Fury-Chisora Rematch is Approved By British Board

By Terence Dooley

The BBBoC have approved a request to put the British title on the line for a rematch between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora.  Frank Warren has put in a request to stage a showdown between the two, date and venue to be decided, the Board will serve up the Lonsdale belt and the fighters should serve up a potentially brilliant domestic title fight.

Fury, 22-0 (16), beat Chisora on points in 2011, taking Chisora's British and Commonwealth titles in the process, but the Londoner beat his Mancunian rival to a world title shot with Vitali Klitschko, a decision loss for the WBC belt in February 2012, and also managed to set up a fight with Fury's long-time potential opponent David Haye (L TKO 5 in June of the same year).

Chisora, 20-4 (13), is 5-0 since losing to Haye, the 30-year-old out-pointed Kevin "Kingpin" Johnson at the Copper Box Arena in February; Fury beat Joey Abell by fourth-round TKO on the same bill, both fights serving to set up their highly anticipated rematch.

Despite going over old ground, Fury will relish the chance to keep busy after spending the majority of last year training for two aborted showdowns with Haye.  The 25-year-old signed a deal to appear on BoxNation TV earlier this year, the match with Chisora should generate plenty of attention for the channel and will be no doubt bolstered by a lively build-up between two of the game's most colourful characters.

Hopefully they BOTH come into this fight in 100% proper shape. Chisora has been in fine form lately but still a little on the burly side. Fury, well we all know how he looked in his last bout and the…
