Joyce knocked out Parker and became a contender for Usyk’s title Boxing news

This is reported by Espresso.TV.

On the night of September 25 in Manchester, Joyce knocked out Parker in the 11th round. The Briton became the interim world champion according to the WBO (World Boxing Organization) version and the official contender for the fight with Oleksandr Usyk.

In 2021, the WBO sanctioned Usyk’s fight for the “interim” belt against the organization’s number two ranked Joyce. The fight did not take place because the Ukrainian got the right to fight Anthony Joshua immediately and deprived the Briton of the WBO, WBA (World Boxing Association) and IBF (International Boxing Federation) belts.

Joseph Parker won the WBO title in 2016 thanks to a victory over the American Andy Ruiz. In 2018, Anthony Joshua took the belt from the New Zealander.
