Derek Chisora vs Joseph Parker LIVE: Follow all the action from Manchester as the heavyweight veteran takes on the former world… with their last-minute coin toss drama avoided following a phone call from the Brit’s MOTHER
It almost fell through at the final hurdle over a coin toss, but Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker will meet in the ring in a heavyweight battle tonight, with the stakes high for both men.
Chisora, 37, is looking to bounce back from his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk last time out and keep his Indian summer going, having propelled up the rankings with the support of former rival David Haye.
DelBoy will be under no illusions with the task at hand in Manchester, though, with Parker eager for another tilt at the heavyweight title having lost his WBO belt to Anthony Joshua in 2018.
The New Zealander has only two losses on his professional record – to AJ and Dillian Whyte – and will look to make it five wins on the trot after he is done with the bulldozing Chisora this evening.
