Tyson Fury has claimed that Isaac Lowe will train him for a ‘comeback fight’ against Derek Chisora this year.
The WBC heavyweight champion reached out to 258 MGT, which manages ‘Del Boy’, in the hope that a deal can be reached for the pair to clash in a trilogy.
Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) has already beaten Chisora twice, outpointing him in 2011 and then stopping him in 2014, but has long insisted he would face his fellow countryman again.
He was last seen between the ropes at Wembley Stadium in April when he stopped Dillian Whyte, the number one-ranked contender, inside six rounds, before ‘retiring’, while Lowe (21-2-3, 6 KOs) was beaten by Nick Ball, from Liverpool, in the sixth round on the undercard as they vied for the vacant WBC Silver title.
‘The Gypsy King’ previously stated that a pot of $500million and a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, the WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO champion, would be the only thing to tempt him to lace up the gloves again – unless a fight against Anthony Joshua at Wembley materialises.
Fury posted a video on Twitter which came shortly after he issued a demand to ‘Del Boy’ to get his team to contact and “iron out” the deal between the pair to met for the third time:
“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 Derek Chisora at the end of my career, and here we are breaking all records again, setting precedents. 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.”

Lowe has yet to reveal his plans after his defeat at the hands of the aforementioned Ball in terms of returning to the ring himself, but he waded in on the news about ‘taking over’ as Fury’s coach for the fight with Chisora.
“I’m looking forward to it, it’s a new challenge for me. Listen, I’ve been with you [Fury] all your career and I think I can put something new together.
“So I’m looking forward to it and it’s a tough task but something to look forward to, to go forward.”
