Parker set to fight Fury in Manchester on 23rd September.

The fight will be the Kiwi’s second title defence. If successful, Hughie will be the second Fury to wear the WBO belt – his more famous cousin, Tyson Fury,  took the belt from Wladimir Klitschko after beating him in November 2015.

Parker then picked up the belt after Tyson had vacted the belt due to inactivity after beating Mexico’s Andy Ruiz on points in December 2016. Joseph’s first title defence was a laboured win over Razvan Cojanu in May of this year.
