Breaking Down Parker vs Cojanu With Frank Lotierzo – This Saturday night in New Zealand WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (22-0) takes on late replacement Razvan Cojanu (16-2) in what is his first defense of the belt he won this past December with a UD win over Andy Ruiz Jr of the United States.
Parker has put boxing back on the map in New Zealand. He was originally scheduled to face England’s undefeated Hughie Fury but Fury pulled out of the fight claiming a bad lower back. Fury’s pulling out left Duco Events scrambling for an opponent and Cojanu was ranked #14 by the WBO. Parker will enter the fight a more than four figure favorite, at about -5000 or so.
