Promoter Eddie Hearn Wednesday (10/2/2019) morning announced the cancellation of the Dereck Chisora ​​versus Joseph Parker duel planned to be held at the O2 Arena, London, late this October. Hearn called Parker to resign because of illness.

In the official Twitter account with a blue check (@ EddieHearn), the Managing Director of Matchroom Sport Ltd announced that Parker was withdrawing from the fight because of illness. Not explained what pain experienced by the former WBO heavyweight champion.

“Because of illness, Joseph Parker canceled his fight with Derek Chisora ​​on October 26,” Hearn chirped.

“We are working to find a suitable replacement and will make further announcements this week.”


However, before Chisora ​​had revealed about his status in the fight against Parker at The O2 Arena. The Chisora ​​vs Parker duel will be juxtaposed with the duel of Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis which became the other main battle in the light welterweight class.

Speaking at a press conference last month, the British boxer nicknamed Del Boy War demanded more payment for the fight if it was not made into the main duel.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Chisora ​​threatened to cancel his appearance if his hopes were ignored.

“Who is the main event of this fight?” Chisora ​​asked Hearn. “I didn’t sell O2 to the main event for other boxers.”

“You want to put these people, and nobody knows about them, in my show, and try to fool me.”

“It doesn’t matter about the Muhammad Ali trophy (the trophy contested by Taylor vs. Prograis). If I’m not placed in the main event, I want more money or I pull out of the show.”

“Boxing is now developing in the heavyweight.”
