About

Joseph Parker, took on WBO world number 12 ranked American brawler Brian ‘The Beast’ Minto - the man who in his last fight, forced Shane Cameron’s camp to throw in the towel.

With Parker’s unbeaten reputation on the line and many picked Minto to give the young much-talked about boxer his first big fight lesson, however, the lesson was served by Parker.

taking the American big hitter to the 7th round it was an onslaught of damage throughout all 7 rounds as Minto was sent to Canvastown twice before ending in Round 7.

The night also features a true ‘Battle of the Babes’ grudge match, with stars from reality TV show GC, Jade Louise and DJ Tuini taking their beef with each other out in the ring.
