TYSON FURY makes his big return to boxing when he faces Derek Chisora THIS WEEKEND.
The Gypsy King hasn't been in the ring since his sixth-round TKO destruction of Dillian Whyte back in April at a sold out Wembley Stadium.
A whopping 94,000 fans, a British record, filled the England football team's national stadium that night to watch Fury defend his WBC heavyweight crown before announcing his retirement in the ring after.
His retirement didn't last long, however, as toward the end of the summer he called out Anthony Joshua for a massive money-spinning clash.
Talks failed to materialise, however, and now Fury is on the precipice of finalising a deal to fight Chisora, who beat Kubrat Pulev in exciting fashion in July.
Chisora has clashed with Fury twice before, though, losing the first on points before being stopped in their 2014 sequel.
And now, the two British heavyweights are set to fight for a third time in the most expensive showing on BT Sport Box Office EVER.

What has been said?
Fury: “I’m not gonna sit here and call Chisora names. I respect him. I’ve got nothing bad to say about Derek; he’s a good fighting man, and he brings his A game every time.
“[But] In my reign right now, I’m reigning supreme. I’ll beat him, and then I’ll beat the little middleweight guy [Usyk].
“He says he’s gonna knock me out, I wanna see him do it. If he does, I’ll be the first to congratulate him.”
Chisora: “I’m a black belt in crazy! The mindset is unbelievable right now, it’s crazy.
“It’s gonna be toe to toe. I have to knock him out, I’m gonna drop him, yeah.
“I’ll beat him. I’m gonna knock him out, I’m gonna stop him, 100 per cent.”
Promoter Frank Warren said: “Tyson wanted to fight in his home country again this year following his special night at Wembley Stadium in April.
"This brings us to the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a match against an old rival in Derek Chisora.

“Tyson can’t afford any slip-up in this fight as he has the much-publicised undisputed match-up with Usyk in the New Year which we’re really looking forward to."
