Joseph Parker v Sherman "The Tank" Williams

You can’t afford to miss New Zealand Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker finally getting his chance tonight to try to knock outSherman ‘The Tank’ Williams -

(W36 (KO19) | L13 | D2) the vastly more experienced fighter who has been in the ring with the likes of Evander Holyfield and has never ever been knocked out.

In an unusually bold statement from the 22 year old, the supremely confident Parker declared yesterday he would knock out The Tank tonight!

The taller, younger, faster Parker will have the biggest test of his career against the much heavier Bahamian, with boxing experts predicting the fight will go deep into 10 rounds.
