Joseph Parker has weighed-in at 109.25kg [240.8-pounds] for his heavyweight showdown with Mexican America Alexander Flores at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Saturday night.
Parker comes in almost half a kilogram lighter than in his most recent outing against Dillian Whyte in London in July.
“This is the best Joseph has looked all year,” Team Parker head trainer Kevin Barry said.
“Joseph knows what is on the line in this fight. His work in training has been tremendous. He is ready.”
Parker’s opponent, Mexican-American Alexander Flores tipped the scales at 107.95kg – 1.3kg lighter than Parker [237.9-pounds].
“The world will know who Alexander ‘The Great’ Flores is come Saturday night,” Flores said.
The fight between Canterbury’s Bowyn Morgan and Fiji’s Sebastian ‘Sniper’ Singh will now take place at middleweight after Singh missed the super-welterweight limit.
The contest will still be for the Pro Box super-welterweight title, however only Morgan is eligible to win the belt.
