Chisora Fury
Chisora and Fury will meet in November.

The heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora has been rescheduled for 22 November at London's ExCel Arena.

The pair were originally scheduled to meet on 26 July in Manchester but Chisora withdrew from the contest after suffering a fractured hand in his final sparring session a week before the fight.

That decision prompted a furious response from the undefeated Fury who vowed to never step foot in the same ring as the Londoner again, but a much-anticipated rematch between the British duo will go ahead later this year.

Promoter Frank Warren said: "It's been a rollercoaster few weeks, but I'm delighted to say that the fight is definitely on with Chisora and Fury ready to clash on Saturday 22nd November at the ExCeL London. It was an extremely unfortunate set of circumstances that caused Chisora to pull out with a fractured hand.

"Despite the setbacks, they were both determined to fight each other and I believe that we could see a genuine old-fashioned ring war between them."

The contest is unofficially recognised as the final eliminator for the WBO title with the winner getting the chance to face world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at a later date.

European champion Chisora lost on points to Fury when they met in 2011.
