DEREK CHISORA has defiantly refused to hang up his boxing gloves and roared ‘f*** retirement’ as he already plots his return.
Chisora in May was left raging after losing Joseph Parker by split-decision, in a fight where he scored a knockdown in the opening ten seconds.
But in the rematch back in Manchester the British veteran could have no such arguments following a one-sided defeat.
Chisora was floored three times and looked on the brink of a brutal stoppage on several occasions.
But the resilient Londoner came back with enough to convince his corner and referee Howard Foster to let the action continue.
It resulted in a 12th career loss for Chisora, who Parker admitted should now consider retirement.
But the man himself has other ideas, so much so that he is planning to return in around six months time.

The former world title challenger, 37, kept up his post-fight tradition of sharing a Five Guys burger with his opponent.
It is the second time he has toasted to a cheeseburger with New Zealander Parker, 29, who boxed in the UK for the fifth time.
After the win, he said: “Derek always comes for war, he was one tough guy and never stopped coming forward until the end.
“I felt a lot stronger. It was important to start strong and not be negative from the beginning. You can see there are improvements to be made.
“Derek Chisora is a credit to the sport of boxing. The crowd went mental when he walked out. They just want to support him.”
Despite coming into the fight with 11 losses, Chisora’s unpredictable personality and ruthless aggression makes him a headline act.
But after the loss, Parker admitted he would like to see it be Chisora’s last.
He said: “Personally I’d like to see him walk away. He has given boxing everything, but that’s his decision.”
