Joseph Parker is Open To Musical Collaboration With Tyson Fury

According to former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, he's open to a musical collaboration with Tyson Fury, who has the WBC world title.

Parker's career is on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the boxer has showed he has plenty of strings to his bow during the ongoing lockdown.

The New Zealander has been part of a few uplifting videos while in quarantine.


In one video, Parker was strutting his stuff while lip-syncing to The Foundations' popular son Build Me up Buttercup, while demonstrating some skills with a guitar and on the piano.

In that particular video, he was assisted by Fury, Hall of Fame ring announcer Michael Buffer, and others.

Parker is not ruling out the scenario of providing the instrumentals if Fury breaks into another post-fight song.

"Maybe for one of his [Fury] fights I could play an instrument and he could sing after the fight, that might be a bit of fun. I love to dance, I play music around the house and dance and sing. Just as with boxing, you have to have good rhythm when you are dancing. Maybe after my boxing career I can do something with dancing, who knows," Parker told Stats Perform.

"I work with Kerry Russell, who does the videography and editing, he has some great ideas. At the start of isolation, it was something new and strange and a lot of people were down about what was happening. We wanted to put smiles on faces and give people something to laugh at.

"The goal was to make people smile, we achieved that and it also makes us smile, it makes us happy that people are able to brighten up their day. At the moment we are not working on anything. Once we get ideas into our heads, we'll give it a go. People are expecting big things now with the videos, funny or feel good. At the moment nothing, but hopefully something comes into mind soon. In times like this, I feel if we post something it should be quality over quantity. Something that uplifts, or something to brighten your day and take your mind away from what is happening."

[QUOTE=James Hunt;20501239]Parker needs to get off of Fury's dick. If I was his promotor, he'd be behaving the same as pbc guys, only allowed to praise and mingle with guys from the same stable. :D[/QUOTE] Softass Giant ought to challenge…

Parker needs to be relevant that's why he is frolicking around Fury.

I've enjoyed watching Parker's silly videos.

The vitriol against Parker being a decent non confrontational person is obscene here. He just wants to have some fun with his friend like any normal person and why shouldn't he be friends with Fury? They're both cool guys with…
