Parker Vows To Be Prepared For Both Calm and Crazy Chisora

Joseph Parker (26-2) will travel to the United Kingdom for the 4th time in October.  On the 26th he will face Dereck Chisora (31-9) at the O2 Arena in London. In the main event of the World Boxing Super Series, Regis Prograis will take on Josh Taylor in a unification bout.

The 35-year-old Chisora has had plenty of ups and downs in his career.  On some occasions he has looked like one of the world's top heavyweights and on other occasions he hasn't looked up to par.

His opponent Joseph Parker said that he will be ready for whichever version of Chisora steps in the ring next month.

"You never know who is going to turn up. He is either really really good or not as good. He is either crazy or calm. You never know who is going to turn up so we are not sure what to expect. We are going to go over there and be prepared for whatever he brings," Parker explained.

Prior to his December win over Alexander Flores, Parker said that he was going to always look for the knockout for the rest of his career. So far he is 2-0 with 2 knockouts since making that proclamation.

The thought process stems from his decision loss to Dillian Whyte in July, 2018.  The 27-year-old Kiwi explained that he doesn't want to leave the decision in the judges hands.

"That is always the plan. The plan is always to get the knockout. I don't want to say it because if you don't get it then people say this and that. The plan is to win in a devastating fashion and get a good knockout but it is what it is. Whatever happens happens but it would be nice," Parker told

As for who he wants after Chisora, Parker simply said, "Anyone. (Anthony) Joshua, (Andy) Ruiz, Whyte. As long as I get the win I don't care who I fight."

Hopefully Parker gets a UK ref that don't count headbutts as legal blows, then again Joseph Parker likes getting screwed over in the UK so I guess I changed my mind!

I'd like to see the old man get a win. I think Parker, but I kinda hope Chisora.
