Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora’s summer rematch will take place on July 26 at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena.

The battle of Britain will act as a final eliminator for a shot at Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO world heavyweight title.

The pair first met in July 2011 when the unbeaten Morecambe giant was a points victor over an out of shape Chisora to lift the British and Commonwealth straps.

The Lonsdale belt vacated by David Price back in December is set to be on the line again with full details to be announced at a press conference in London on Monday lunchtime.

Fury stopped American Joey Abell in four rounds last time out in February after two aborted fights with David Haye had seen him out of the ring for the best part of 10 months.

Despite defeat to Fury first time around Chisora went on to losing efforts against both Vitali Klitschko and Haye.
