JOE JOYCE VS JOSEPH PARKER
The undefeated WBO number one will be facing off against Joseph Parker for the Interim World Title in what promises to be an explosive contest between the two heavy hitters.
After the fight was subject to a last-minute cancellation in Summer, we are finally getting the chance to see the pivotal matchup.
Joyce claims to have the best chin in the heavyweight division, although the Kiwi will likely be his biggest test to date. He is aiming to propel himself to be first on the list for a world title shot and maintains Parker will not be stopping him in his tracks.
Our man has a perfect record, 14 wins, 13 coming via KO. The highlight of these wins came against Daniel Dubois, where someone’s ‘0’ had to go.
Parker comes into the bout with a record 30-2, with his only two losses coming against formidable opponents in Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte.
SOL DACRES VS DOMINIC AKINLADE
Up-and-comer Solomon Dacres will be throwing down with Dominic Akinlade over ten rounds for an English Title.
In an impressive amateur spell, Sol won a gold medal at the 2017 National Championships. He then went on to link up with Team GB. This speaks volumes of his potential to make waves in the heavyweight division and climb the rankings.
Having spent a lot of time training and sparring with top competitors such as Anthony Joshua and Joe Joyce, Sol is under no illusion about the drive it takes to get to the very top.
He has started his professional career as he intends to go on, with a perfect 4-0 record.
Although confident in his abilities, he takes each bout as it comes, learning and progressing from them.
Sol will be hopeful this contest will bolster his credentials in the division so he can push on with his pursuit of the top rankings.
