Joseph Parker announces next fight

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.

"After Epic Sports won the purse bid for my IBF elimination bout against Dillian Whyte with a bid of $1.5 million, double what Whyte's own promoter, Eddie Hearn [of Matchroom Boxing] bid, I was expecting Whyte and his promoter to run away from the fight, but I didn't expect from them to be such jerks about it", said Pulev of Whyte's decision, as per Boxing Scene.

Both fighters have just one defeat on their records, against world champion Anthony Joshua. "It came out of nowhere - it's not one that we planned".

He said: "The last time I was here it was a great experience fighting in Cardiff". Let's not forget, how could we, that Parker was the first man to ever stretch the imperious, impenetrable Anthony Joshua to a full 12 rounds. I'm looking forward to going back to training, and burning off the pies I've eaten in New Zealand. He's got a big mouth and says some amusing things - and he's also highly entertaining in the ring.

Catalan leader calls for talks with new Spain PM

We didn't get the result but I feel it's a great time to come back. "I know it took a lot of hard work from my team to get this over the line".

The aggressive Whyte (23-1, 17 KO), who was stopped by Joshua in December 2015 in a far more bruising fight, believes it is something he will regret. The event will take place at the O2 Arena in London on pay-per-view in the United Kingdom.

If Parker comes over in the same polite, respectful manner as he did against Joshua and managers to defy the expectations in beating Dillian Whyte then he establishes a fan-base in Britain and the potential for even bigger money fights.

Parker, on the other hand, will see this as his chance of redemption and a simple route back to the top of the heavyweight scene - Jennings would have been an easier payday, a smaller payday mind, with less reward for the former WBO titlist but a win over Whyte unlocks a whole plethora of things not least the coveted ranking positions. Parker is ranked as high as fifth with the WBO.
