    Joseph Parker is determined to avoid being the next heavyweight boxer to suffer a shock defeat

    Joseph Parker is determined to avoid being the next heavyweight boxer to suffer a shock defeat


    Parker will fight 39-year-old Australian Alex Leapai in the United States this afternoon, as he continues his push for another title fight.

    Following Anthony Joshua's recent loss to Andy Ruiz, Parker says he's not taking Leapai lightly.

    He says you can never look past a heavyweight opponent as they always maintain their power.
