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.
