Parker Manager: Chisora Must Stop Running To Lose To Usyk

David Higgins, manager of former heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, has frowned at Derek Chisora's ongoing pursuit of former undisputed cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Parker and Chisora were scheduled to fight a few weeks ago, but the contest got called off after Parker withdrew with illness which came from a suspected spider bite.

Chisora instead face Olympic bronze medal winner David Price - which Chisora winning the fight by stoppage.


But Chisora has not been talking about Parker as of late. The British veteran is trying to chase down Usyk.

Higgins believes Chisora's manager, David Haye, is steering him in another direction.

"Don't play games with Chisora's head, don't play games for two years with the British public, don't play games with Eddie Hearn, who has always done right by everyone. Stick to your word both of you and give the fans what they want," Higgins told Sky Sports.

"Stop running away, trying to take another option because you think there might be a little bit more money. Chisora would probably lose to Usyk. He might make a little bit more money, but that's like a retirement fight. When you take a fight you know you're going to lose, for a bit more money, you're basically saying 'I'm retiring.'

"My message is - if Chisora and Haye choose to go with Usyk, they are putting up a white flag. Chisora is saying 'I'm finished with boxing and I just want to take the money.' "But if Chisora is serious, he'll deliver what he's been crowing about. He'll fight Parker. He says he can beat Parker, then he can fight Usyk anyway.

"I think the fans are smart enough to see through Haye's manoeuvring, his rhetoric, his Machiavellian posturing, and I feel a bit sorry for Eddie Hearn in all of this, because he's putting on the big shows that people want to see."

You'd think it was Chisora who pulled out of the fight

As much as I have never been Chisora's fan (nor Parker's) I'd like to see them both vs Usyk. They are the right size for him. Usyk is more talented than both, but still a question mark at heavyweight.
