Dereck Chisora drops three times as Joseph Parker wins by unanimous points

Joseph Parker has secured a unanimous points victory over Dereck Chisora, dropping his opponent three times on the way to a second successive win over the Briton.

The former WBO heavyweight champion had the better of the opening exchanges before finally landing one of many fight-defining uppercuts, forcing Chisora to stay upright by holding onto the ropes.

Parker felt on the verge of stopping Chisora on multiple occasions, only for the home fighter to repeatedly show the kind of spirit that has made him a fan’s favourite.


Nevertheless, the uppercut again floored Chisora in round seven and eight, and although an exhausted Chisora remarkably made it to the final bell, there were no complaints at Parker prevailing by scores of 115-110, 115-111 and 114-112 respectively.
