In a shocking turn of events, Dereck Chisora (31-9) has threatened to pull out of his scheduled fight with former WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (26-2).
The pair is due to meet on October 26 on the card of Regis Prograis and Josh Taylor in London. Everything snapped in a matter of seconds during the official press conference that was held earlier today. “WAR” has demanded more money for his participation in the co-main event of the night.
Even though the Scot and the American will meet in a unification super lightweight bout, the 35-year-old Brit believes his fight with the 27-year-old Parker will be the reak pearl in the crown.
“Who’s the main event of this night? I’m not selling out the O2 to main event for these boys”, Chisora stated.

“No cares about the Muhammad Ali trophy. If I’m not going to main event I want more money or I’m pulling out the show. I feel like you are f***ing me with no Vaseline.
As the main event guys were talking to the media, Chisora stormed out of the press conference. As “WAR” was walking, Prograis said to him: “We’re number one and number two in the division,” to which the heavyweight responded: “No one cares about you.”
