Dereck Chisora is eyeing a rematch with Tyson Fury.

The undefeated Morecambe man beat former world title challenger “Del Boy” for the British and Commonwealth titles at Wembley Arena back in July 2011.

And after seeing a potential clash with American Deontay Wilder fall through with the knockout artist unable to travel to London having been charged with domestic assault, Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren has made an offer to Fury.

The 6ft 9in giant won a unanimous decision against an out of shape Chisora in their first meeting.

But round two looks unlikely to happen with purse bids due on Tuesday for 24-year-old Fury’s final IBF eliminator with Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.

The winner of the fight, which is also likely be for the European Boxing Union heavyweight strap, would face the victor of current holder Wladimir Klitschko’s superfight with Alexander Povetkin.

Warren has also made offers to Manuel Charr, who had been due to face David Haye on June 29 before the former WBA champion picked up a hand injury, and Puerto Rican Fres Oquendo.

The Chisora-headlined Wembley Arena show has been moved from June 15 to July 20.

The Finchley fighter said: “I just want to fight again and I’m hungry for another world title opportunity.

“I’m confident that I have all the tools to beat Wilder and it’s a shame I can’t show it this time, but sooner or later we will clash and I will knock him out.

“I’m concentrating on my next fight and whoever is in front of me on July 20 is going to take a beating.”
