SKY TV is proud to announce that a deal has been reached with Duco Events to screen Joseph Parker’s huge comeback fight with the heavy hitting and highly respected UK boxer, Dillian Whyte on Sunday July 29.
The highly anticipated fight will see Joseph Parker return to the ring for the first time since his heavyweight world title loss to Anthony Joshua in March. Parker’s next opponent has drawn widespread admiration in the boxing world for not shying away from a tough opponent. Both fighters have just one loss on their record, both to Anthony Joshua.
Parker has previously commented that this fight is a 50/50 and that he will have to adopt a more ruthless attitude to get the victory. Interestingly, both fighters are the same height and have near identical records. Parker is 24-1 with 18KO’s and Whyte is 23-1 with 17 KO’s.
Whyte seriously hurt Joshua with a huge left hook and came within a whisker of knocking him out in 2015 and Parker is the only man to go 12 rounds with Joshua. Parker has never been stopped or even knocked down as a pro and is hunting his first KO since 2016. Whyte is a KO expert. With so many storylines to this incredibly even matchup, this is not to be missed.
The pay-per-view price is set at $49.99, and the fight will screen on SKY ARENA (Channel 65) and also on FAN PASS, allowing non-SKY subscribers to purchase the fight for the same price.
