An all-Kiwi heavyweight clash goes down on Saturday, Feb. 27, as former WBO champion Joseph Parker meets Junior Fa at the Auckland’s Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, live and exclusively on DAZN in the United States.
Initially, Parker vs Fa were set to meet on February. 27, but the latter heavyweight had to bow out after blood tests revealed that he had a health issue that required surgery.
After losing his belt to Anthony Joshua and his subsequent bout against Dillian Whyte, Parker (27-2, 21 KOs), a native of New Zealand, won three consecutive fights, with all of them coming via stoppage. Most recently, Parker stopped Shawndell Winters in the fifth round of the Mikey Garcia-Jessie Vargas undercard in February. Despite the fact that it will be nearly one year between fights, the 28-year-old Parker is looking to get back in there and settle who is the king of the Kiwis, while making another run at the gold.
