  • Joseph Parker v Dereck Chisora II, live from the AO Arena, Manchester

  • Olympic Bronze medallist David Nyika also on the undercard

  • Sunday 19 December (NZT) from 7am, available for $39.95 Sky Arena & Sky Sport Now pay-per-view


Kiwis can set the clock for an early start on Sunday 19 December to see Joseph Parker in his first-ever ​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​rematch as he takes on Dereck Chisora. In May 2021, a split decision saw the New Zealander take away the heavyweight bout, so Chisora is most certainly out to even the score. The verbal sparring is well and truly up and running since this much anticipated bout was locked in back in October.


Parker has been training in Manchester with Andy Lee in Tyson Fury’s gym, alongside David Nyika who is charting a new career as a pro boxer. Nyika’s opponent is to be announced shortly and we’re pumped to see how another awesome Kiwi makes his mark in the ring.


Sky and Aotearoa are 100% behind the boys. Here’s hoping Christmas comes early for both Kiwis.

  • The bout will be held at the AO Arena in Manchester.

  • The action should get underway from 7am NZT time, with the ring-walks for the main event commencing closer to 10 am.
