Derek Chisora vs Joseph Parker tale of the tape: How boxers compare after agreeing to fight on May 1

DEREK CHISORA is on a collision course with former heavyweight champion Joseph Parker.

Former WBO titleholder Parker agreed to face the battle-seasoned Chisora in a light-hearted FaceTime call earlier this week.

Chisora, 37, said to the New Zealander: "I've been trying to get hold of you!"

Parker, who lost the WBO strap to Anthony Joshua two years ago, replied: "Are you ready to go?"

A fired-up Chisora responded: "I'm ready to go. How about you? I'm ready to rock and roll so you tell me."

Parker added: "I'm ready to rock and roll too, seriously. I'm ready to go.

"I'm looking forward to seeing you soon because you entertain."

Fan favourite Chisora signed off by saying: "Parker has FaceTimed me and has definitely confirmed the fight is happening."


Parker then added: "Let's make it happen."

With a showdown between the pair verbally agreed, attention has turned to their respective records.

And SunSport is on hand to give you all the details on a potential showdown between the pair, who are looking to share the ring in May.

Derek Chisora

Former world title challenger Chisora has fought a who's who of the heavyweight division.

The bruiser has locked horns with the likes of David Haye, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Vitali Klitschko.

The Zimbabwean-born Brit has had 42 fights in his professional career, which began all the way back in February 2007.

War has triumphed in 32 of those bouts, winning 23 of them by way of KO or TKO.

Chisora has tasted defeat on ten occasions, including in his world title clash with Klitschko in February 2012.

The veteran has won three of his last four since losing his rematch with Whyte and is still very much a force to be reckoned with in the stacked heavyweight division.

Joseph Parker

At the age of 29, New Zealand's Parker still has his best years ahead of him.

The 6'4 Kiwi has amassed an impressive record since making his debut against Dean Garmonsway in July 2012.

Parker has tasted victory 28 times in 30 professional fights, winning 21 of his bouts inside the distance.

The only blemishes on his record are back-to-back defeats to Joshua and Whyte, the former of which ended his reign as WBO king.

Parker has bounced back incredibly well from those consecutive setbacks, rattling off four wins in a row.

But he looked sluggish and slow in his decision victory over Junior Fa late last month.
