Saturday June 13th at Arena Manawatu
Witness New Zealand Heavyweight boxing sensation Joseph Parker as he takes his next step on the Burger King Road to the Title in Palmerston North on Saturday 13 June.
23 year old Parker is the youngest boxer in the World Top 10, and aims to stand on top of the boxing world within the next two years. He'll be coming into this fight off the back of a three week training camp with the Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, Wladimir Klitschko, and is sure to be showcasing some new skills in the ring.
Parker is set to fight 12 rounds against a man ominously known across Europe as ‘The Scorpion’. German Heavyweight Champion Yakup Saglam arrives in New Zealand next month leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. The 6’4” Turkish born boxer has 34 wins in 37 fights with 31 coming by way of knockout.
In addition to seeing the New Zealand Heavyweight Champion, guests will be treated to an undercard featuring some exciting talent from around the world, including:
- Australian #1 Welterweight Jeff ‘The Hornet’ Horn vs Ghanaian #1 Richmond Djarbeng
- The Brown Buttabean vs Palmy's toughest Lordly Kaiuha
- Polish heavyweight Izu Ugonoh
Plus more fighters to be announced.
