Parker Just Wants To Punch Chisora’s Face
On Monday, Dereck Chisora in no uncertain terms called attention to the fact that he and Joseph Parker should headline on October 26th.
The O2 Arena card is currently slated to have Chisora and Parker in the co-main event, while super-lightweights Regis Prograis and Josh Taylor will be in the finals of the World Boxing Super Series.
When asked if his client and Chisora should go on last, Parker’s manager David Higgins sided with the former world title challenger.
“Yeah I agree,” Higgins told Sky Sports. “Parker-Chisora or Chisora-Parker as the Brits like to call it is a bigger attraction commercially, in terms of tickets sold at The O2 and viewing figures. It depends on how you are making the decision.”
“Technically it [Prograis vs Taylor] is more elite in terms of titles, but in terms of fan favorites and exciting boxing matches, Parker-Chisora is the bigger event, so I agree with Chisora.”
“That being said, our side don’t really care as much,” Higgins continued. “Joseph has never been one to have ego issues or worry about stuff like that. He knows what the job is and it will be to punch Chisora in the face, and shut him up.”
