    The Savage prepares for war

    Swift night's work for the New Zealander.

    Alen Babic is NEXT!

    Joseph Parker on Tyson Fury help

    Tyson Fury has been in Parker's training camp throughout the year.

    And after all, who better to teach Parker how to beat Chisora convincingly than the man who did it twice?

    "It's been great to be around Tyson [Fury], to get feedback from him and he's been telling me things that I should be aware of against Dereck," Parker told ESPN.

    "He knows Derek well, they are friends, and he's fought him twice.

    "It gives me confidence and a boost to be training alongside someone like Tyson [Fury] because he's so passionate about boxing and the positivity he has."

    Eddie Hearn praises Derek Chisora

    Tonight will be 44th fight as a professional and despite 11 losses – he's still in big bouts.

    And his promoter Eddie Hearn has heaped the praise on him ahead of one of his toughest nights in store.

    "We will have a huge crowd on Saturday and I am anticipating a phenomenal atmosphere," he told the BBC.

    "I can see it really lifting Chisora. Although he will tell you he expects to fight for many years to come, he really must beat Parker to remain in these top-tier fights.

    "What an amazing servant he has been. I know he has suffered some defeats but look at the pedigree of his opponents.

    "Tyson Fury twice, Vitali Klitschko, Oleksandr Usyk, David Haye, Joseph Parker and he was robbed of the win against Robert Helenius and Kubrat Pulev."

    Sandy Ryan wins via KO

    Another big win for Matchroom's latest female prospect. Big stoppage in Manchester.

    Joshua Buatsi gives his prediction

    Buatsi was supposed to be fighting on tonight's card against Maxim Vlasov but pulled out due to an injury.

    And he thinks Chisora will do the business this evening.

    "I think Chisora is going to do it," Buatsi told BBC Sport.

    "Parker is a very good fighter and was heavyweight world champion at a very young age.

    "The experience he's got, he'll be confident he can do what he needs to keep Chisora off. He might say 'let's meet in the middle of the ring' so it's interesting to see what happens."

    Jordan Thompsons wins by KO

    And it was a huge win for Jordan Thompson on the undercard, as he wiped out Piotr Budziszewski in just one round.

      Dixon wins on undercard

      It was a nifty points win for Rhiannon Dixon in Manchester on the Chisora-Parker undercard.

      60-54 she took it on the referee's scorecard.

      Good evening!

      Hello and welcome to SunSport's live coverage of Derek Chisora's huge heavyweight rematch with Joseph Parker tonight in Manchester!

      It's been a long-old career for Del Boy, a fruitful one at that, and tonight could be one for the catalogue.

      The first one, though a barn-burner, failed to live up to expectations in some fans' eyes, perhaps due to the lack of fanfare inside the Manchester Arena.

      But with 12,000 expected in there tonight, Chisora should get the reception he's been waiting to hear since his last clash in front of fans over two years ago.

      Parker won the first one via split decision, but was dropped in the first round by a rough and ready Chisora.

      The New Zealander will be expecting it all tonight, but he'll be ready as he has Andy Lee in his corner with Tyson Fury for moral support.

      They've no doubt tried to turne Parker into KO machine Fury has become with their Kronk style training.

      But to do it against Chisora could prove to be dangerous.

      Elsewhere on the card, Lerrone Richards challenges Carlos Gongora for his IBO super-middleweight title.

      Zelfa Barret, Alen Babic and Jack Cullen are also in action on a stacked night of boxing in Manchester.

      So sit back, relax and crack open a cold one – we've got you covered throughout the evening.
