Derek Chisora could be in line for a summer showdown with Joseph Parker, says the heavyweight’s manager David Haye.
Chisora returns to the ring against Senad Gashi on Saturday’s bumper card at The O2, which features David Allen, Josh Kelly, Joe Cordina and Conor Benn.

And victory over the heavy-hitting Gashi will put the Londoner on a potential collision course with former WBO champion Parker.
“From our side it can be made very, very easily,” Haye told Sky Sports.
“Joseph Parker is a great fighter. He’s a friend of mine, he’s used my gym in the past when he’s been over here.
“I think that fight in the summer is great,” added Haye. “Joseph Parker is the perfect opponent for Derek.
“He is someone else who is coming off a good run of form, obviously he’s lost to Dillian Whyte and to Anthony Joshua, but apart from that he’s got a perfect record.
“He’s known in the UK and people know he comes to fight. He’s always in exciting fights; Dillian Whyte was very exciting. I hope him and his team are ready to come over, because Derek definitely is ready and we can make a fight with Parker.
“I think both of their styles would gel really well, Joseph is a lot younger, a hell of lot younger than Derek, but Derek has got the experience. He’s been there, done it and mixed with the very best. It would be a good fight for the fans.”
