ICYMI: Parker Claims Points Victory Over Fury

share on:

Joseph Parker has retained his WBO heavyweight belt, after his majority points victory over Hughie Fury .

The New Zealand boxer was on the front foot from the onset , attacking aggressively and got 118-110 scoring from two judges, with the last judge scoring it a 114-114 draw.

Tyson Fury, who was previous holder of the belt, was unhappy with the scoring. As he watched his cousin lose from the ringside.

Hughie Fury tried to frustrate Parker with his elusive movement and probing jab, but the champion came out in the second round with jabs of his own.

Fury stopped the champion in his tracks with a jolting uppercut in the fourth, but a flurry of punches and a head clash left him with a bloody eye.

Parker was on top in the fifth round and both boxers traded punches in the sixth round, with Fury standing his ground.

The Kiwi came out firing on all cylinders in the ninth, after battling with Fury in the seventh and eighth round.

Parker retained his belt, after a strong end to the bout. But many think Fury deserved more than the 118-110 scoring from two of the judges.
