Frank Warren and Queensberry promotions bring us a mouth-watering show at Manchester’s AO arena with a heavyweight match-up between Joe Joyce of Great Britain and Joseph Parker of New Zealand as the main event.
Two top ten ranked heavyweights with all governing bodies mean this is a world-class heavyweight match-up and the best we can get outside of what we’ve seen in the last few years with Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk. This is a genuine 50-50 match-up.
Parker is a former WBO world champion and is no stranger to British shores, he has boxed Hughie Fury, Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora, twice. Now Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce.
The adopted Morecambe bay man is trained by Andy Lee and has been regularly posting training and trash-talking clips with Tyson Fury in the build-up to Saturday. Parker says his style and mentality have completely changed for the better as he looks to use his vast experience over Joyce to get the win.
‘The Juggernaut’ Joyce stopped Christian Hammer in July in just four rounds and wants to prove he is a top 5 heavyweight with a win over the New Zealander which would be the best win on his CV ahead of stopping Daniel Dubois in round 10 of their 2020 bout due to an eye injury.
