Simon Jordan is supporting Derek Chisora this weekend – because he thinks Joseph Parker is “boring” and “hanging out like a bad smell”.
The 29-year-old heavyweight will take on ‘Del Boy’, who will seek revenge after losing the last fight in controversial circumstances.
Even though he knocked Parker to the ground in ten seconds, Chisora lost the game by split decision.
The duo will face Manchester AO Arena on Saturday and Jordan has explained why he wants Chisora to win.
“I hope Derek wins it,” the former Crystal Palace chairman told talkSPORT.
“Because I think Parker is just boring, he doesn’t take risks and he had a world title.
“When I went to see him fight [Anthony] Joshua in Cardiff, it was just shocking.
“I know Anthony was trying to negotiate this fight by showing maybe some of his true colors that we saw later down the line, that is, he was reserving himself.
“But Parker, for me, I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
He added: “I’m sick of Parker hanging out like a bad smell, he keeps hanging out like he’s on the scene, like we should give him credibility.”
“Really, really, he’s slashing past fights, there’s not much about him that makes him an engaging heavyweight.
“At least with Chisora, I think he’s limited at times, but at least with Chisora you’re going to see something he’s opposed to, whether it’s Dillian [Whyte] or whoever else, you get what you pay for.
