Boxing: Joseph Parker sets sights on Dereck Chisora, Dillian Whyte after beating Shawndell Winters

Kiwi heavyweight Joseph Parker has called out Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte, after his impressive stoppage victory over American Shawndell Winters in Texas on Sunday (NZ time). 

Parker dropped Winters with a powerful right towards the end of round three and twice in the fifth round, before the referee waved off the fight and spared the American from further punishment. 

The bout was Parker's first since June last year - a 10th-round techinical knockout over Alex Leapai.

Now Parker, 29, is back fighting fit, he's desperate to fight another big-name heavyweight, and has Chisora and Whyte in his sights. 

The New Zealander was forced to pull out of an October fight with Chisora due to a spider bite, while he lost to  Whyte at the O2 Arena in 2018. 

"I want to keep busy and hopefully get two more fights this year, and finish off with a good bang at the end of the year," said Parker.

"Listen, I want to fight Chisora. I was supposed to go and fight him - I pulled out.

"I wanted to reschedule, but he went off, fought someone else.

"I want to fight Dillian again. I want to fight everyone in the top five or top 10 in the world.

"I want to get anyone and everyone."

Chisora is locked in to fight Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk in May and the winner of that fight could end up facing Parker in a WBO title eliminator. 

Parker's manager, David Higgins, hopes his charge could return between May and July, but has been frustrated in his pursuit of Whyte and Chisora.

"We've been privately trying to make the Dillian Whyte fight, ever since the lucky headbutt," Higgins told Sky Sports UK.

"Dillian Whyte has called out everyone, except Joe... won't mention his name. Chisora, it was all on and now Chisora won't even respond.

"Absolutely, we've been trying to make the fights."

Despite the win over Winters, Parker admits he was a tad rusty in his first fight in eight months. 

"I know I can box better than that," Parker said. "If I did box in range, I could have caught him earlier and I could have hurt him earlier on.

"I know I can do better than that. When you practice in sparring and in camp, and you don’t really display it, you don't show people how good you are."

Parker's boxing record stands at 27-2, with 21 wins coming by way of knockout.
