Joseph Parker’s team have confirmed that the New Zealand heavyweight would be willing to take on Dereck Chisora in the UK this year. The Kiwi has fought in the UK on three occasions so far but he looks set to return in the coming months.
Parker ended 2018 with a knockout win over Alexander Flores in Christchurch as he tries to regain his confidence after losing his WBO world title to Anthony Joshua.
He lost to Dillian Whyte in his last fight in England but the 27-year-old believes a win over Chisora puts him back in the world title frame.
His promoter David Higgins told Sky Sports: “Like most top heavyweights, Joseph will be willing to fight anyone. I see Eddie Hearn mentioning Chisora publicly.
“If the deal was right, then sure enough, Joseph certainly will not back away from anyone. It will be interesting to see how that pans out. “There’s been one email from Eddie. No detailed discussion whatsoever. As I say, Joseph would be willing to step in with anyone, provided it’s the right terms. “I’m hoping to speak to Eddie this week.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
