258 MGT, the management company behind heavyweight contender Derek Chisora, have confirmed that there have been some initial talks for a trilogy fight with WBC world champion Tyson Fury.

Fury was in action back in April, when he knocked out mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in six rounds.

Afterwards, Fury vowed to retire from the sport.

However, the unbeaten boxer has yet to vacate his title and he appears to be actively training.

Last month, Chisora won a tough twelve round decision in his rematch with world title challenger Kubrat Pulev.

Chisora suffered his first career defeat to Fury in 2011, with the big man outboxing him over twelve rounds. They had a rematch in 2014, with Fury battering and stopping Chisora in ten rounds.

Over the years, Fury and Chisora became good friends - but recently the two boxers had a bad falling out. 

Their animosity stems from Chisora openly backing Whyte to beat Fury in their mandatory fight. Chisora said he was willing to stake his "house" on the outcome.

In a recent interview, Fury detailed their fallout and promised to punch Chisora 'in the face' if they run into each other.

Chisora, in response, said he was very willing to settle their differences in the ring.

If a deal comes together, it will happen before the end of the year, according to Chisora's team.

David Ghansa of 258 MGT told The Independent: "Tyson’s team have indeed reached out to us about a potential fight towards the end of the year.

"And we have held initial discussions with more talks to be scheduled in due course. It would be a massive fight for the UK if we can make it happen, and a fight that we have seen sells very well in the past. I think that fight sells out a stadium in a pre-Christmas cracker.”
