In the last heavyweight fight between the two back in May 2021, the two went the whole 12 rounds, and in the end, Parker won on a split decision despite dropping to the canvas in the first round.
Chisora felt like he should have won on the night, and this will add more fuel to the fire in the build up of these two getting ready to meet again in the ring.
Both boxers have a lot to prove, and they need the win desperately to prove that they should have another chance at a world title fight.
