New Zealand’s Joseph Parker will defend his World Boxing Organisation (WBO) heavyweight title against Britain’s Hughie Fury in Auckland on May 6, his promoters said on Wednesday. It will be Parker’s first defence of the belt he won in December after it was vacated by Tyson Fury, Hughie’s cousin. Both young fighters are undefeated, with 25-year-old Parker boasting a 22-0 record, 18 by knockout, and Fury, 22, at 20-0, with 10 knockouts.
