Derek Chisora had accused Joseph Parker of ducking him ahead of a clash with Senad Gashi later this month.
‘WAR’ bids to get his career back on track following a second loss to Dillian Whyte, but had wanted to get straight into a huge fight.
Chisora’s handler David Haye sought out ex-WBO heavyweight ruler Parker for what would have been a UK Pay-Per-View battle.
Instead, Chisora was forced to draft in Gashi for a domestic double-header alongside Dave Allen at The O2 on Sky Sports.
Ahead of facing Gashi, Chisora couldn’t help but aim pot shots at Parker for avoiding another potential loss on British soil.
“On Saturday 20th April I will be stepping into the ring at The O2 with fire in my soul. I have a point to prove and mission to continue,” said Chisora.
“Parker b*tched out. He must have taken too many laxatives and sh*t himself. I know he wasn’t ready for the battle. He reckons he needed more time.
“Gashi has shown he is a true fighter. He is always ready to go to war when called. He showed this in December when he stepped in the ring with Takam on just one week’s notice. Gashi gave him a real fight.
“I’m not stupid, I know Gashi will be a different animal. He is a wild horse, a loose cannon. He is coming to win but trust me, he won’t hear the final bell.
“I’m ready, we’ve stepped things up a gear working hard with Dave Coldwell. April 20th WAR Chisora will be back in London to show the Heavyweight division exactly why retirement wasn’t an option.”
Parker has previously been defeated by Anthony Joshua and Whyte in Cardiff and London respectively, whilst holds a win over Hughie Fury in Manchester.
The New Zealander is yet to confirm his next move but never seems to be far from Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn’s thoughts.
Chisora v Gashi is joined by Allen taking on Australian puncher Lucas Browne in a fight which could lead to a future clash with David Price.
Josh Kelly, Joe Cordina and Conor Benn also participate on the Greenwich bill.
