TBC Interview Kevin Barry – WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is in Las Vegas working with his Las Vegas-based trainer Kevin Barry in preparation for his forthcoming match with WBA/IBF champion Anthony Joshua.
The oddsmakers aren’t giving Parker much of a chance, but the presence of Barry, a boxing lifer, may work in his favor. Barry is best remembered in U.S. boxing circles for being the guy Evander Holyfield was disqualified against in the semifinal round of the 1984 L.A. Olympics. Although Barry never turned pro, he continued to stay involved in the sport. A few years back when Parker came under his wing, Barry felt he had found the perfect student. On March 31st, they find out when Parker meets Joshua in Cardiff, Wales.
In this latest TBC segment, TSS editor Arne Lang has a sitdown with Barry to talk about Joseph Parker. Check out what Barry had to say right here at TBC.
