Derek Chisora vs Joseph Parker - LIVE!

Joseph Parker took an important step on what he hopes will be a successful road back to world title contention in Manchester on Saturday night.

The former WBO champion was knocked down inside just seven seconds of his main-event heavyweight tussle with Britain’s Derek Chisora at the AO Arena, but recovered to pick up a gruelling split-decision victory.

In tonight’s co-main event, Katie Taylor retained her undisputed lightweight champion status after narrowly overcoming rival Natasha Jonas in an epic rematch of the Olympic quarter-final from London 2012.

Croydon’s Craig Richards could not take Dmitry Bivol’s WBA light-heavyweight title earlier in the evening, while Chris Eubank Jr brushed aside Marcus Morrison and Campbell Hatton - son of British boxing great Ricky - and heavyweight prospect Johnny Fisher both sealed second victories as professionals.
