Odds provided by Bovada.


Parker should take care of business in this bout. He’s a former heavyweight champion and has won multiple belts throughout his career. It’s a battle of New Zealand, so Fa shouldn’t be counted out easily. He’s undefeated and currently holds the WBO interim heavyweight title, and he has since 2018. This will be a fight with a lot of heart involved where both Parker and Fa will give their all. However, Parker will win the battle of New Zealand.
