WBO Champ to wear a $10,000 uniform

Excited Joseph Parker: “Look Good, Fight Good, Feel Good”

WBO Champ to wear a $10,000 uniform, which includes crystals, suede and python skin to the ring tomorrow night.


It cost some good money, I’m not sure how much it cost but it cost quite a bit.

The uniform is made in the UK from a company called Fight Label so they’re the ones who do Joshua’s uniform and other big fighters like Amir Khan and so on so I feel, well Taylor Barry was able to find them, and get in contact, and now I feel this uniform is next level.

It was stuck in customs and it came here from the UK, we were a bit nervous it would get stuck and not get here on time, now we have it, I feel good. I’ve tried it on, everything fits good.

When you put it on and you look flash, you’re going to fight flash

If you fight flash, you’re going to be dominant, and when you’re dominant, explosive!

We usually weigh-in in the afternoon and when I weigh-in in the afternoon I sort of feel like my weight is quite good at that time but this is the first time we’re having it at night-time, I feel at night time you gain a bit more weight so I’ll probably be a little bit heavier. Kev says it doesn’t really matter, as long as you’re feeling sharp, feeling good and feeling strong. It doesn’t really matter.

I’m glad this fight is going to be shown in the UK because not only are the doubters going to watch it but the other fighters like Bellew, Joshua and Fury so l look forward to putting on a dominant performance.
