Face to Face: Dereck Chisora vs Joseph Parker

The two heavyweights sit down to discuss their Oct. 26 fight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

With heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora (31-9, 22 KOs) set to take on former titleholder Joseph Parker (26-2, 20 KOs) on October 26th at London’s O2 Arena, both fighters have a sit down across from one another to talk about their impending battle.

Chisora would start by saying there’s nothing about Parker that he admires, saying Parker proved himself to be a chose artist once he got to the big stage against Anthony Joshua in early 2018.

Parker would soon reply that he’s been looking forward to fighting Chisora since years back when he first tried to make their fight, which couldn’t happen due to Chisora having a difficult time obtaining a visa to go to Australia.

Chisora then continued by mentioning that he’ll be thriving off all the hometown support he’ll have in the arena come fight night, while Parker says he too has developed a fan base in the area which should make for some good energy.
