Joseph Parker vs Andy Ruiz Jr Moves Closer
New Zealand is about to have a world title fight. Joseph Parker is expected to face Andy Ruiz Jr for the vacant WBO title on the 10th of December. We are hearing the fight could also end up being on HBO, as part of the GGG vs Jacobs broadcast.
Team Parker have acted wise. Parker was originally going to challenge Anthony Joshua for the IBF title, in a fight not many gave Joseph a shot in. Instead Parker will now face Ruiz Jr for the vacant belt, in a bout he is widely expected to win. If Parker does win the vacant WBO belt he will truly cash in with a future unification bout with AJ. And he will also have more time to further develop his skills. Only dilemma is that AJ Is still developing also.
An announcement for Parker vs Ruiz Jr could be within the next fortnight. Expect Arum to make the trip to New Zealand.
