From Mike Smith: Former WBO heavyweight belt holder Joseph Parker (25-2, 19 KOs) quickly crushed his 2nd tier opponent Alexander Flores (17-2, 15 KOs) with way of a 3rd round knockout on Saturday night to end his 2-fight losing series at the Horncastle Arena at Christchurch, New Zealand. Enough timing of the stoppage was at 2:51 of around 3. Vowing for a tougher, more rougher, meaner heavy weight, Parker arrived on fire tonight, landing punches with full power on them against an over-matched Flores, also maybe not backing off and playing the finesse game the boxing fans had grown used to seeing .
Parker did a fantastic job of working the body of Flores . The majority of them were to target above the Beltline, although one of rsquo & Parker; s shots strayed low.
In another round, Parker landed a scorching right hand missile to the head of the 28-year-old Flores that bowled him . After he got back to his toes flores was not too happy. Parker then unloaded with a storm of shots that resulted in the fight being stopped.
The triumph for Parker, 26, keeps his hopes alive for a upcoming re match against lsquo & Dillian;rsquo & Your Body snatcher; Whyte, who he lost to with way of a controversial 12 round unanimous decision on July 28 at London, England. The defeat by Parker was his second in a row following lost to IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua within his encounter inside the UK. That was a fight in which Parker was kept besides Joshua. The referee appeared never to understand fighters are allowed to battle the interior. The referee inadvertently helped by pulling Parker away each time he got close enough to throw a punch Joshua win the night. With the referee stopping Parker from fighting close, Joshua, using his height and reach advantage, could comfortably control the fight by the outside.
“I would love to. Listen, my hands is up for this,” Parker stated to Sky Sports about a rematch with Whyte. “he will take care of business and fight the fights he wants, and proper he’s ready, let’s ’s have it on.
If a re match between Parker and Whyte will be to happen in 20-19, it’s possible it’ll must wait until later Dillian faces Joshua at a rematch on April 13 or later in year. It’ll rely how long Joshua wants to wait until giving Whyte his re match. Whyte isn’t going to want to have a speculative fight until afterwards he receives his big payday fight against Joshua. Whyte is currently facing Dereck Chisora on December 22 however & rsquo; s another type of guys. Chisora throws wide punches, is slow, also is a fighter for Whyte compared to Parker.
In the co-feature bout on the Parker vs. Flores card, unbeaten heavyweight contender Junior Fa (16-0, 9 KOs) stayed unbeaten with a 1st round knockout of journeyman Rogelio Omar Rossi (20-7-1, 13 KOs). It was an excellent win for Fa. He wants to step it up though against someone he&rsquo. Parker would be a very good solution for Fa when rsquo & he;s ready to take a stern test this early in his own career.
