This fight will face an experienced boxer (Chisora), against whom he is probably in the best stage of his career (Parker). As can be seen, there is no noticeable physical advantage between the boxers, who in turn maintain a similar knockout percentage in their careers as professionals.

Dereck Chisora comes from losing 2 of his last 5 fights at the hands of Joseph Parker himself and the champion Oleksandr Usyk, but his career is marked by facing the best fighters in the division such as Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte, Kubrat Pulev and several more. For his part, Joseph Parker arrives with a streak of 5 consecutive victories, but his resume is not far behind, because he also has the privilege of saying that he has stepped into the ring to face great boxers such as Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Carlos Takam and Andy Ruiz.

Styles

Dereck Chisora is a boxer who loves war, and hence that is his pseudonym, he has great power in his hands, especially on the right, and he has a very marked style where he likes to combine blows to the body with blows to the face. He tends to exert pressure on his opponent almost throughout the fight by throwing his body forward and throwing one or two blows with his left hand to the body and surprisingly taking a right hand to the face. Once the distance closes, Chisora throws a good amount of circular punches that he takes from anywhere with great power. However, he is a boxer who, due to his style and age, has a reduced stamina that, added to his not so marked defensive qualities, means that as the fights progress, he receives more and more blows and lowers the volume of those he throws.

Joseph Parker is a fairly well-rounded boxer who prefers to keep fights at a distance by skillfully handling his jab and throwing strong straight right hands. He tends to go in and punch opponents and quickly get out of range to avoid the counter. Arguably Parker’s biggest flaw is abusing of keep his guard down, which on several occasions in his career has taken its toll when his rivals know how to shorten the gap and drown him with a good volume of blows.

Without a doubt we will see a fight between two boxers with great strength in their fists, but who in turn have great assimilation and endurance.

Prediction

In royal boxing news we believe that the fight will be very similar to the first confrontation between these fighters (see the video of the best moments here). This implies that Chisora ​​will seek from the first round to put pressure on Parker and throw punches with a lot of power, while Parker will use his jab more than ever and will keep Chisora ​​at a distance, making him miss a good amount of punches and tire him out. From the second half of the fight Chisora ​​will be tired enough for Parker to pick up the pace of the fight and start taking a good amount of punches. We consider Parker to have an advantage in that he can learn and correct more details after the first match, as his age and style allow it, while Chisora ​​will not change his strategy at all.

Although Chisora’s power blows have a great chance of knocking Parker out, we consider that the latter’s technique and assimilation of blows will prevail, in this way we see a new victory for Joseph Parker on the cards, however it is quite probable that manages to knock out Chisora.
