Boxing Fight: Joseph Parker taunts Joe Joyce by saying that the crowd will be behind him

Boxing Fight: Joe Joyce’s heavyweight challenger Joseph Parker has taunted him by telling the British fighter that some of the spectators at Manchester’s AO Arena will be rooting for him.

The two square off in a highly anticipated matchup on Saturday, and the victor advances to a 2023 world title opportunity.

Although Joyce, a native of London, is the opponent, most of his fights have taken place in the city, and this will be his first appearance in the Manchester arena.

Parker, a native of New Zealand, will be aiming for his fourth straight victory at the arena, and because he has spent most of the past 18 months living in Morecambe, he believes a sizable Lancashire fan base, including his “brother” Tyson Fury, will be rooting for him this weekend.

“That is my arena. Three wins, Hughie (Fury), Derek (Chisora) and Derek again, so I’m going to make it four,” Parker (30-2, 21KOs) told the PA news agency.
