Listen Up- No Asked For Fury-Chisora III
It’s another pretty light boxing weekend but there are couple of fights to preview and plenty of news of the week, mainly the official announcement of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s third fight with Dereck Chisora.
Here is what’s on the latest “Big Fight Weekend Preview” Podcast (in order):
Discussion of the disappointment that Fury will fight Chisora for the third time in an entirely pointless and unnecessary fight nobody has every asked for. I get a bit cranky.
Fury will defend the title against good pal and familiar foe Chisora on Dec. 3 outdoors in likely wintry conditions at London’s 65,000-seat Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. That’s where they met for the news conference Thursday along with Fury co-promoters Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank chairman Bob Arum.
The Reasons We Don’t Need This Third Fight
In 2011, Fury handed Chisora his first loss, routing him by unanimous decision to take his British and Commonwealth titles via scores of 118-111, 117-112 and 117-112. In a 2014 rematch, Fury took Chisora’s European title and won the vacant British title when he retired on the stool after the 10th round.
Fury, who is coming off a one-sided sixth-round knockout of interim titlist and mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte on April 23 in a fight that drew a record 94,000 to Wembley Stadium in London in what Fury said would be his retirement fight, hopes to fight unified three-belt titleholder Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed crown in the spring.
The Chisora trilogy fight will stream on ESPN+ in the Untied States and air on BT Sport Box Office pay-per-view in the United Kingdom.

We also discuss the change in plans on which mandatory unified middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin has been ordered to make next.
Plus, the announcement that with Demetrius Andrade pulling out on Zach Parker for the second time, he will face John Ryder for an interim super middleweight title.
I’m lamenting all of the name fighters who will have just one fight in 2022 and the lack of a major fight, at least at this point, in the fourth quarter of the year.
There’s Action Friday and Saturday Nights
