Joseph Parker in line for UK return against Dereck Chisora, hints Eddie Hearn

British boxing mastermind Eddie Hearn is talking up the return of Kiwi fighter Joseph Parker to the UK, eyeing up a bout with Dereck Chisora.

Having returned to form with a knockout win over Alexander Flores in December last year, Parker finds himself a step further on the comeback trail, having been defeated by both Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte in 2018, surrendering his WBO heavyweight title in the process.

With Joshua to fight against an as of yet unnamed opponent at London's O2 Arena in April, Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn spoke to Boxing Social, stating that he wants to see Parker on that same card.

"I would quite like to make [Dereck] Chisora against Joseph Parker [happen] for that card as well," Hearn said.

"We'll see where that goes over the next few days."

Chisora, 35, boasts a professional record of 29 wins from 38 fights, 21 by knockout, defeated in his most recent bout against Parker conqueror Whyte.
