    Default Dereck Chisora seeking new opponent after Joseph Parker withdraws due to illness

    Dereck Chisora seeking new opponent after Joseph Parker withdraws due to illness

    Dereck Chisora is looking for a new opponent after Joseph Parker pulled out of their fight at O2 Arena due to illness.

    The pair were set to meet on October 26 on the undercard to the World Boxing Super Series super-lightweight final between Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis.

    Promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted: “Due to illness, Joseph Parker​ is out of the Dereck Chisora fight on October 26. We are working on a suitable replacement and will make a further announcement this week”.

    Chisora, 35, had complained last month about not being the main event of the London show.

    He said: “Give me main event or pull me out of the show. I’m not going to sell out the O2 for them guys to be the main event.

    “I’m being serious, you want me to sell it out to the London crowd, my London fans, then put these little guys that no one knows about on my show and mug me off.

    “I’m taking the main stage, if not I want more money.”



    Chisora has won 31 of his 40 career bouts while Parker’s two defeats both came on British soil in 2018 – against Anthony Joshua in Cardiff and Dillian Whyte in London.

    Kind of sucks for Chisora. Threating to pull out but really not and now just hoping for a suitable TBA for a relevant co main event.

    Wonder if Chisora is going to take a salary cut since he is fighting an inferior opponent as less of his fans will attend now?

    Whoever is promoting this is taking a loss.

    You are right. This surely is not ppv worthy now and should be on the regular channel.

    I'd be happy with Povetkin

    I think the short space of time will mean that no top fighter will step in at this late stage.

    Dubois or Joyce should step in as they could beat Chisora now.

    I heard Joyce's team had accepted and were waiting on Chisora to agree.

    That could make sense as Haye is the manager of both and he has always wanted that fight. This would make it a good contest to see.

    Bet Michael Hunter would take the shot. Have gloves will travel.

    If Chisora sells tickets then fair enough, hes probably made as much dough as any fighter who has never been a serious contender. Joyce would be interesting, we still dont know how good he is and Chisora is a guy you have to beat to be world class.

    He’s already been on social media to Eddie Hearn saying pick up the phone.

    Is he still Joyce’s Manager? He doesn’t seem to be hanging off his shoulder so much anymore. I’ve a feeling they might have split.
