Chisora v Parker: What has been said?
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “I think it’s the best card I’ve ever put on. I do say that nearly every week but I’m looking at it here.
“Every fight on the card could be a Saturday night fight night headliner.”
He added to iFLTV: “Why is Parker – Chisora box office? I tell you what. Add up the purses for Chisora, Parker, Taylor, for Jonas, for Eubank, for Morrison, for Dimitry Bivol, for Craig Richards, for James Tennyson, for Campbell Hatton, and put in the fact that there are no crowds, this is an unbelievable card on Saturday night.
“If you don’t think you’re getting value or money, you’re not out shopping. You’re out shoplifting.”
