Rumour - Parker to return to action in America

Former WBO champion is slated to appear in Atlantic City

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

Former WBO heavyweight champion, New Zealand's Joseph Parker seems to be wasting little time in returning to the ring.

We last saw Parker under the lights at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on March 31st. Parker lost his WBO title via a unanimous decision at the hands of Anthony Joshua. Joshua won a wide decision with scores of 118-110 and 119-109. Although I think it fair to say that those scorecards do not provide an accurate reflection of that fight. Journalists, pundits and fans alike were not short of a comment or two firmly aimed at the referee, Giuseppe Quartarone. Quartarone refused to let Parker fight on the inside, where he was certainly having some success. 

While Parker may have lost the fight, there is no doubt he is still one of the best heavyweights in the world today. But with talks ongoing between Joshua and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder for a fight for the undisputed title, and with all but one of the governing bodies mandatory spots set in stone. Parker is going to have do things the hard way and work his way back up to mandatory contention if he is to reclaim the gold. He is currently ranked #6 by the WBC, #5 by the WBO and #7 by the IBF. 

IntuBoxing has learned that Parker is slated to face Bryant Jennings at the new Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City on August 18th. The venue itself opens its doors on June 28th. 

Jennings too is looking for another crack at a world title. The 33-year-old Philidelphia man has had two shots at gold before. Jennings fought in back to back losing efforts against Wladimir Klitschko at Madison Square Garden in April 2015, before suffering another loss to Luis Ortiz for the 'interim' WBA world crown at the Turning Stone Casino & Resort in Verona, New York in the December of that year. 

Since signing a deal with Top Rank in the middle of 2017, Jennings has reeled off four consecutive wins, picking up the Pennsylvania regional title against Joey Dawejko in April. For Parker, this would mark a return to US soil for the first time in four years. Parker last fought in America in August 2014 stopping Keith Thompson in the third round of a six round bout. 

The fight will be shown on ESPN, Top Ranks Carl Moretti is confident a deal will be concluded shortly.
