Eddie Hearn originally planned to hold a Chisora vs Parker fight in July at the second night of the summer Fight Camp, but these plans were not destined to come true. The main event of the evening, scheduled for the end of April and May, was supposed to be the fight of Josh Warrington and Jang Xu, but after the defeat of the Briton by Mauricio Lara, Warrington can forget about the fight against the Chinese for now.

The boxing night will be shown in the UK on Pay-Per-View. The evening's card will also feature a bout of the unified lightweight champion Katie Taylor (17-0, 6 KOs). The 34-year-old Irish boxer is likely to face Natasha Jonas (9-1-1, 7 KOs).

As part of the April evening, there will also be a fight for the European super middleweight title between former world champion Giovanni DeCarolis (28-9-1, 13 KOs) and Lerrone Richards (14-0, 3 KOs). At the same evening, the WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (17-0, 11 KOs) will have his next professional fight. The rival of the 30-year-old Russian, who will return to the ring after a 1.5-year break, will be Craig Richards (16-1-1, 9 KOs).
