WBC World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury recently issued a challenge to Dereck Chisora for a bare-knuckle boxing fight after talks for their trilogy fight fell through. ‘The Gypsy King’ was slated to step out of retirement for a trilogy fight against Chisora. However, an agreement was not made during contract negotiations and the fight did not materialize. Fury has blamed it on ‘War’ and 258 Management saying they asked for more money.
Tyson Fury wants a bare-knuckle fight with Dereck Chisora
Since the fight fell through, Fury has been poking Chisora for his ‘mistake’ on social media, trash-talking, and berating the fellow Brit. In his latest video, he challenged ‘War’ to a bare-knuckle fight:
“He wants some smoke does he? I’ll tell you what to do then Dereck, when you get back from Saudi Arabia, sucking off AJ, get yourself down to Morecambe. I’ll have you at a bare-knuckle straightner in there for f**k all. I’m sure you want some smoke you s**thouse.”
It is to be noted that Dereck Chisora is currently in Saudi Arabia supporting his friend Anthony Joshua. ‘AJ’ is set to fight Oleksandr Usyk tonight (August 20) at the Jeddah Superdome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. When Chisora returns to the UK, he could meet Tyson Fury at Morecambe Bay if he wants to fight ‘The Gypsy King’ in a bare-knuckle fight.

Tyson Fury released another string of videos via his Instagram stories mocking Dereck Chisora and Anthony Joshua’s 258 management for demanding more money. According to ‘The Gypsy King’, that is what led to the contract negotiations falling through. Here’s what he had to say in a video uploaded to Twitter:
“I see Del Boy’s at it again. He’s confused because he lost two million pounds that I offered him because stupid 258 said no they wanted three [million pounds]. Robert Davison were there to confirm and so was Frank Warren.”
“I’m sure you want some smoke, you little s***house. You were offered two million and you s*** yourself you big sausage. Carrot, you’re a carrot cruncher you little p********.”
Though Fury has stayed retired, fans have a firm belief that the reigning WBC Heavyweight Champion would make a comeback to the ring for an undisputed title fight against the winner of Usyk vs. Joshua 2.
