British heavyweight veteran Derek Chisora (32-10-0, 23 KO) explained ahead of the fight against New Zealander Joseph Parker (28-2-0, 21 KO) why he was not going to retire.
“People are constantly saying that I need to leave. But if I do this, who will replace me? Joshua won’t do it, he has charisma but no sense of humor. At least Tyson and Dillian say what they think. Everything will change after I leave, so I prefer to stay.
Parker can come up with any plan for a fight, we will break him. I also feel pain, but my rivals still feel it more. I like to fight and I don’t want to sit on the couch all day, ”Chisora said.
Earlier in an interview, the fighter criticized sanctioning organizations, which he believes allow boxers to compete for championship belts at their sole discretion.
