DEREK CHISORA staunchly refused to hang up his boxing gloves and roared ‘f*** retired’ as he was already planning his comeback.
In May, Chisora went on a rampage after losing to Joseph Parker by tiebreaker, in a match in which he scored a knock-out in the first ten seconds.
But in the rematch in Manchester, the British veteran can’t argue like that after a one-way failure.
Chisora has been defeated three times and has repeatedly looked at the brink of a brutal halt.
But the resilient Londoner came back with enough to convince his corner and referee Howard Foster to let the action continue.
It resulted in a 12th career loss for Chisora, who Parker admitted should now consider retirement.
But the man himself has other ideas, so much so that he is planning to return in about six months’ time.
World title challenger, 37 years old, upholds his post-match tradition of sharing Five Guys burger with his opponent.
This is the second time he has baked a cheeseburger with Parker, 29, of New Zealand, who has boxed in the UK for the fifth time.
After the win, he said: “Derek always comes to fight, he’s a tough guy and doesn’t stop moving forward until the end.
“I already feel a lot stronger. It’s important to start strong and not be negative from the start. You may find a lot of room for improvement.
“Derek Chisora is a tribute to the sport of boxing. The crowd freaked out when he walked out. They just wanted to support him.”
Despite entering the fight with 11 losses, Chisora’s unpredictable personality and ruthless aggression make him a headline act.
But after the loss, Parker admitted that he wanted to see this as Chisora’s last.
He said: “Personally I would like to see him walk away. He gave boxing everything, but it was his decision.”
