    Joseph Parker's manager believes victory over Dereck Chisora would propel the Kiwi heavyweight back into the big time

    Joseph Parker's manager believes victory over Dereck Chisora would propel the Kiwi heavyweight back into the big time


    David Higgins insists no offer is on the table for the October 26th bout which promoter Eddie Hearn says will be the main event on the card at the O2 Arena.

    But Higgins says they would welcome the fight.

    He says Chisora has a name and if Parker can beat him in London he's in pole position to be calling out Anthony Joshua again.

    Dereck Chisora has won four of his last five bouts while Parker has won his two bouts since defeats by Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte.
