Joseph Parker retains WBO heavyweight title
    2017-September-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JOSEPH PARKER prevented the Fury family from reclaiming a world heavyweight title by beating Hughie Fury by a majority decision Saturday, with the judges rewarding the New Zealander’s attacking approach in an uneventful fight.

Parker failed to land many clean punches but was never in danger against Fury, who came with a game plan of negating Parker’s power with his movement and foot speed and then counterattacking.

Two judges scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Parker. The other judge scored it 114-114.

“I felt I won, put on the pressure,” Parker said. “It was a close fight, but I felt I came out on top.”

It was the second successful defense of his belt, leaving Parker (24-0) to look ahead to a potential fight against WBA and IBF champion Anthony Joshua. Parker’s promoter, Dave Higgins, said the fight could be arranged for the summer of 2018 at a big stadium in Britain.

“I don’t care who I fight next, everyone and anyone,” said Parker, who was fighting in the U.K. for the first time and plans for more fights here.

Hughie was attempting to match the achievement of his cousin, Tyson, who beat Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to win the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.
