WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is not overlooking the upcoming trilogy fight with veteran Derek Chisora, which takes place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3.

Fury defeated Chisora in their first two encounters. 

He boxed past Chisora for a unanimous decision victory in 2011, and then pounded him for a stoppage victory in their 2014 rematch.

Fury is a far better fighter than he was back then, but the 'Gypsy King' believes Chisora has also become a better fighter since their two encounters.

"He comes and does exactly what it says on the tin - he goes to war," Fury said. "He has changed his name from Del Boy to War and we're going to get a war. 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. 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."

Fury was looking to take on WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed year-end fight, but the contest never came about as Usyk is looking to return in the first quarter of 2023.

Chisora gave Usyk a tough fight when they met in October of 2020. Usyk overcame Chisora's surge of activity and ultimately won a twelve round unanimous decision.

"He [Chisora] done very well against Usyk," Fury said. "And may I say, who the hell is Usyk? People didn't know his name until he beat the bodybuilder the other day. He was a little, small heavyweight who wasn't going to do anything against AJ when Chisora fought him. But then he stepped up and beat the big bodybuilder and now all of a sudden, he's the killer. I don't think so.

"Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as highly as I rate Usyk, and I will train as hard for Derek as I will for any man in the world. If I didn't, I would have to be an absolute idiot - I will not underestimate Derek Chisora. God forbid I got beat, it won't be for the fact that I had an injury or I didn't train hard enough, it would be the fact that I lost to a better man on the night. We're going to have a fight and that's it. It's going to be a good fight too, because he doesn't shy away and I'm running nowhere, so someone is getting chinned."
