Boxing: Joseph Parker, Junior Fa ready for local clash

From Checkpoint, 6:26 pm on 29 October 2020

Kiwi boxers Joseph Parker and Junior Fa are ramping up preparations as their heavyweight match-up looms closer.

With a date clash with the All Blacks now ruled out - today it was announced the fight has been pushed back a day to Saturday, December 12.

While 24 hours is not much, every day is particularly important for Parker - with longtime trainer Kevin Barry just one week out of quarantine having arrived from America.

Clay Wilson has more.
