Don’t miss your chance to be a part of New Zealand sporting history!
New Zealand has never had a World Heavyweight Champion, let alone hosted a World Heavyweight Title fight.
Joseph Parker’s “Road to the Title” culminates at Auckland’s Vector Arena where 10,000 passionate fans will come together for the single most electric sporting event ever held in New Zealand.
Bringing his undefeated record (29-0) to the bout, Mexican Heavyweight, Andy ‘The Destroyer’ Ruiz believes he is primed to live up to his name and plans to dismantle our Kiwi phenomenon in front of his home crowd.
A magnificent undercard will feature world ranked, IBF #2 and WBO #4 Welterweight Jeff Horn whose recent win over the German Champion Rico Mueller has moved him within contention of his own world title shot in the near future.
Join New Zealand boxing fans and the world as they tune in to see if Joseph Parker will fulfill his quest to win the ultimate prize in boxing, the World Heavyweight Title!
