Eddie Hearn predicts that Dereck Chisora’s rematch against Joseph Parker would not go the distance.
According to promoter Eddie Hearn, DERECK CHISORA’s next rematch with Joseph Parker ‘won’t go the distance.’
Chisora, a fan favorite, will rematch with the former WBO heavyweight champion on December 18 at the Manchester Arena.
The ringside judges awarded Chisora a split decision, which Hearn believes will not be necessary the second time around.
“He’s obviously calmed down a little bit and cooled down,” the Matchroom Boxing boss told Betfred.
“There was a point when he was quite violent, and you were always afraid that he might take something up and throw it.”
“He was a lot scary back then than he is now.” He used to be a bit of a brat, but he’s grown up now.
“He is a huge boxing fan.
“Not only is this person in the gym working, but he’s also among young boxers, and he spent time in Anthony Joshua’s camp before the Oleksandr Usyk fight.” It appeals to him.

“I think he’d be looking to go again even if he had seven loses in a row.”
“Joseph Parker wants to reclaim the Heavyweight title, and he’s in a good position to do so, but for Chisora, it’s all about fighting and winning.”
“I believe the crowd will make a major difference this time, despite the fact that Joseph Parker appears to be in great shape and strength.
“I believe Parker’s camp believes they can knock Chisora out this time inside the distance, but I believe it will be a thrilling battle that will not go the distance this time.”
With a major stoppage of Parker, who has yet to be finished, Hearn believes Chisora, 37, may push himself into world title contention.
“Well, you believe Chisora will get a shot at a World title?” he added. He’s a big name in the business, and you know he’ll constantly be in major fights.
“Some say he has 11 losses, but take a look at who he has lost against. In all likelihood, he defeated Robert Helenius.
“I’ve been defeated twice by Tyson Fury. In two close battles, he lost to Dillian Whyte, and he also lost to Vitali Klitschko.
“Probably the most disheartening setback was Agit Kabayel’s in Monaco, which he couldn’t overcome in such a small setting. On December 18th, the crowd will be of great assistance to him.” Chisora is ecstatic at the prospect of exacting vengeance on the Kiwi, declaring: “I know for a sure that on December 18th, we are going to fight.”
