The new Zealander Joseph Parker (22-0, 18 KO’s) has won world championship belts in the heavyweight division, defeating American Andy Ruiz, Jr. (29-1, 19 KO’s).

Early on the morning of Saturday, the heavyweight division has got another world champion. At stake is the fight between Joseph Parker and Andy Raisom, which was held in Auckland new Zealand, there was a belt of the world champion under version WBO.

Recall that this regalia became vacant after the controversial Briton Tyson fury has been suspended and lost their titles. The world Boxing organization has sanctioned the fight for the vacant belt between the promising Parker, who made his good name in the United States Ruiz.

A favorite of confrontation was considered the owner of the ring Parker, and though with difficulty, but he managed to confirm this status. The battle began with pressure from Ruiz, a small American constantly went forward, intending to go to a comfortable distance. Overall, the start-up rounds could give it to Ruiz. In the middle of the confrontation to the work involved, the darling of local fans. The result was broken near the right eye American.

Despite this, the guest of the ring did not lose heart and continued to look for his chance. The ending of the battle again you can give in favor of Ruiz, but it didn’t help him in the scoring. The outcome of the battle, which turned into a real battle of wills and strength, was destined to decide the judges. No wonder that they gave the victory to the local fighter. The new Zealander, Parker became the new world champion by a majority decision of the judges 115-113 twice and 114-114.

After that, the heavyweight division, followed by Wilder and Joshua has found another champion. In this connection I would like to say that the age Wladimir Klitschko is unlikely to have time to return the belt that belonged to him to defeat Tyson fury, who in turn so foolishly squandered them.
