STREAM LINKS >>> Joseph Parker vs Derek Chisora free stream online Heavyweight Title Full HD
Joseph has great skills and can still really develop but needs more time under Andy Lee for that to emerge. But he will be reinvigorated. He will have to overcome some adversity.
Chisora will have seen Dillian Whyte rough him up in their fight – but no one should ignore the effect the headbutt had on Parker in that one. Joe can win by knockout, but will have to work hard to create the opportunity for a clean shot.
Joseph has been too predictable of late – he’s known for great hand speed, but I’d like to see him fighting more on the inside. He needs to back himself and show some excitement. There’s a lot for him to do get back in favour, but he’s certainly capable of doing it. I’d love to see him get a knockout but I’ll pick him to win on points.
It’s a very difficult fight to predict, with Parker over in England and changing trainers. But Chisora is a real handful, a brawler, and Parker doesn’t like that sort of opponent. Parker doesn’t push himself hard enough – he doesn’t even like the heavy bags in training. But maybe he will be motivated to prove the doubters wrong.
Chisora always comes out like a bull at a gate, flying with his right hand, trying to put his opponent away early. Then he slows down. Parker will maintain his distance, use the fast jab, accumulate points and outlast him. Putting Chisora away won’t be the objective.
He will be remembered as a cult hero of British boxing but the possibility still exists for something more if he can relaunch himself against Joseph Parker on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
But time is of the essence – Chisora is 37 now, and Parker needs a statement win to resurrect his own hopes. This is a heavyweight fight that will be won and lost when the going gets tough, and when the depths of their desires are tested.
