Joseph Parker’s manager”agrees” with Derek Chisora’s press conference rant, but states the New Zealander doesn’t have any”ego problems” ahead of the heavyweight battle.
Chisora demanded to know why his struggle Parker was not the principal event, launching in an expletive-laden tirade at the first press conference to get a bumper O2 bill, which is topped by Regis Prograis against Josh Taylor on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Prograis confronts Scotland’s Taylor from the World Boxing Super Series final, using two globe super-lightweight names at stake, however, Higgins believes Parker clash with Chisora will even catch the interest of fight fans.
“Yeah I concur,” Higgins told Sky Sports. “Parker-Chisora or even Chisora-Parker as the Brits like to call it is a bigger attraction commercially, in terms of tickets sold at The O2 and seeing figures. It is dependent upon how you are currently making the choice.
“Technically it [Prograis vs Taylor] is more elite concerning titles, but concerning fan favourites and exciting boxing matches, Parker-Chisora is your larger occasion, so I agree with Chisora.
“That having been said, our side don’t really care just as much. Joseph has never been one to get ego issues, or worry about things like this. He knows exactly what the task is and it will be to shake Chisora in the surface, and closed him up.”
Chisora has parted company with coach David Coldwell, that guided the 35-year-old to a volatile knockout win over Artur Szpilka in his final struggle.
The coach affirmed on media that he could not divide his time between his other fighters and travelling to London for Chisora’s trainings.
Higgins said:”it is a indication of problems in the camp and near the struggle. To shed his coach this far out you’ve got to ask why?
“Our crew is unified, professional and on the house track without any issues.”
