Promoter Eddie Hearn is already laying down the plans for a May pay-per-view event, with heavyweights Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker colliding in the main event.

The original plan was for Hearn to stage a pay-per-view on May 1, featuring a featherweight fight between Josh Warrington and Can Xu.

After Warrington was recently knocked out by big underdog Mauricio Lara, that PPV plan went up in smoke.

Now Parker-Chisora is receiving the opportunity to replace that contest as the pay-per-view headliner.

"I don't want to give too much away but there is three other world championship fights, two big British names as well. I mean it's a special card that we're putting together. But there's quite a lot to do on it and we're running out of time," Hearn told IFL TV.

"So, I want to get it finalized this weekend before I go back to Texas next week for Chocolatito-Estrada. If we can pull off what I've got in front of me on the pad, which is my notes, then it'll be a really special night."

One of the fighters Hearn is looking to place on the undercard is WBA interim-middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. - who has been inactive since 2019 and recently signed a promotional deal with Team Sauerland.

"I'd like to try and get Eubank on the May 1st card with Chisora and Parker and everybody else. We'll be talking about that. He hasn't boxed for quite a long time but I think there's some big fights out there for him once he gets his return out the way," Hearn said.

Parker and Chisora were all set to face each other back in October 2018, but their fight was canceled after Parker withdrew with an illness - which he believes was due to a spider bite.

Chisora recently contacted Parker by way of a video call - where they verbally agreed to collide in May.
