Promoter Eddie Hearn has claimed it will be ‘the best card I’ve ever put on’, but an argument at the weigh-in has left Chisora unhappy.

The British heavyweight tipped the scales at 250½lbs while his New Zealand opponent came in at 241.1lbs.

Chisora was adamant he wanted to come into the ring second on Saturday night with a coin toss the method proposed.

But he was having none of it and told Sky Sports: “We’re having an argument, they wanna do a coin flip [for] who comes in the ring first/second. Nah, not doing that. Either I come in second or I go home right now.”

The coin toss did eventually take place and Chisora LOST meaning he will have to come into the ring first and Parker second.

Chisora’s promoter David Haye believes the fight could be in serious danger if the British fighter doesn’t get his way.

He said: “I genuinely can’t see the fight happening if Derek’s told to come in first. I know it makes zero sense.

“He agreed it and signed the contract. He’s that guy, he just doesn’t care.”
