British heavyweight athlete Derek Chisora denied information about a fight with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
“I will not fight [with Fury]. These are all rumours. I didn't get any contracts," said Derek.
For Fury and Chisora, this could be the third face-to-face confrontation in their careers. Before that, the Gypsy King defeated Derek twice - in 2011 and 2014.
Promoter Eddie Hearn claimed that Chisora had already received a contract to fight Fury. The fight was supposed to take place on December 3.
Tyson was supposed to fight with the British Anthony Joshua, but the parties were unable to agree on terms and sign a contract for the fight. Fury's side claims that AJ's promoter, Eddie Hearn, is to blame for the collapse of the match.
Tyson's father, John Fury, said that his son is considering three candidates to replace Joshua: Filip Hrgovic, Andy Ruiz, and Luis Ortiz.
In the last fight, Chisora defeated Kubrat Pulev and won the vacant WBA International belt. The title of full-fledged WBA champion belongs to Oleksandr Usyk.
