Big news from NZ this morning. Joseph Parker vs Dimitrenko has been set for the 1st of October. The bout will take place in Manukau City.
Now the common question being asked is why is Joseph Parker not fighting Anthony Joshua next? Well it’s simple. They are fighting. But it won’t be until January or February.
The IBF will force a purse bid in November if a deal isn’t made between both teams (both have wealthy backers). (Presuming Parker defeats Dimitrenko & Anthony Joshua defeats Stiverne/Pulev in November).
Joshua & Parker will face off, but both have interim bouts to contend with. It will be interesting to see how Parker deals with an opponent as big as Dimitrenko is. It will also be interesting to see how Anthony Joshua deals with Stiverne or Pulev, both will come to fight and will likely last rounds.
In other Heavyweight news, some gossip circulating is that Briggs vs Haye could be in trouble. Others are saying Haye may elect to face Lucas Browne next instead of Briggs. Haye vs Browne is an awesome fight.
Calling Tyson Fury? Calling Klitschko? Come on guys. It’s time both teams let the fans and the public know just what is going on. Still no date locked in. It’s not hard to release a one word paragraph. It seems most fans are over this fight already, since it’s taken way to long.
