The heavyweight division dominates the scene this weekend when it comes to boxing.

At the Manchester Arena, on Saturday evening, the WBO world champion Joseph Parker will be defending his belt against the unbeaten British heavyweight Hughie Fury.

The defence will be Parker?s, who hails from New Zealand, second defence.

The fight has all the makings of a decent one with Parker unbeaten in 23 fights taking on the challenger, Fury, who is unbeaten in 20 fights.

For the winner, there is the chance to move onto, perhaps, unifying the titles.

However, if Parker hangs on to his title we could be seeing a lot more of the WBO champion in London.

Parker is of the opinion that London is most definitely the place to be when it comes to heavyweight boxing, remarking to the media,

‘Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Dereck Chisora, there are a lot of fights to be made here.

‘If all goes well we will be spending a lot more time here in London. This is the spot for now.

‘I see this as the place where heavyweights are booming at the moment.’

Parker prepared for this fight in a training camp in Las Vegas but has been fine tuning his preparations in David Haye?s gym in London, as for his defence of his WBO crown against Hughie Fury, Parker had this to say,

‘Hughie’s style is he likes to use the ring, move around.

‘I can move, adjust and chase down. I’m going to go hunt him. I will go hunting, catch him and do the business.’

The fight can be seen live via You-Tube subscription, but who is your money on.

Can Hughie spring a surprise or will the Kiwi heavyweight be just a little too good?
