Joseph Parker vs Hughie Fury Is Off
In horrible news for boxing fans, the WBO president confirmed today that Joseph Parker’s WBO title defence against Hughie Fury has been cancelled.
Here is what you need to know:
WBO President tweeted the following
“As of today, it seems there will be no WBO Heavyweight World Title fight in New Zealand”
This was followed by another tweet:
“It seems the problem lies within Team Fury”
Joseph Parker’s team are furious. They claim the Fury's told the WBO Hughie is now injured.
Parker will now be allowed a voluntary defence. He’s allowed to fight anyone in the top 50. Parker may now move straight to a Bellew bout for the WBO HW Title.
Parker is willing to fight Bellew in the UK, which is a monster pay day for both fighters.
