The nearby competition returns to their novice days, when they battled multiple times, winning twice each, yet they’ve never met at an expert level.

Parker has conceivable match-ups against Whyte, Alexander Povetkin, Dereck Chisora and Oleksandr Usyk on his radar, yet every one of the four title contenders are as of now occupied.

“Joseph Parker would joyfully battle any of them. Fa has a nice record – I believe he’s positioned No.6 by the WBO – so if the others are tied up, it may bode well to battle Junior Fa and afterward move into one of those greater worldwide names straightaway.
“Joseph won’t avoid any of them. He’s champing at the bit to get a proper notice of who’s straightaway, when and where.
