Derek Chisora calls for a rematch against Joseph Parker on the Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury bill

Derek Chisora says Joseph Parker ‘knew he lost’, despite the New Zealander receiving a points win, and wants a rematch on the Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury bill.

The British heavyweight floored Parker in the first round, but then suffered a split decision loss to the former WBO champion at the AO Arena in Manchester.

Chisora has urged promoter Eddie Hearn to stage a second fight on the undercard for Joshua’s undisputed world title fight against Fury, which is expected to be staged in Saudi Arabia this summer.

Chisora says ‘boxing doesn’t like him’ after split decision defeat to Parker.

He wrote on Instagram: “Fight fans thank you! I appreciate all the messages and love after battling for 12 rounds with @joeboxerparker last night. It’s been amazing.

“I’m not slowing down or retiring, I’m ready to jump straight into the rematch. Dillian Whyte thought I won the fight, Andy Lee thought I won it. Even Joseph Parker knew he lost.

“Respect to Joe for stepping in the ring with me, but we need to do it again – find out the real winner. @eddiehearn make it happen – undercard of AJ-Fury in Saudi – I won’t be leaving it to judges scorecards next time!”

The 37-year-old had expressed his dismay at the verdict, with Parker receiving winning tallies of 115-113 and 116-111, while Chisora had a solitary score of 115-113.

But he was quick to rule out any thoughts of retirement.

“I was putting in more power punches, inside work, but I can’t get upset anymore,” he said.

“But you know what, I won’t let them slow me down. No way. I will not let them slow me down. I will go again.

“They want to see me retire, but I’m not retiring yet, forget that.”
