Joseph Parker’s quest to return to the top of the world heavyweight boxing rankings will begin at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Saturday, December 15.
The former WBO world heavyweight champion will headline the night, which features many of New Zealand’s – and Canterbury’s – finest professional fighters.
Parker’s opponent for his first fight on New Zealand soil in 18 months is the formidable American, Alexander "The Great" Flores with an exceptional record of 17-1-1, his only loss was to Former IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin, a fight he took on only two weeks' notice. With an 80% knockout rate, the American is seizing the opportunity to end Parkers career and make his way to the big time.
The action-packed card will also feature Canterbury star Bowyn Morgan, current IBO Asia Pacific super welterweight champion, along-with fellow Cantabrian, former Commonwealth representative, light heavyweight Reece Papuni.
In what promises to be a thrilling female contest, a feisty Megan McLennan takes on current New Zealand Muay Thai champion Michaela Jenkins in a five-round professional contest.
