Chisora v Parker: What’s 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.

“And actually, we’re going to look to announce five fights on Friday. At least two of them are too big – probably three of them – are too big to headline Saturday night fight nights.

“So it’s a really good card. Really good card.”
