Fury in frame for Chisora bout

DERECK CHISORA will headline a rearranged show at Wembley Arena in July and could be set for a rematch with Tyson Fury.

The Londoner had been set to face Deontay Wilder on June 15 but the American is the subject of criminal allegations and is unable to travel, meaning Chisora's night has been pushed back by five weeks.

In a statement from promoter Frank Warren's company, it was said offers had been made to the outspoken Fury, Fres Oquendo and Manuel Charr, the Lebanon-born puncher who had been booked in to face David Haye on June 29 until Haye withdrew. Chisora lost to Fury, the undefeated but unpredictable 24-year-old, on a unanimous decision in 2011.
