FORMER heavyweight champion Tyson Fury dropped in on Dereck Chisora’s weigh in today in Monte Carlo.

Fury has fought Chisora twice before, for the British title and on his route to securing his famous showdown with Wladimir Klitschko. Chisora is fighting on a Matchroom bill in Monaco and this trip is therefore the perfect opportunity for Fury to catch up with promoter Eddie Hearn, who also represents the current IBF and WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Fury has been an active presence on social media since Anthony Joshua’s latest world title defence and the appealing prospect of him returning to boxing. Fury is awaiting a UKAD hearing for failing a drug test. He does not have licence to box yet.
