Fury says if Chisora ​​connects with a ‘big swing’ he could be in real trouble

“Derek Chisora ​​had a lot of losses but he was probably in the right place at the right time, a good win over Pulev and now he has the opportunity to fight Tyson for the world championship and get paid well.”

But fighting Fury, widely considered the best heavyweight in the world, is as tough a challenge as it gets.

“What Chisora ​​needs to do is do what he does best, which is show up and throw it all at Tyson. In boxing, it takes a punch to change everything,” explained Parker.

“There is only one way for Chisora ​​to win this fight and I think a lot of people would agree that he should put it to her right away.

“You can’t sit back and do your best to box someone like Tyson, because he’s a good boxer and a good fighter, so you just have to give it to him and give him everything you’ve got. “

Chisora ​​has already said he wants to start fast against Fury

Chisora ​​said at Thursday’s press conference that he intends to give it his all from the opening bell.

“I think Chisora ​​hit the nail on the head when he said that was what he wanted to do in the first round,” Parker said.

“His nickname is ‘War’ so yeah, he has to go to war in the first round and that’s what he has to do. Even going to war, it’s going to be a tough task to get someone like Tyson out, but he just has to give it his best.”

Parker doesn’t believe Chisora ​​is about to topple Fury, though. “If Derek Chisora ​​grabs it or pulls it out and wins the fight, that would be huge. It would be one of the biggest upsets,” the New Zealander said.
