Parker vs. Fury Undercard: Umar Salamov To Face Emil Markic

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised by world class trainer Kevin Barry that his fighter Umar Salamov (22-0) will make his first ring appearance of 2017 on the Joseph Parker-Hughie Fury WBO heavyweight title tilt undercard. The action will take place at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. Barry's stable of fighters also includes Parker.

The 22-year-old Salamov will face Emil Markic (24-1) for the vacant WBO international light heavyweight title that Andre Ward vacated when he defeated Sergey Kovalev to capture the WBO/WBA/IBF titles last November.

If everything goes well, Dean Lonergan of Duco Events is looking to put Salamov on the July 2nd Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn undercard at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. More than 50,000 fans are expected to be in attendance for the WBO welterweight title fight.

Salamov previously held the WBO and IBO youth light heavyweight titles.

Junior Fa is RUBBISH. Salamov is another matter..............he's young, tough and crude but has a lot of upside.
