About

New Zealand Heavyweight Champion, Joseph Parker kicked off his year back on home soil, taking on American challenger Jason Pettaway, at the Vodafone Events Centre, Auckland on March 5th.

Jason Pettaway was on a 6-fight winning streak before it all came to an abrupt end at the hands of Joseph Parker. Pettaways record of 17-1 did not take long to adjust to 17-2 as he visited the canvas at Vodaphone Events Centre.

Pettaway proved yet another small speedbump in Josephs road to a title shot in what can only be described as an exciting new Heavyweight division.
