World heavyweight champion boxer, Tyson Fury, says he will return to the ring despite announcing his retirement earlier this year.

Tyson, who lives in Morecambe, has today (August 9) announced that he is hoping to take on Derek Chisora in a trilogy fight.

He has also appointed featherweight champ Isaac Lowe as his new coach.

Speaking to his 5.7 million Instagram followers, the 33-year-old posted a video clip explaining the reasons for his return.

In the clip he said: “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.

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

He also went on to explain why he has chosen Isaac as his coach.

He said: “When I was with Peter, Isaac was there. When I was with Ben, Isaac’s always been there. When I was with Sugar Hill Steward. Isaac has always been there.

“He has always given me information… and we're a great team.

“We’ve always been together and we're going to finish this together.”

Isaac said: “I am looking forward to it, it’s a new challenge for me.

“I have been with you your whole career... It’s a tough task but something to look forward to.”

Tyson has already beaten Chisora twice in his career, once in 2011 and again in 2014.

Back in April, Tyson said he would retired and wind down in Morecambe after defeating Dillian Whyte to retain his WBC title.

Speaking to Carl Frampton for BT Sport, he said: He said: “I’ve made more money than I can spend in a million lifetimes… I’ve been in this game 14 years now and I’ve been punched to pieces.

“The only thing I can gain is money, so after this fight I’ll have earned over £100million. If I can spend that, I don’t deserve any more, do I?”

However, Chisora is yet to accept or reject the fight offer – so watch this space.
