Dereck Chisora finally accepted that he will enter the ring first for his fight against Joseph Parker and he will not abandon the fight this Saturday, after his mother convinced him not to.
“Talk to Viola, the mother of Dereck and she is sometimes the only person she listens to ”, commented the coach David haye to Sky Sports. “She told me that he had finally told her that he would make his entrance first, just as he promised.”
The threat of Chisora about leaving the fight came after he lost the toss to Parker, by not showing up and the New Zealander decided to enter second for the contest in Manchester.
According Haye It is not the first time they have to use the mother of Dereck to avoid a conflict.
“We have had to turn to his mother in similar situations in the past, where we have tried in every possible way to make her Dereck do the right thing, “confessed the coach. “But sometimes it is the only way. The fight is 100% safe and Dereck will walk first ”.
Neither of them owns a world champion belt, so a clash of egos sparked the conflict with Chisora, who at 37 seems far from close for a title shot.
