Joseph Parker has recovered from a spider snack that is suspected and still hopes to get a struggle prior to the end of the year, says director David Higgins.
Book WBSS final & Chisora-Price
For fourteen days, forcing him to draw from a fight against Derek Chisora, that rather faces David Price on the Regis Prograis-Josh Taylor bill in The O2 on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office, the New Zealander was sidelined by illness.
But Parker might welcome a bout in the next few months, rather a rescheduled struggle and has remained to resume training.
Higgins told Sky Sports:Hed love to return before the close of the calendar year, completely.
He has recovered from what has been a three-week lay-off and hes back training, but that is actually a question for Eddie Hearn. Hes the promoter and were at their behest. We are realistic and were just waiting to hear back in Matchroom.
Hes in great spirits, he is back in practice. The feeling for those physicians, we think it really was a spider bite, although I found the British media kind of mocked the spider snack thing.
I am no specialist, but it sort of destroys your immune system, your wellbeing. You are fatigued. Medical professionals ordered him to endure for three weeks.
Make no mistake, we wanted to fight Chisora, we still do. Well just see what happens.
Parker will be watching Chisora with attention together with Higgins expecting his fighter may appear on the rematch, or even a US bill that is big as a victory over Cost could allow the Brit to make a swift return.
It is dependent upon how quickly Chisora can change and if Eddie Hearn or Frank Smith can pull some strings and get on New York or Saudi Arabia, explained Higgins. It would be a pity if Joseph had to sit for eight months, but we remain optimistic.
Hes in camp, his own loved ones are with him in Vegas. He is kind of waiting. Hes ready and willing, but if not, we have to be philosophical.
