Tyson Fury makes 'Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)' entrance to Derek Chisora fight
| Last updated
Tyson Fury made his entrance to this evening's fight against Derek Chisora to football anthem 'Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner, and The Lightning Seeds.
The pair are going up against each other tonight (Saturday 3 December) at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, where a sold-out crowd of 60,000 are eagerly waiting to see The Gypsy King back in action after his brief hiatus.
After Chisora entered the ring, Fury walked out to a mashup that began with Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' 'Red Right Hand' (yep, the Peaky Blinders theme tune).
'Three Lions' then burst onto the speakers, as a nod to England's ongoing efforts in the World Cup in Qatar.
The song then mixed into 'Mr Brightside' by The Killers, as Fury made his way into the ring to begin the fight against Chisora - an opponent he has beaten twice previously.
Fury has already revealed he has such confidence in the England squad for their last 16 fixture that he’ll be flying out to Qatar for the quarter final after his clash against Chisora – vowing to get ‘messy again’.
While alcohol is strictly controlled in the middle eastern country, FIFA and Qatari officials had planned to sell alcohol in and around stadiums.
However, that decision was reversed just days before the tournament began, with official fan zones now the best bet for fans to enjoy a pint.
But Fury is adamant that the alcohol ban at the country’s eight World Cup stadiums would be 'no bother' for him, telling The Sun: "I’ll put it up my top. Who’s going to stop me?
"I’m not an alcoholic, I’m just a devil for the drink."
The outlet said Fury was planning a 'wild lads’ holiday' without his wife Paris and their six children.
He added: "I’m 100 percent going to get messy with the fans. I’m known for that.
"I’m going to sneak a few cases in my suitcase.
"They can have anything they want — whatever gets them going."
Fury confirmed his retirement from boxing after beating Dillian Whyte back in April, but it wasn’t long before he inevitably announced his return to the ring.
Speaking The Sun ahead of today’s fight, he said of his brief hiatus: “I was very bored. It was a short retirement.
“Paris wanted me out of the house. She’s happy I’m back.”
Fury added of his return: “My real reason is I need to keep myself well in my mind.
“When you come across someone in their early or mid-20s who is fighting because they need to get off the streets and it’s do or die, then you have a problem.
“There’s nothing that I can achieve, I’ve won every belt there is to win.
“I’ve not got any thoughts. I’ve fought for a lot of things in my life.
“I suppose fighting for sanity is every bit as good as fighting for all that s**t.”
