Frank Warren wants to stage Tyson Fury’s rematch with Dereck Chisora at West Ham’s Upton Park Stadium this summer.

The pair are both in action at London’s Copper Box Arena on February 15 and if they are victorious will meet again in what is hoped will be a final eliminator for Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO title.

Fury lifted the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles with a points victory over an out of shape Chisora back in July 2011.

The unbeaten Morecambe heavyweight takes on Argentina’s Gonzalo Omar Basile next month with Chisora set to take on former Fury foe, American Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson.

Warren announced his stadium plan at a press conference in London on Monday where the pair went head to head.
