Parker vs Chisora: Results, reaction from fans and experts

Tonight, Joseph Parker survived a knockdown in the fight's opening seconds to narrowly defeat a strong Derek Chisora via a split decision.

Scores were 115-113 Chisora and 116-111 / 115-113 Parker.

Parker acknowledged it was close and that he was happy to get the nod while Chisora clearly believed he deserved a clear victory.

Chisora, 37, fought well and carried the early rounds. He landed the harder shots and was an effective aggressor during most of the fight. However, he would tire and allow Parker, 31, with his crisp, hard combinations, to climb back into the fight.

It was a close bout so it's hard to argue with the decision. Despite his fast start, Chisora couldn't seal the deal and appeared to be out boxed in the back half of the fight.

It's easy to sympathize with Chisora because he fought extremely hard.

Parker vs Chisora 2?

Afterwards, a rematch was discussed during the post-fight interviews.

Here's some of the Parker vs Chisora reaction from fans and experts:

After 2 rounds...

Good opening two rounds for Chisora. Parker is keeping his composure, remaining relaxed but he dropped those 2 rounds despite a nice jab. He's going to have to step up his aggression or hope that Chisora gets tired by the middle rounds (which might happen). #ParkerChisora

2 rounds in and chisora is exhausted #ParkerChisora

Parker can't maintain distance with Chisora. Chisora 20-17 #ParkerChisora

Parker needs to establish his jab and maintain his distance. Letting Chisora walk him down #ChisoraParker #ParkerChisora

Round 4 - Another round for Chisora who is not giving Parker a second to breathe or get going in this fight. Chisora has worked the body well & has not given Parker anytime so far in this fight #ParkerChisora

After Round 7

Chisora sounds like he is having an asthma attack Parker needs to take advantage of this #ParkerChisora

— TalkinBoxing (@TalkinBoxing) May 1, 2021

 

That Round 7 was sloppy but also pretty good. #ParkerChisora

— Douglass Fischer (@dougiefischer) May 1, 2021

 

69-63 Chisora for round 7. What the hell is going on with Parker? I think he underestimated this guy. #ParkerChisora

Parker has done very well after the 6th round, very close fight. #ParkerChisora

— Dazzling De La Dellboi (@dellboi94) May 1, 2021

 

The fact that Parker still seems to be ignoring the body after hearing Chisora heavily breathing throughout these round is interesting... #ParkerChisora #ChisoraParker #DAZN #boxing
