Frank Lotierzo Talks Parker vs Ruiz Post Fight – The WBO world heavyweight title is going home with undefeated 24-year-old New Zealander Joseph Parker as he won a 12 round majority decision victory over Andy Ruiz Jr to take home the vacant belt this past Saturday night in Auckland.
The judges returned scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 114-114 for Parker, who has fulfilled his and trainer Kevin Barry’s goal of bringing a heavyweight world title to New Zealand. Ruiz Jr gave a credible effort in his first attempt to win a world title, but he appeared to get outworked by the more athletic Parker.
As always, when a decision is this close and a world title is involved, the question will be asked “did the judges get this one right?”
