Tyson Fury has not yet decided to quit boxing and has hired a new trainer to prepare him for his return fight against Derek Chisora. Fury beat Dillian Whyte back in April. It was a one-sided battle.
Fury, the undefeated champion of the world, announced his retirement from boxing. Did anyone believe that was it for Fury? Fury has already defeated Chisora twice during his boxing career, and this is a fight that is not needed.

On Tuesday, Fury posted on Twitter that he aimed to fight Chisora again with Isaac Lowe as his new trainer. “Breaking news: #DerekWarChisora’s new trainer has been selected to fight in the comeback bout with @isaaclowe6.”
Andy, Fury’s cameraman, asked Fury why he returned to boxing and selected Lowe as his trainer. Fury replied, “I decided I would return to boxing because it is possible to be the first heavyweight champion to have two trilogies, one with Deontay Wilder and one with Derek Chisora.” I guess Fury has never heard of Muhammad Ali? He fought trilogies with Norton and Frazier! But then again, Fury lives in his own little world.
“I always said I would fight Derek Chisora as my last fight. We are now breaking records and setting precedents. No, Tyson, you really aren’t; the only thing you will be doing is lining your own pockets. The only good thing that would come of this rematch would be Chisora would get to cash out with a big payday, which he no doubt deserves.
“Why I chose Isaac Lowe to be my trainer is because while I was training with Peter [Fury], Isaac was also there. While I was training with Ben [Davison], Isaac wasn’t there. Isaac was always there when I was with Sugar Hill.
“He gives me information, knows me better than anyone on the planet, and it’s a great team. We have always been close and will finish this together. We have always worked well together, and we’re about to tackle a huge, massive event. That’s what Tyson Fury thinks, this is not a massive event by any means.
The soon-to-be 34-year-old Englishman now has 32 wins, 23 knockout wins and one draw from 33 professional boxing fights.
Fury, a 6’9″ boxer, has an 85-inch reach. Fury began his career in December 2008.
Importantly, ESPN has set the December date for the fight against Derek Chisora at Principality Stadium, Cardiff, Wales. The official date has yet to be announced. If we get lucky it will never be announced!
