Parker set to face Fa this month, with both ranked highly by the WBO.
Former world Heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is back in action in February, up against unbeaten prospect Junior Fa, as he looks to continue something of a knockout streak and force bigger fights later in the year.
Joining the show with Dean Whyte and Chris Ridgway, esteemed coach Kevin Barry, who has been in Joe Parker's corner for seven years, said the team were looking for a big knockout win on Feb 27th.
In joveial manner, Barry said the plan was to 'punch him several times, unless we can punch him really well once', although moved onto pay credit to Fa, who is highly ranked by the WBO.
The fight has already been rescheduled once, as Fa suffered an injury, but now the collision course is happening, and Barry believes this could be the fight to propel a clash with highly ranked British fighter Joe Joyce. After beating Dubois in his last outing, Joyce found himself in the top 2 ranking in the division, a spot Barry believes should be made contestable for the winner of Parker Fa.
Barry gave an insight into life being 'back to normal' in New Zealand, while the majority of the world is still under restrictions due to the pandemic.
