DEREK CHISORA and Joseph Parker do battle AGAIN in a huge rematch in Manchester.
Chisora knocked Parker down inside seven seconds in their first fight in May before losing on a split decision over 12 rounds.
And the Finchley heavyweight is still aggrieved with the scorecards as we head into the rematch.
Chisora, 37, said: “I 100% won the first fight, I was the more pressure fighter, I was making the fight happen – all he wanted to do was hold. The whole Kronk style of holding and resting on you, that’s what they do – it’s good for them.
“The name of the game ladies and gentlemen is boxing, bite your gumshield and chuck the leather.
“There isn’t any point of trying to tip-toe boxing, it doesn’t work, bite the gum-shield and chuck the kitchen sink – that’s the name of the game for me. We are coming to war, that’s why people love watching me, we’re coming to fight. I’ve never been in boxing my life – we’re coming to fight.”

What happened in the first fight?
Derek Chisora knocked down Joseph Parker within SEVEN seconds…but Parker recovered to win via split decision in a thriller which, like the upcoming rematch, took place at the Manchester Arena.
A gruelling heavyweight main event went down to the wire, with New Zealander Parker prevailing 113-115, 116-111, 115-113 in the end.
But Del Boy declared himself furious with the judges’ decision, saying: “I train hard every day, I give everything in the gym, and when I put it all in there, these are the results I get.”
