The Trusts Stadium, Auckland, New Zealand - Up and coming young heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker (7-0, 6KOs) sustained a serious cut to his left eye but still disposed of NZ heavyweight champion Afa Tatupu (9-5) early in the second round of their NZ heavyweight bout tonight.

Parker didn't stick to his game plan of fighting like a big man but instead entered into a Samoan brawl with Tatupu, who took a pounding, but also tagged Parker above his left eye.

The injury so bad the ringside doctor almost called off the fight. Bleeding everywhere, trainer Kevin Barry later said the doctor gave Parker one round to get the job done because of the severity of the eye injury, a real shocker which may take some time to heal.

Parker though now has one of the two NZ Boxing belts, after knocking out Tatupu with a flurry of punches early in the second round, and the referee ending it at 1.55 remaining in the second round.

So Parker goes home a winner with a second round KO and will soon head back to Los Angeles to see a plastic surgeon about the eye.
