Dereck Chisora’s next opponent should be confirmed in “three or four days” after Joseph Parker’s withdrawal, according to David Haye.
New Zealand heavyweight Parker pulled out of his scheduled bout with Chisora on Wednesday due to an unspecified illness.
They were due to meet at London’s O2 Arena on the undercard of Josh Taylor-Regis Prograis on October 26 as the pair look to climb up the rankings in the division.
However, Chisora has been left “very upset” and is now seeking a new opponent. Haye, Chisora’s manager, is confident they will be able to draft someone in over the next “three to four days” and revealed they already have a verbal agreement in place.
Asked when a replacement is likely to be named, Haye said: “Hopefully within the next three or four days. “Dereck was very, very upset.
“We may have somebody already who has agreed it, but there’s one thing agreeing it over the phone, there’s another agreeing it when the contract is sent to you.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
