Joseph Parker and Derek Chirosa will be meeting for a second time this year on Saturday night. A win for Parker could see him move back into the frame for a potential title shot further down the line.
Parker and Chisora first clashed back in May at the Manchester Arena.
It was a tightly-contested fight, with the New Zealand boxer ultimately coming out on top in a split decision.
After the fight, Parker admitted the result could’ve gone either way, however.
Chisora was convinced he was going to be given the decision on points, prompting a rematch for this weekend.
The Brit is hoping to avoid a third successive defeat, after previously losing to Oleksandr Usyk in 2020, and then Parker earlier this year.
Questions have been raised about his future if he were to lose tonight, however.
The 37-year-old has a habit of making a comeback when it’s least expected, so he shouldn’t be written off.
Parker, on the other hand, is in electric form, and has won all of his previous five fights since losing to Dillian Whyte.

Going into the fight, Parker said: “It doesn’t really bother me what he does, because I have a focus on what we are trying to do; myself and Andy [his trainer] and the team.
“Going into this fight, we’ve done everything right. So whatever he does, whatever he brings, however he’s prepared, we’re ready for him.
Chisora said: “I’m so keen, I want to fight. The last fight was good, but this one is going to be much better.
“It’s not revenge, I just want to fight and it’s going to be a good fight. I’m going to knock him out in (round) one. I’m coming in fitter and stronger.”
