Parker overcame a first round knockdown to win a 12 round Split Decision. Chisora was however, able to leave up to his name  “War” and caused a lot of problems for the former Champion and still believes that the result from their first meeting was a robbery.

“I 100% won the first fight, I was the more pressure fighter, I was making the fight happen – all he wanted to do was hold. The whole Kronk style of holding and resting on you, that’s what they do – it’s good for them.”

Due to his perception of the result from the first fight, Dillian Whyte fight and Usyk fight. Chisora is planning to talk to his team about getting an American referee for the fight. He feels he was robbed and unfairly treated in each of those fight.

“Two fights behind closed doors, Usyk and Parker, Manchester again. I’m half excited and half not, I’m happy for the fight but I might be disappointed with what comes with the fight to be honest with you. I’m going to speak to my management team at 258 that we get an American referee and good judges for this fight because so many times I’ve been robbed, in Helsinki, the first one here with Dillian – it gets a bit frustrating,” Chisora said.

Chisora seemed serious with his words which he directed to the BBOfC and made his statements clear, he doesn’t want anything to do with their referees.

“I’m happy the rematch is on, I’m excited and I’ve got David Coldwell now with me. Right now, I’m not buzzing yet, but I want to say this honestly to the press and to you Eddie, I need you to get a good referee, an American referee, not a BBBofC referee because those guys in the past have messed me around. If Robert Smith is listening, I do not want your referee to ref me for this fight.”
