Dereck Chisora will fight Tyson Fury on July 26 at the Manchester Arena, it has been confirmed.

Promoter Frank Warren announced the news on talkSPORT on Monday morning before taking to Twitter to confirm.

The winner of the bout between Britain's leading heavyweights should secure a shot at WBO, IBF and WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko.

The pair have met before when, in July 2011, Fury beat Chisora on a points decision that earned Fury the British and Commonwealth titles.
