DERECK CHISORA is hoping to fight former heavyweight champion Joseph Parker before the end of the year with talks between the boxers already having begun, according to the Brit's manager David Haye.
Dereck Chisora could be facing Parker as early as October, and both fighters are keen to make the bout happen, said David Haye.
The fight was a possibility for Chisora if he beat Artur Spilzka earlier this month - a fight that only lasted two rounds.
Now, Chisora - who is also known as ‘War’ these days - and Haye have been speaking to Parker’s camp ahead of a huge end of the year clash.
Parker is a personal fan of Chisora, and the New Zealander believes the fight will be a great spectacle for boxing fans, Haye added.
“I was very, very impressed with Dereck [against Spilzka],” Haye exclusively told Express Sport. “Dereck knew what was on the line. “We’ve had this Joseph Parker fight at the end of the year as a real big carrot for us to really get him into tremendous condition, and he’s really taking that on board. “I spoke to Joseph Parker personally, when I was in Las Vegas for the [Tyson] Fury fight against Tom Schwarz, and he was really up for the fight. He likes Dereck Chisora, he’s a fan of Dereck Chisora, and he believes that Chisora’s style will gel nicely with his. “[It could happen] before the end of the year. We’re looking at as soon as October [or] November.” Parker has been looking for a big fight, and he believes that Chisora will present a real test, added former heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Haye. Both fighters are confident of winning the match by knockout.
All that’s left is to officially confirm a date, which should be relatively straight forward, Haye added. “Joseph Parker has worked with Eddie Hearn, as do I and Dereck. So politically, it’s a very easy fight to make," Haye said. “It’s all about getting the date right, getting everything neat and tidy, and it’s a fight that all the fans are really going to get their teeth into.”
