According to promoter Dean Lonergen, Kiwi-Samoan heavyweight Joseph Parker will target the winner of the upcoming title clash between IBF world champion Charles Martin and Parker’s British rival Anthony Joshua, which is scheduled for 9 April at London’s O2 Arena. Parker is unbeaten over 18 fights with 16 KO’s. Duco Events are yet to announce Parker’s next opponent but it is scheduled for April. Duco want to move Parker into a mandatory position for a title fight this year.
Parker is currently ranked No.1 with the WBO, No 6 with the WBA and IBF and No 11 with the WBA. Joshua (15-0, 15 KO’s) is an Olympic gold medal winner and has been fast tracked to a world title shot. Martin captured the vacant IBF title last month with a third round TKO of Czar Glazkov in Brooklyn, New York. Read more.
