Perhaps in the near future we will witness the fight for the vacant (or temporary) WBO heavyweight belt between Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) and Joseph Parker (26-2, 20 KOs). According to David Higgins, the promoter from New Zealand, although Usyk is higher in the rankings of the World Boxing Organization, Parker should get a larger percentage of the total purse for the fight.
Joseph Parker (26-2, 20 KOs) said that, as soon as the opportunity arose, he'd be ready to fight for the WBO heavyweight belt against Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs). The title of the World Boxing Organization belongs to Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) now, who, however, may soon vacate this trophy.
In February, the former European heavyweight champion Derek Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) will hold his next professional bout. This was stated by Eddie Hearn, the head of Matchroom Boxing. The fight of the 35-year-old Briton should become the main event of the boxing evening in Manchester.
The bout between Derek Chisora (31-9, 22 KOs) and Joseph Parker (26-2, 20 KOs) is one of the possible fights that can take place at the evening on December 7 in Riyadh, in the main event of which Anthony Joshua (22-1, 21 КОs) will have a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-1, 22 KOs).
