Whyte vs Chisora: Joseph Parker’s immediate future rests on outcome

Adjust Comment Print

According to UK Metro report citing FightHype, the Nigerian-born pugilist, who now holds three of the four major championships belts-IBF, WBA, and WBO titles was booed by fans at London's 02 Arena, moments after Dillian Whyte knocked out Dereck Chisora that he was looking forward to face either Wilder or Fury not Whyte.

Two years after narrowly outpointing his opponent, Whyte demonstrated his improvement and furthered Chisora's decline by leaving him unconscious for a worryingly long time at London's 02 Arena.

But Hearn admitted that time is running out to get any deal over the line, which could see Dillian Whyte stepping up to take on his compatriot in April. "I knocked him clean out when we fought (in 2015), but I said let's forget that because we have both improved so let's prove who is the better fighter now", Joshua added. "Because I showed him some respect", said a clearly-annoyed Joshua. He kept making the same mistake.

Whyte, aka The Body Snatcher, wants a rematch with world champion Anthony Joshua for his next fight, issuing a nasty callout after beating Chisora. "If there's anyone that deserves a shot, if it isn't them it's you". Him and "AJ" is a brilliant fight. Whoever wants it can get it.

Fury and Wilder fought an all-time classic at the Staples Center in Los Angeles earlier this month with talks already underway for a rematch according to Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel.

"I heard they were booing the s*** out of Joshua", the undefeated American said. "They can train for it as much as they want".

"We've done almost 23 rounds and you can't do that with someone and not respect them".

'I think he's about 80% likely to fight at Wembley on April 13'.

Parker's team have a good relationship with Chisora's manager David Haye.

Chisora was laid out by a huge left hook but thankfully made it back to his dressing room, where he was visited by Whyte shortly after the fight.
