They’ve been embroiled in a war of words for nearly two years, but it’s finally time for Joseph Parker (28-2) and Derek Chisora (32-10) to let their fists do the talking. You’re in the right place to find out all the details of how to watch a Parker vs Chisora live stream online to catch all this weekend’s boxing action from anywhere in the world – with FREE options available in some regions.
Del Boy rarely needs an excuse to start shooting his mouth off, but that’s exactly what Parker gave him when he pulled out of their October 2019 fight because of a spider bite, and he’s been questioning the New Zealander’s courage ever since.
It’s been nearly three years since Parker last fought in the UK. In fact, the only two defeats of his professional career came in Blighty – at the hands of Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte, both in 2018. But he’s been on an upward trajectory ever since, winning four consecutive fights – three by knockout – the most recent of which came at the expense of long-time rival Junior Fa in February.
Chisora had won three in a row before succumbing to former cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk in October. Chisora came flying out of the blocks but punched himself out, and it was one-way traffic after that.
It’s a grudge match that’s been nearly two years in the making, and here’s how to watch a Joseph Parker vs Derek Chisora live stream from anywhere.
Can I watch a free Parker vs Chisora live stream?
Yes, in a way – but only in certain countries where a DAZN free trial is on offer.
Boxing fans in Canada are among those in luck, as while it costs 20 bucks in the Great White North for the service monthly, you can get a FREE trial of DAZN in Canada. It’s one of the only countries, along with Switzerland, we’re aware of where the service offers a trial on the house.
If that isn’t you, don’t worry, as DAZN is dirt cheap all over the world!
It’s also really reasonable to watch Parker vs Chisora in Australia, where DAZN is currently being offered for the introductory discount price of just $2.99 a month, compared to the steeper DAZN US price of $19.99 a month.

Who is Joseph Parker?
Joseph Parker is a 29-year-old former WBO heavyweight champion of the world, having won the vacant belt by defeating Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2016.
He held onto it for 15 months, successfully defending his title twice, before it was taken from him by Anthony Joshua in March 2018, in a fight that went the distance and was awarded to AJ via unanimous decision.
It was the first defeat of Parker’s professional career, and he would lose again four months later, albeit in controversial circumstances.
Dillian Whyte beat him via unanimous decision in July 2018, though the fight featured a clash of heads that dropped Parker to the canvas, as well as roughhouse tactics from Whyte, including rabbit punches, shoves and headbutts.
Who is Derek ‘Del Boy’ Chisora?
Derek Chisora is a hugely experienced boxer, the 37-year-old having started his professional career in 2007.
The Zimbabwean-born British fighter has faced many of the biggest names of the past decade, including Vitali Klitschko, Tyson Fury, David Haye and Dillian Whyte, though he came out second-best to all of them.
He’s known for his wind-up tactics, which have included kissing Carl Baker at the weigh-in before their fight, slapping Klitschko at the weigh-in and, after losing that fight, instigating a brawl with Haye – which led to the temporary withdrawal of his boxing licence.
