WBO dismiss Joseph Parker v Hughie Fury scoring complaint

Parker v Fury 18/10/2017

The World Boxing Organisation will not consider re-scoring the Joseph Parker v Hughie Fury heavyweight title fight following a complaint by the latter’s promoter Mick Hennessy.

Parker defeated Fury on September 23 at Manchester Arena and Hennessy was upset by the manner of the three ringside judges’ cards on the night.

It seemed Fury did enough to potentially take a close decision over Parker, although the New Zealander retained his title and moved on to bigger fights in 2018.

This left Hennessy fuming at the WBO, who announced their official ruling on the matter recently.
