than not fight at all. Would we prefer it to be AJ or Usyk? Naturally. But if that’s not possible, then I think Fury is doing the right thing by stepping into the ring. [против кого угодно]’ said the Brit.
Fury defeated Chisora twice – in 2011 and 2014; in the first fight, Tyson outboxed the overtrained Derek, and in the second he knocked him out in the 10th round.
It’s funny that today Chisora himself said that “I will not fight him, these are all rumors”, and at the end of September he generally said that he had completed his career.
