It's been almost two years since Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker were supposed to meet in the ring but this Saturday boxing fans will finally get to see the heavyweight showdown they've been waiting for and we have all the details on how you can watch Chisora vs Parker on TV or online.
The two former heavyweight champions were originally scheduled to go head to head at London's O2 Arena back in October of 2019. However, just before the fight, Parker fell ill after a spider bite and the event was cancelled. Chisora was unconvinced though and in recent weeks he has begun referring to Parker as a chicken ahead of their match.
Parker's last fight was in February when he defeated Junior Fa while Chisora was less successful when he stepped into the ring last Halloween to go up against Oleksandr Usyk. The two will finally have a chance to settle their unfinished business at the AO Arena in Manchester tonight where they'll go 12 rounds in a heavyweight bout.
Chisora vs Parker isn't the only big fight on tonight's card as Matchroom Boxing has also arranged for Katie Taylor and Tasha Jones to face off for the undisputed lightweight championship, Dmitry Bivol and Graig Richards to go toe to toe in a WBA world-light heavyweight title fight and James Tennyson and Jovanni Straffon to meet in the ring for a vacant IBO world lightweight title bout.
Whether you're rooting for Chisora, Parker or just want to catch all the action at AO Arena tonight, we'll show you how to watch Chisora vs Parker from anywhere in the world so you don't miss a second of the boxing.
