Breazeale Ready To Replace Fury - Fight Parker on Late Notice

Big heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale's put his hand up to fight Joseph Parker for his WBO heavyweight belt in Auckland on May 6.

Duco Events need to find a top-15 ranked fighter to replace Hughie Fury after the British boxer pulled out of the bout on Saturday due to a suspicious back injury.

Breazeale's ranked sixth by the WBO, and has taken to social media saying: "I'll go to New Zealand. Send the contract, I'll sign it right now."

The Californian's record is 18-1 with his only loss coming against Brit Anthony Joshua in London last June. Breazeale is only one of two fighters to last seven rounds with Joshua. The other is British contender Dillian Whyte.

It would be a dangerous fight for Parker to accept considering he would have spent a significant amount of time preparing to fight a fighter of Fury's style. Breazeale also is an established and experienced campaigner in the heavyweight division.

In February, Breazeale came off the floor to score a knockout win over Parker's close friend and gym stablemate, Izu Ugonoh. Both Parker and Ugonoh are trained by veteran coach Kevin Barry. After that event, Breazeale got in a physical altercation with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a hotel lobby. Breazeale claims Wilder attacked him and has since filed a lawsuit. 

Breazeale is willing to give Parker the immediate opportunity to avenge Ugonoh's defeat.

"Joseph Parker; You need an opponent? Let's do this. Defend your belt against a real contender. Test yourself to see what kind of champion you are. I'm ranked #6, so the WBO will definitely sign off on this. I'll go to New Zealand. Plus, you have the opportunity to avenge Izu's loss. Send the contract, I'll sign it right now," Breazeale stated.

[quote=juggernaut666;17615647]washington is not the more effective fighter,hes breazeales less dangerous sparring partner...and always has been.
