Derek Chisora aims to rebound against Joseph Parker this weekend in an exciting fight in the heavyweight division.
Chisora lacked variety in his last point defeat to Oleksandr Ossek, while Parker has scored four straight wins since losing streak to Anthony Joshua and Dilian White.
The New Zealander was soon pushed out the last time by Junior Fa, and any hopes of regaining a copy of the World Heavyweight Championship depend on a clear win over his British rival here.
Parker is ranked inside the top eight with WBO, WBA and IBF, while Chisora is ranked 15th in the latest WBC rankings.
It promises to be an intriguing secret card with Katie Taylor defending her world titles against Natasha Jonas, while Chris Yubank Jr. is back in action, world light-heavy champion Dmitry Bevol and Campbell Hatton’s journey continues.

Chisora on Parker
“We’ve been here before, in 2019 I traveled to Vegas to shoot Face to Face with Parker, I called Haye as soon as I left and told him, ‘This guy isn’t going into the ring with Chisora.”
“Now, the second time around, hopefully he’ll fight, look forward to fighting, can’t wait to get back in the ring! I love fighting, that’s what I love the most. Good luck to Joseph Parker and his new team. We’ll see you in the war on May 1st.”Street!
Parker on Chisora
Parker said, “I’m excited to start this new chapter in my career with a new coach and some new ideas.” “It’s settled at the property and Andy and I are on good terms. Cissura and I have an unfinished business and in the ring, one of us will get the job done.”
“I am well aware that a win on British soil and on international television will put me in center stage when a loss will be catastrophic. I’m over the challenge. Bring him to Delboy.”
