Rumble In Paradise, Joseph Parker vs Jason Bergman
Sat 23 January 2016
Faleata Sports Complex, Samoa
A favourite son of Samoa, Joseph Parker took on a southpaw for the first time in his professional career in his parents motherland when he fought in Apia Samoa.
Bergman proved a tough opponent as the southpaw took Parker deep into the 8th round before finally stopped by the fast, heavy hands of Parker.
As a stepping stone in the 'Road to the Title' Bergman's resilience proved an important experience for things to come for Parker.
