Schedules, live streams, and undercard for Chisora vs Parker and Andy Ruiz Jr. boxing tonight
BOXING TONIGHT – Ahead of another big night of boxing, Express Sport has all the information you need, including live streams and detailed undercards.
Derek Chisora fights Joseph Parker in a heavyweight match today, but it’s far from the only fight of the night, with Andy Ruiz Jr and Katie Taylor among the other fighters on both sides of the Atlantic.
Chisora was nine pounds heavier than Parker before their fight at the AO Arena in Manchester.
Despite losing the coin toss, Chisora’s manager, David Haye, doubts Chisora will even enter the ring on Friday if he is told to enter the squared circle first before Parker.
Del Boy has a 32-10 record, while Parker, the former WBO champion from New Zealand, is 21-2 after losses to Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte in 2018.
The two heavyweight contenders will not be fighting for titles, but Katie Taylor, the Irishwoman defending her undisputed world lightweight crowns against Natasha Jones on the same card, will.
The sons of two of British boxing’s all-time greats, Chris Eubank Jr. and Campbell Hatton, will be among the competitors dealing leather Thursday evening.
In the meanwhile, Ruiz hasn’t fought since losing his rematch with Anthony Joshua in December 2019.
At the Dignity Health Sports Park in California, the Mexican-American takes on Chris Arreola in another heavyweight bout.
Ruiz, who is 33-2, is trying to avenge his only loss of the season last time out.
He takes on seasoned veteran Arreola, who is nine years his senior and has a 36-6-1 record while looking in great physical shape as he tries to climb back up the rankings.
