Joyce to fight Parker for title shot in Manchester
Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker will go head to head in an eagerly-awaited heavyweight clash at Manchester’s AO Arena on September 24.
Olympic silver medallist Joyce faces Parker to decide who will become mandatory world title challenger to Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk, who fight in Saudi Arabia later this month.
Briton Joyce is unbeaten in 14 professional bouts, while former world champion Parker from New Zealand has won 30 of his 32 contests.
“This fight has been a long time in the making,” said Joyce, following the announcement by promoter Frank Warren and his Queensbury Promotions.
