But the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' has recently challenged Chisora to a trilogy bout.

He's doubled down on his call out of 'Del Boy' by issuing a fresh challenge on social media.

The 33-year-old confirmed his return to the sport and named Isaac Lowe as his new trainer for his comeback fight against Chisora.

"I've decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight champion in history to have two trilogies – one with Deontay Wilder and a second one with Derek Chisora," said Fury in the video shared online.

"I always said I’d fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career, and here we are breaking all records again, setting precedents."

On choosing Lowe as his new trainer, the undefeated heavyweight star added: "Why I’ve chosen Isaac Lowe as my trainer is because: When I was with Peter [Fury, uncle], Isaac was there; when I was with Ben [Davison], Isaac’s always been there; and when I was with Sugarhill [Steward], Isaac’s always been there.

"He’s always given me information, he knows me better than anybody on the planet, and we’re a great team. We’ve always been together, and we’re gonna finish this out together. We’ve always worked very well together, and here we are, about to take on a massive, massive, massive event."

Fury boasts two wins over Chisora, having beaten him in 2011 and 2014.

He's eyeing a third bout later this year.
