Higgins disappointed by Chisora plan
Joseph Parker's promoter, David Higgins, believes Derek Chisora is avoiding his fighter and looking to retire next year.
The Londoner has yet to return to training after stopping David Price last month at the O2 Arena in London.
Chisora has now won three fights in a row since been knocked out by Dillian Whyte in December 2018 and was due to take on Parker last month.
The New Zealander was forced to withdraw due to a spider bite, but the former WBO heavyweight champion still wants to share a ring with the 35-year-old.
Chisora's manager, David Haye, is looking to secure a fight with Oleksandr Usyk in 2020. Higgins claims Chisora will lose that bout and believes he's chasing an easy way out after agreeing to a career-high payday.
He told Sky Sports: "Stick to your word both of you and give the fans what they want.
"Stop running away, trying to take another option because you think there might be a little bit more money. Chisora would probably lose to Usyk. He might make a little bit more money, but that's like a retirement fight. When you take a fight you know you're going to lose, for a bit more money, you're basically saying 'I'm retiring.'
"My message is - if Chisora and Haye choose to go with Usyk, they are putting up a white flag. Chisora is saying 'I'm finished with boxing and I just want to take the money."
