Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker which will face each other this weekend at the AO Arena in Manchester.
The fighters now have more motivation for the win in the form of the WBO Interim Title. It should, in theory, guarantee the victor a title shot in their next fight.
Joyce is unbeaten as a professional – but with only 14 fights at age 36, some say he’s not been stepped up often enough. Still, 13 KOs and an Olympic silver medal (potentially gold pending investigation) speak for themselves. Many have tried to stop ‘The Juggernaut’ coming forward in the ring – few have succeeded.
Parker, on the other hand, has taken all challenges going. He previously won the vacant WBO belt in a fight with Andy Ruiz Jr, completing a couple of defences before losing it to Anthony Joshua. He lost to Dillian Whyte immediately after but has been racking up wins ever since and is looking to reach his peak under new trainer, Andy Lee.
