Joseph Parker’s manager”agrees” with Derek Chisora’s press conference rant, but says that the New Zealander does not have any”ego problems” ahead of the heavyweight battle.
Chisora needed to know why his struggle with Parker wasn’t the main event, launching into an expletive-laden tirade at the very first press conference to get a bumper O2 invoice, which is topped by Regis Prograis from Josh Taylor on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Higgins considers Parker conflict with Chisora will even capture the eye of struggle fans, although prograis faces Scotland’s Taylor at the World Boxing Super Series final, together using two world super-lightweight titles at stake.
“Yeah I agree,” Higgins told Sky Sports. “Parker-Chisora or even Chisora-Parker since the Brits like to call it is a bigger attraction commercially, regarding tickets sold at The O2 and viewing figures. It depends on how you are currently making the decision.
“Technically it [Prograis vs Taylor] is more elite concerning names, but in terms of fan favourites and exciting boxing matches, Parker-Chisora is the bigger occasion, therefore I concur with Chisora.
“That being said, our side do not care just as much. Joseph has never been one fret about things like this, or to have ego issues. He understands what the job is and it will be to punch Chisora from the surface, and closed him up.”
Chisora has parted company with trainer David Coldwell, who guided the 35-year-old to a volatile knockout win over Artur Szpilka in his last struggle.
The Rotherham-based coach affirmed on websites he could not divide his time between travelling and his fighters to London to get Chisora’s preparations.
Higgins stated:”it is a indication of problems in the camp and near the struggle. To shed a coach that seemed to be a good team, and his trainer this far out, you’ve got to ask the reason why?
“Our staff is unified, on the house track with no problems.”
