Joseph Parker is now a top-ranked world title contender for the first time. The 24-year-old Kiwi-Samoan’s trainer Kevin Barry says his young charge was now rated No 1 with the ‪#‎WBO‬. Parker does not automatically become the mandatory challenger to WBO/WBA champ Tyson Fury and would have to fight No 2 ranked Anthony Joshua to determine who claims the right for a shot at the title. The two other champs in the division alongside Fury are Americans Deontay Wilder (‪#‎WBC‬) and Charles Martin (‪#‎IBF‬). Parker is ranked 7th with the WBC & IBF and 11th with the ‪#‎WBA‬.‪#‎TeamParker‬ ‪#‎NesianSports‬
