Two of the biggest names in heavyweight Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker are set to lock horns for the second time, with both having interesting boxing careers to date.

It has been a roller-coaster ride for the duo, with both the Londoner and the New Zealander fighting previously for world heavyweight titles. 

The first fight ended with Parker winning what was a gritty contest with the off, securing a 113-115 116-111 115-113 split-decision victory, which Chisora described as "unbelievable" and his fans certainly questioned the decision from the judges (via Standard).

Following this controversial call, the two men will get it on once again and step into the ring just before Christmas. We are taking a look back at the boxing careers of both Chisora and Parker heading into the fight and putting them side by side to see who has the better record.
