Whyte: Parker fight 'fell from the sky'

10 Junio, 2018, 02:02 | Author: Thomas Hicks

Joseph Parker will face Englishman Dillian Whyte in a heavyweight clash in London next month, a turn of events which could hardly have worked out better for the New Zealander. "I'm bang up for this", Whyte told Sky Sports after the fight was announced. You could have taken the fight but you are the one who pulled out, not me.

Whyte had been embroiled in a boxing politics row having been ordered to fight final eliminators with both Luis Ortiz for the WBC title and Kubrat Pulev for the IBF strap, with the WBC's request for an eliminator that particularly stinging for Whyte.

"The old mid-drift is going to get touched. but with all respect he's a proper gentleman but this is the fight game and we are going to do the business".

"Outside Joshua-Wilder this is the biggest fight in the heavyweight division.", Hearn said.

Parker, who had been linked to a bout with American Bryant Jennings, said his performance against Joshua proves his worth. That pretty much speaks for itself. I'm looking forward to going back to training, and burning off the pies I've eaten in New Zealand.

"Whatever happens, I'm not going to cry about it because there are only two champions now instead of three and they are probably going to fight eachother. I know it took a lot of hard work from my team to get this over the line".

The last time I was here, it was a great experience fighting in Cardiff in front of all those people and all those in the build-up and even though I didn't get the result I wanted, I feel like it's a great time to be back.

Whyte's last fight was a brutal sixth round KO of Australian Lucas Browne in London, a week before Parker became the first fighter to go the distance with Joshua though losing a unanimous points decision.

His promoter David Higgins had threatened to withdraw Parker from the WBO, WBA and IBF title fight with Joshua over concerns surrounding the officials, and he added: "We would like a rematch one day, perhaps with a different referee".

The common link through Joshua is highly marketable, especially given Parker's hard-eatrned profile in the United Kingdom over the a year ago.
