After winning the WBO version of the world heavyweight title, Joseph Parker will be making a first defence of the title he won in Auckland.

Already we?ve reported on the fact that Parker could be facing any of the three boxers listed below:

? David Price
? Hughie Fury


? Jarrell Miller.

Well it seems that Hughie Fury, cousin of Tyson Fury, could be the man to climb into the ring against the unbeaten Parker.

Hughie, who has a record that reads 20-0 with 10 wins coming by way of knockout, has implied that negotiations are in progress to seal the fight.

If the fight happens then Parker, in my opinion, would be the big favourite.

But if Parker were to beat Hughie could it open the door for Parker to fight Tyson Fury as he seeks to avenge the possible defeat of his brother?
