Two heavyweight contenders look for a way back into the world title picture.
Dereck Chisora and Joseph Parker very nearly fought a couple of years ago. However it was a spider bite in his native New Zealand that left Parker feeling so unwell he was forced to withdraw from the bout.
Now, with both men looking to earn one final heavyweight title shot, they will look to boost their chances at the other’s expense.
Parker fought as recently as late February, with a scrappy win over compatriot Junior Fa in Auckland. Chisora, meanwhile, looked better than he had in years vs. Oleksandr Usyk on Halloween night, but came up short against the unbeaten newcomer to the maximum weight division.
An intriguing card also features Katie Taylor defending her undisputed women’s lightweight title against Natasha Jonas in a rematch of the London 2012 Olympic tournament as two of the female fight game’s most recognisable figures could well steal the show, based on recent performances.
Here is everything you need to know for Chisora vs. Parker.
