    I agree. There are probably lots of things to dislike about Chisora but telling the truth at a SKY/Matchroom press conference should be a reason to like him, if anything.

    0-1 I think.
    But Parker is 3-1 is world title fights.
    NONE of these guys are PPV-worthy stars but it's obvious Chisora and Parker are bigger names than Josh Taylor !

    Not in my world mate. I have been looking forward to the showdown with Prograis and Taylor since the tournie was announced and if there was 6 bally dancers slapping each other on the undercard I'd still be buying it for The main event. Del boy should start winning the fights that counts if he wants to headline but he's way too old for that now and his time has long passed.

    Both fights deserve to headline but neither deserves to be PPV.

    I think Parker's a legit top level heavyweight and might even be champion again a few fights down the road. I'd have him in the top 6 or 7 right now, at least.

    It's Hearn trying to throw 2 good fights on the same card and calling it a PPV.
    This whole "stacked card" = PPV philosophy is one of the worst things to happen to British boxing.
    A PPV should be a GREAT main event, a big fight, and the undercard shouldn't even be relevant. Ruiz-Joshua 2 is a legit PPV, it shouldn't matter what the undercard is.

    Taylor-Prograis should be ordinary SKY SPORTS Saturday night fight.
    Same with Parker-Chisora. Put them on a couple of weeks apart.

    Instead Hearn's made everyone into a "PPV fighter" and he's wondering why some of them are getting upset.
    The UK boxing/sports fans are mugs if they are paying PPV on top of SKY SPORTS subscription for any half-decent fight and buying into this "well, the card is pretty good" nonsense.

    This is probably being very cynical but I reckon Hearn himself would prefer Chisora v Parker to be the headline fight. It simply makes more money if the product is marketed with Chisora v Parker has the main event. I don’t agree with that, but facts are that the casual market recognise both Chisora and Parker more than Prograis v Taylor.

    I seriously doubt that Hearn will be disappointed in Dereck’s reaction. I’m starting to think that he might be the puppet master on this one. Funny how he immediately put it to Kalle when Chisora was kicking off. All Hearn and Sky care about are the ppv figures.

    Chisora in my eyes is fringe world level and has lost every time he gets just over that level so he should be happy to take his chance and fight a respectable challenger and get himself to the point where there is no doubt he is a main headliner. I would have loved it if Hearn ( dint like him btw ) turned round and said ok your off the show, bye bye!

    Hope Parker smashes him to bits and retires him for good so we don’t have to listen to his BS or that smiling snake sitting next to him again!

    The whole thing has been spun to perfection tbh and i dare say everyone will be rubbing their hands with how it's turned out.Both fights need each other and everyone will do well.

    Agreed. It’s fight week for Fury and nobody even knew it was happening. Look at the forum and more people are talking about Del Boy.

    Agreed. It's just a verbal version of throwing tables. I do hope Del Boy does a number on sponsored by Dulux Parker mind.

    I reckon Parker will beat Chisora quite clearly so Chisora deserves a payday for getting in there.
    Having said that, Parker did less than I expected against Joshua and against Whyte, and Chisora tends to exceed expectations in the last few years, so who knows ....

    Not to mention that last literal clown show he was in. There's a myth around Parker that he's some sort of dangerous puncher. He's not. He's very ring fit and has good handspeed. That's pretty much it.
