Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker will face off in a heavyweight main event this weekend at the AO Arena in Manchester.
Joyce is 14-0 unbeaten as a pro after beating 13 of his opponents. Before turning pro, the Brit won silver at the Rio 2016 Olympics, but this time he’s aiming for gold.
The winner of the 37-year-old’s clash with 30-year-old Parker is crowned interim WBO Heavyweight Champion. New Zealand’s Parker previously held the official version of the title, losing it to Anthony Joshua in 2018 in one of just two defeats as a professional.
In the co-main event, Amanda Serrano is defending her featherweight titles against Sarah Mahfoud and is trying to regain momentum after losing a split decision to undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor earlier this year. A win for Serrano should set the Puerto Rican up for another meeting with Taylor.
