The Rematch: Parker vs Chisora II
Former world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker will have a chance to avenge one of his two professional losses when he takes on Dereck Chisora in a rematch for the WBO World Heavyweight Championship this Saturday, May 1.
The two men first met back in 2016, with Chisora winning by unanimous decision. Parker went on to become WBO champion later that year, and has defended his title twice, most recently against Dillian Whyte last summer.
Chisora has fought three times since his victory over Parker, losing to Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk but bouncing back with a win over David Price last October.
The winner of this highly anticipated rematch will take a big step closer to a possible world title fight against either Joshua or Tyson Fury.
The Key Players
The key players in the Parker vs Chisora rematch are of course the two boxers themselves. Parker is the current WBO world heavyweight champion, and Chisora is a former European and British heavyweight champion.
Both men are experienced boxers, with Parker having a professional record of 24-0 (18 KOs) and Chisora having a professional record of 29-8 (21 KOs).
The Parker vs Chisora rematch is taking place on October 26th at the O2 Arena in London, England.
The original fight, which took place in 2016, was for the vacant WBO International and WBO Oriental Heavyweight titles. The fight was a hard-fought contest with Parker losing the first two rounds on all three judges’ scorecards before coming back to win by unanimous decision, with the judges’ scores reading 115-113, 115-113 and 114-114.
This time around, Parker will be defending his WBO Heavyweight title against Chisora, who is ranked number four by the WBO. The winner of this bout will be in line for a potential world title shot later this year.
On October 26, Parker and Chisora will meet for the second time, with both men looking to stake their claim as one of the best heavyweight boxers in the world.
The first fight between these two men was an absolute classic, with Parker just edging out Chisora on points after 12 rounds.
Both men have since gone on to claim world titles, with Parker beating Andy Ruiz Jr to become the WBO heavyweight champion, and Chisora becoming the WBA interim heavyweight champion after beating David Price.
This second fight is sure to be just as exciting as the first, and whoever comes out on top will surely be in line for a shot at one of the other world champions.
It was a close fight, but in the end, Parker retained his WBO heavyweight world championship belt with a unanimous points decision victory over Chisora.
The judges scored it 118-110, 118-110, and 119-109 in Parker’s favour.
In the post-fight press conference, Parker admitted that he had expected a tougher fight than he got.
“I’m just glad to get the win and get the rematch out of the way,” said Parker. “I thought it would be a lot tougher than what it was.”
“Chisora is a tough fighter, he’s got a lot of heart and he gave me a good fight.”
Chisora said he had been “outboxed” by Parker and conceded that his opponent deserved to win.
“He was better on the night,” said Chisora. “I give him credit, he beat me fair and square.”
It’s been two years since Parker and Chisora met in their first world championship boxing fight, which Parker won by a unanimous points decision.
Both men have had mixed fortunes since then, with Parker losing his WBO title to Joshua in 2018, while Chisora has won four of his five fights, including a shock win against Dillian Whyte last December.
The bookmakers have Parker as the clear favourite to win this rematch, but Chisora will no doubt be hoping to use his experience and determination to cause an upset.
The winner of this fight will move closer to a world title shot, so there is everything to play for.
When Parker first fought Chisora in October 2016, the New Zealander was looking to cement his place as one of the best heavyweight boxers in the world. He had already won the WBO title, and a victory over Chisora would have put him in a strong position to challenge for more titles.
However, Chisora put up a valiant effort and Parker was only able to win by majority decision. The fight was close enough that many people thought it deserved a rematch, and that is exactly what we are going to get.
This time around, Parker is looking to show that he is truly one of the best heavyweights in the world. He knows that he has what it takes to beat Chisora, and he will be looking to make a statement in this fight. On the other hand, Chisora will be looking to prove that he can hang with the best in the world, and that he deserves another shot at a world title.
This is going to be an exciting fight between two evenly matched boxers. It has all the makings of a classic heavyweight bout, and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top.
While Chisora has his sights set on a world title, Parker is looking to prove that he is still one of the best heavyweight boxers in the world. The two will meet again in a rematch of their 2012 fight, which Parker won by unanimous decision.
