Chisora vows to ‘smoke’ Parker

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Lon­don: -Stuff

Out­spo­ken Bri­tish heavy­weight Dereck Chisora has brushed off trou­bles in his camp, vow­ing to “smoke” Joseph Parker in their Lon­don fight.

The two clash at the O2 Arena on Oc­to­ber 26 and Chisora be­lieves the bout could sur­pass his 2016 thriller with Dil­lian Whyte which ended in a split de­ci­sion to Whyte. “I’m go­ing to smoke that guy,” Chisora said of for­mer WBO cham­pion Parker when asked by IFL TV.

“This fight is go­ing to be buzzing. I’m go­ing to go crazy, man. “If you watched me and Dil­lian in the first fight, you think that was a good fight, watch me and Parker. “I am ready to go. I am ready to die in that ring. I want to go to town.” Chisora was in­ter­viewed re­lax­ing in a limou­sine ahead of a Lon­don press con­fer­ence where he de­liv­ered a tirade of abuse at his clash with Parker be­ing an un­der­card fight to the world ti­tle bout be­tween su­per-lightweigh­ts Josh Tay­lor and Regis Pro­grais, in the fi­nal of the World Box­ing Su­per Se­ries. An an­gry Chisora threat­ened to pull out of the Parker fight un­less it was given the ap­pro­pri­ate main event sta­tus.

He later con­fessed not all was run­ning smoothly in his train­ing camp, in­clud­ing a split with his trainer David Cold­well who has over­seen two vic­to­ries since tak­ing charge of the 35-year Chisora ear­lier this year.

That de­vel­op­ment will cer­tainly be noted by Parker who is bury­ing him­self into train­ing in Las Vegas with his long-term coach Kevin Barry.
