What Derek Chisora said

Chisora has made clear his thoughts on the decision from his first fight with Parker and has asked the promoter and organising officials to change their referee selection.

“I’m half excited and half not, I’m happy for the fight but I might be disappointed with what comes with the fight to be honest with you. I’m going to speak to my management team at 258 that we get an American referee and good judges for this fight because so many times I’ve been robbed, in Helsinki, the first one here with Dillian – it gets a bit frustrating,” Chisora explained.

According to Chisora, the rematch is a chance to prove why he should have won the first fight. 
 
“I know for a fact come 18 December; we are going to war. Joseph Parker doesn’t scare me; he hasn’t got anything that I’m scared of. He hasn’t power punches, I don’t know how they gave him the last fight to be honest with you, I’m just disappointed they gave it to him,” Chisora said.

What Joseph Parker said

Despite the controversy, Parker has made clear that he believed he won the first fight and is back to repeat the result.

“I’m excited because it’s the first rematch in my career, I’m excited to start seeing the improvements I’ve been making in camp when I’ve been away in New Zealand and the things that Andy and I have been working on,” Parker said.

He has also acknowledged the challenge of fighting a veteran like Chisora.
 
"Derek (Chisora) is one tough guy, he comes forward and puts on the pressure," he said. 

"I feel like this is the place to be you know, I have this fight with Derek in front of me and there are a lot more fights out there that can be made… I feel like I’ll finish this fight within the distance, I’ve got a good feeling.”
