By Scott Gilfoid: Eddie Hearn was in the damage control mode following Dereck Chisora’s one-sided 12 round unanimous decision loss to former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker last Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Chisora (32-12, 23 KOs) looked as old as the hills, getting dropped three times by Parker and looking exhausting much of the time.

What was hilarious was Hearn trying to put a positive spin on the future of the 37-year-old Chisora afterward, saying that he thinks he could beat Deontay Wilder.

Chisora was getting hurt nonstop by the 29-year-old Parker (30-2, 21 KOs), and it’s hard to imagine him being able to take more than one solid headshot from Deontay without getting put to sleep for the ten count.

Hearn says Chisora BEATS Deontay

“All Chisora’s losses have come at the elite level, and Wilder is elite level. Chisora can beat Wilder. If that fight goes past four, Chisora wins. But he’s gotta get past four, that’s going to be dangerous,” Eddie Hearn said via Michael Benson.

While it would be fun to have Hearn’s theory about Chisora beating Wilder tested out in real life, it’s not something that has any realistic chance of happening in this lifetime.

Chisora has lost his last three fights and hasn’t won a contest since his victory over British domestic level heavyweight David Price in 2019.

There is NO chance that Deontay would want to invest time in facing an aging journeyman who is losing more than he’s winning at this late stage in his 14-year professional career.

Hearn needs to start thinking about what he’s going to do with Chisora because he’s running out of options. How does Hearn continue to sell Chisora’s fights to the British public following this latest loss to Parker?

It might be time for hearn to start thinking about dumping Chisora overboard to trim some of the fat off Matchroom Boxing. Of course, before Hearn dumps Chisora, he can have him walk the plank for a cash-out fight against an up-and-comer in need of a name on their resume.

Eddie wants Parker to fight Hrgovic

“It was a great performance from Joseph Parker and great condition because he had to otherwise, he would have folded down the stretch,” said Hearn to Boxing Social on Parker’s win over Dereck Chisora.

“I had it 117-111. The 114-112, I don’t really get it, to be honest with you,” Hearn said on the scoring for the Parker vs. Chisora fight.

He could be in a final eliminator with Filip Hrgovic if he wants to take that fight. It’s a good fight,” said Hearn on what Parker’s options are for his next fight.

The chances are slim, and none that Parker would agree to fight Hrgovic (14-0, 12 KOs) in a final eliminator. With the way Parker gassed out after the ninth round last Saturday night against Chisora, he won’t last against Hrgovic.
