    HELL STORM

    Derek Chisora has vowed to chuck 'hell' at Joseph Parker in their heavyweight dust-up tomorrow night.

    FACE OFF

    In case you missed it, Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker had a pretty relaxed face-off yesterday.

    In fact, Del Boy tried to give Parker a hug – an embrace which was brushed off by the Kiwi.

    Something tells me there won't be any attempted hugs after the pair weigh-in.

    THE BODY SNATCHERWEIGHS IN

    Dillian Whyte knows a thing or two about Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker having shared the ring with both men.

    And The Body Snatcher is refusing to rule out the possibility of Chisora pulling off an upset.

    He told Sky Sports: "Derek Chisora finds a way of coming back, because people challenge him, thinking he could be an easy fight and then he shows up and he surprises a lot of people.

    "Parker since he fought me, he hasn't been the same, and he hasn't fought any top guys. But he still talks, 'I want the rematch, I want this and that.'

    "I beat you last time when I had a broken rib and a broken hand, and a bad chest infection. I bullied you around the ring.

    "He's a young guy, he's tough, he can take a punch, but it seems like he hasn't got so much drive any more.

    "With Chisora, we know that when he's motivated and he gets his head right and he trains right, he's a problem for anyone.

    "Hopefully he does well, but I don't care. Whoever wins, it's good for me. The more heavyweights at the top, the better it is. I'm sure the winner will call my name again, but let's see what happens."

    PRIMED FOR WAR

    Derek Chisora will bid to get back in the win column in his clash with former WBO champ Joseph Parker following defeat to Oleksandr Usyk last November.

    And the former world title challenger appears to have dropped a few pounds ahead of Saturday's showdown.

    GETTING COSY AT BREAKFAST

    Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora enjoyed a bizarre breakfast with Spiderman on Thursday morning.

    But something tells me their meeting this afternoon won't be as cordial.

    DEL OF A FIGHT

    Derek Chisora faces Joseph Parker on Saturday night in a huge fight night in Manchester, and we'll be bringing you all of the updates starting from TODAY'S weigh in at 1pm right here.

    The pair were originally set to do battle in 2019 but a SPIDER bite ruled out Parker.

    Katie Taylor vs Natasha Jonas is the chief support on a stacked undercard which includes Chris Eubank Jr and Campbell Hatton both in action too.

    Chisora and Parker have enjoyed a jovial fight week, even sharing breakfast together this week.

    Though Chisora has been far from enthusiastic about Parker's last fight, when he beat Junior Fa in his native New Zealand in February.

    Chisora said: “If I had boxed for the title he won in New Zealand, I would have won it as well.

    “There’s not much really happening in New Zealand.

    “If that fight was on a different continent he’d have lost it because when Ruiz was bringing the heat on and pushing the fight… it went Joe’s way because it was his show.

    “But really and truly I’ve got respect for Joe and I don’t have anything bad to say about Joe because he hasn’t done anything bad in the sport.

    “He has been given fights and he has fought those fights.”
