IBF World Heavyweight Mandatory Challenger Joseph Parker fought live in front of a sold out audience at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch.

Fresh from his gruelling 12 round win against Frenchman Carlos Takam, Parker took on Australian contender Solomon Haumono in preparation for his IBF World Title fight.

The Australian prospect took the fight to Parker, pressing forward and trying to trap the Kiwi on the ropes. However Parker's superior accuracy and hand speed kept him out of any real danger.

Mid way through the fourth round Parker unleashed a devastating one-two uppercut combination that sent Haumono tumbling to the canvas from which he would never recover.
