Derek Chisora claims Tyson Fury has put a GAGGING clause in the contract as heavyweight rivals get set for trilogy clash

FRANK WARREN was forced to deny putting a “gag” clause in Derek Chisora’s trilogy fight contract with Tyson Fury.

Chisora, beaten by Fury in 2011 and 2014, gets a third crack at his old rival on December 3 at Tottenham’s stadium.

Derek Chisora claimed he has a ‘gag’ order in his Tyson Fury fight contract

The heavyweight veteran came face to face with the Gypsy King at a pre-fight press conference.

And it was there that Chisora, 38, suggested he was restricted to what he could say while on stage.

He said: “I’m buzzing. It’s a great fight, this will be a good fight. I can’t really say much, because they put a gag on me in the contract.”

Hall of Famer Warren, once Chisora’s promoter, denied the allegation.

He told The Mirror: “Bull****, he is trying to hook us up for more money to talk at the press conference.

“I can’t be a**** with him; I am in the Tyson Fury business not the Derek Chisora business.”

Fury, 34, offered Chisora an unlikely trilogy once talks to fight Anthony Joshua, 33, collapsed.

And 35-year-old Oleksandr Usyk – who started his amateur career at middleweight – is ruled out of a unification until next year.

It left Fury giving his old pal a world title shot and an early Christmas present.

He said: “I’m not gonna sit here and call Chisora names.

“I respect him. I’ve got nothing bad to say about Derek; he’s a good fighting man, and he brings his A game every time.

“In my reign right now, I’m reigning supreme. I’ll beat him, and then I’ll beat the little middleweight guy.

“I’m gonna go home and have a good Christmas with my family, and Derek can do the same with his.”
