Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora first went toe-to-toe in a close and bruising encounter back in May, that saw Chisora floor his opponent inside seven seconds, with the British fighter continuing to terrorise the Kiwi during the fight’s opening rounds.
Parker weathered the storm, however, and dominated the final two-thirds of the contest before getting the nod on a split decision after a gritty 12 rounds, a victory that earned him the vacant WBO Inter-Continental heavyweight title. Chisora maintains that he was robbed by the judges so expect another full-bloodied affair on Saturday as the Finchley-born fighter looks to set the record straight.

Out of the country? DAZN subscribers who find themselves abroad for the fight will find they can access their account just like they would at home – wherever you are in the world, all you need is the help of a good VPN.
However, those looking to subscribe to DAZN for the first time may find the service manages to effectively block certain VPNs at the point of creating an account. VPNs most notably encounter obstacles starting from scratch with DAZN Canada, though in other places like the US our general sports VPN recommendation was working fine in 2021.
And if you’ve already got an account, a VPN should work wherever you are to help you regain access to pre-existing subscriptions.

What is DAZN? All you need to know
Pronounced ‘Da Zone’, DAZN is a sports-centric streaming service that launched in 2016 and is now available in over 200 countries all around the world including the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Its offering varies by region, but as an idea, it owns the rights to the Premier League, Champions League, NFL, cricket, snooker, rugby union and more in Canada – one of its original and biggest markets.
It’s also seeking to challenge the pay-per-view boxing hierarchy, and is landing an increasing number of coups.
The price of DAZN also varies depending on where you are in the world but is generally competitive – in newer markets like Australia, an introductory offer is still running that has it available for just $2.99 a month, while in more established markets like Canada it costs CAD$20 a month.
It’s a great all-round offering, with the only real drawback being that it doesn’t play overly nice with VPNs in all territories. As we’ve said, Canadians abroad will find they can’t sign up for DAZN even with the help of a Virtual Private Network – though existing account holders (with or without a subscription) will find they can access the service fine.
It’s not universally the case, either, as our latest testing reveals DAZN US is accessible using a VPN across the board.

Who is Joseph Parker?
The 29-year-old is the current WBO Inter-Continental heavyweight title holder following his victory over Chisora last time out.
Parker had previously been the fully-fledged WBO heavyweight champ, having won the vacant belt by defeating Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2016.
He held onto that title for 15 months, successfully defending his crown twice, before it was taken from him by Anthony Joshua in March 2018, in a fight that went the distance and was awarded to AJ via unanimous decision.
It was the first defeat of Parker’s professional career, and he would lose again four months later, albeit in controversial circumstances.
Dillian Whyte beat him via unanimous decision in July 2018, though the fight featured a clash of heads that dropped Parker to the canvas, as well as roughhouse tactics from Whyte, including rabbit punches, shoves and headbutts.
Who is Derek ‘Del Boy’ Chisora?
Derek Chisora is a hugely experienced boxer, the 37-year-old having started his professional career in 2007.
The Zimbabwean-born British fighter has faced many of the biggest names of the past decade, including Vitali Klitschko, Tyson Fury, David Haye and Dillian Whyte, though he came out second-best to all of them.
He’s known for his wind-up tactics, which have included kissing Carl Baker at the weigh-in before their fight, slapping Klitschko at the weigh-in and, after losing that fight, instigating a brawl with Haye – which led to the temporary withdrawal of his boxing licence.
