Derek Chisora knocked down and battered by Joseph Parker in heavyweight rematch but vows not to retire
Derek Chisora was sent crashing to the floor and was punished by a barrage of heavy punches by Joseph Parker in their heavyweight rematch in Manchester on Saturday night.
Parker scored three knockdowns but was forced to settle for a unanimous decision victory only by the bravery of Chisora, who somehow made it to the final bell despite taking a shellacking.
Parker won their first fight by split decision earlier this year but took over the rematch from the third round when a massive uppercut put Chisora in dire straits.
The same punch by Parker in the fourth round sent Chisora tumbling into the ropes for the first knockdown. Against the odds, Chisora survived the round and even fired back his own dangerous shots.
