Boxing is back in 2021 following a stop-start 2020 full of turmoil, cancelled showdowns and big fights in silent arenas.


There's plenty to get excited about, with no fight bigger than the upcoming world heavyweight title showdown between British megastars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

A two-fight deal is edging closer – though Frank Bruno wants three Joshua v Fury fights – but until then, there's plenty of action from rings around the world with two particularly feisty occasions coming up.

Dereck Chisora goes up against Joseph Parker this week. Parker's only two defeats have come against British opponents in the shape of Joshua and Dillian Whyte in back-to-back encounters.

Chisora put up a spirited showing against Oleksandr Usyk last time out but the seasoned 37-year-old will be determined to add more wins to his record, not just performances against some of the world's finest.

More like this has rounded up the full boxing schedule for this week including how you can watch the action live from home.
