Boxing: Chisora ​​vs Parker

Chisora ​​vs Parker



In what may be his last chance to attack again at the top, Dereck Chisora ​​challenges New Zealand's ex-WBO champion Joseph Parker next Saturday at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.  The winner of the duel could get a bigger title shot in the near future.  DAZN will broadcast the event live from 7:00 p.m.!

Chisora ​​vs. Parker


Dereck “War” Chisora ​​(32-10-0, 23 K.o.) is not to be beaten even at the age of 37.  The former “Del Boy” and crowd favorite, who has been performing under the name “War” since the end of 2018, marches like a steamroller from one battle to the next.  The 117 kilo colossus, who was born in Zimbabwe, can never be thrown off course by mostly narrow defeats against the heavyweight elite and remains extremely stable and in top shape in his old age in the ring.

After Chisora ​​suffered a narrow but clear point defeat against ex-cruiser dominator Oleksandr Usyk (18-0-0, 13 Ko) in his last fight at the end of October last year, it could now be the very last chance for him to win  international spotlight.  The two-time opponent of Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte has now hired start coach Buddy McGirt from the USA as a new head coach.  McGirt, who trained Arturo Gatti Hasim Rahman, Lamon Brewster and most recently Sergey Kovalev, was himself IBF super light champion and WBC welterweight champion in the 80s and 90s.

The old-school trainer praises the attitude of his new protégé: “Dereck is still inquisitive and not stuck like many of his colleagues.  Although he already has a long career behind him, he wants to keep learning and developing. "  Joseph Parker (28-2-0, 21 K.o.) also recently had a change of coach.  After the New Zealand folk hero separated from his long-time coach Kevin Barry after his pathetic victory on points in February over compatriot Junior Fa, the 29-year-old is now under the wing of Andy Lee.

The ex-WBO champ in the super middle and cousin of Tyson Fury, wants to bring Parker back to the top and to another world title.  With a victory over “War” Chisora, the first step should be initiated.  The “Chisora ​​vs. Parker” schedule was planned for October 2019 as such.  At the time, however, the clash fell through when Parker's team announced several weeks before the scheduled appointment that their protégé was suffering from the aftermath of a spider bite.

To this day, Chisora ​​considers this excuse to be a "ridiculous excuse".  Chisora: “Parker's a coward.  We still have one bill open.  I think he keeps running away in battle, but I'll just pound him on.  This fight will be hell for me and for him.  I'll beat him up with the fear of God and win in the end.  I come to bring pain and war. "

Joseph Parker is also full of anticipation for the upcoming heavyweight gladiator clash: “I have settled in very well in England.  Andy and I get on really well and make an ideal team.  I am aware that a victory on British soil and on worldwide TV will put me in pole position for another World Cup fight, while a defeat would be catastrophic for my future career.  I am more than ready for the challenge and will climb out of the ring on May 1st as the winner.  Bring it on Del Boy!
