Dillian Whyte Confronts Joseph Parker Ringsideā€

Tyson Fury's cousin will fight the New Zealand for his strap and he enjoyed a straightforward tune-up fight at the Copper Box on Saturday.

HUGHIE FURY won an an easy warm-up fight before sitting down ringside with his September opponent and WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker for a chat and a cuddle.

Fury and Parker were originally set to fight in Auckland in May in the mandatory challenge to Parker's WBO belt but Fury pulled out two weeks before the bout citing a back injury as the reason.

"In the contact is what we want and David (Higgins) has worked very hard to get the contract sorted and now that it's ready and the date is confirmed, we're looking forward to going over to the United Kingdom and making a statement and putting on a great show", Parker said.

The Parker fight will happen on September 23 in Manchester and finally put an end to nearly a year of planning for the contest, which could see Hughie follow cousin Tyson as a world champion. I'm ready. Let's do it. I will be ready. I want it. You need to fight someone decent. The 22-year-old Fury hadn't seen action since April 2016 and wanted to get some ring time.

Higgins appeared in the ring and introduced him to Whyte who said: "Listen, I'm ready go go man". They will meet again on Tuesday at a press conference in Manchester to kick off promotion for their September 23rd clash at the Manchester Arena.
