British heavyweight Dillian Whyte faces off against New Zealand’s Joseph Parker with both fighters hoping to secure a future world title bout match against Anthony Joshua.
Whyte was beaten in a seventh-round stoppage at the hands of Joshua in December 2015 while Parker failed in a bid to unify the world heavyweight division in a points-defeat at the Principality Stadium earlier this year.

On Parker’s performance against Anthony Joshua: “It was cowardly.”
“Six or seven rounds into a fight, if you’re in the home fighter’s country against a world champion and a golden boy, you know you’re behind on the scorecards, there comes a time when you’ve got to go after it.
“I feel that he was too much of a coward to make that decision. He had waited for that opportunity for his whole life.”
“I’m going to knock him out earlier and I’m going to say, ‘And what AJ? And what?’
“I think if I knock him out earlier, it will send a statement.”
Samoan Joseph Parker aims “to expose the reckless style'” of Brixton bruiser Dillian Whyte on Saturday at the O2 Arena and has prepared “to go into the trenches” against the Londoner. Parker is hell-bent on earning a rematch with three-belt world title holder Anthony Joshua next year, and on Friday assured the Telegraph that there will be no shyness this time around.
The heavyweight division is red hot right now, replete with questions on who can reign supreme in a time of the huge stadium fights and massive paydays. Joshua will defend his three world title belts on September 22 at Wembley Stadium against Russian Alexander Povetkin. On Friday he announced a new three-year deal with promoter Eddie Hearn and Sky Sports, and is intent on becoming an undisputed champion next year against the only other belt holder, American Deontay Wilder.
Yet there is so much at stake for a group of heavyweights all vying for supremacy, with every contest at present looking to meet Joshua in the sport’s clear route to riches and glory. The Whyte-Parker victor on Saturday, should either man win emphatically, will place themselves into pole position to challenge for the belts, while the loser will face a long rebuilding process. Waiting in the wings is Tyson Fury, once the king of three belts himself, making a new bid after 30 months in exile.
