Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker commented on his controversial split decision win over Derek Chisora. The New Zealand boxer, who was knocked down during the fight, admitted that the British veteran gave him a tough fight and expressed his readiness to face him in immediate revenge.
“We can do a rematch next fight. It was a tough fight. He caught me early in the fight, so I sank into myself and stayed focused.
Derek is very tough, he applied pressure, threw out powerful bombs and delivered a lot of blows. I won thanks to the boxing skills that I showed from the middle of the fight to the end.
It was a close fight. He could fold in any direction. I am capable of becoming a world champion. I need to work on some things with Andy Lee, “said Joseph Parker after the fight with Chisora.
