Defeat not option for Kiwi heavyweight Joseph Parker against Brit Jack Massey

The pair will square off at Manchester Arena on Sunday (NZT) with live coverage to be shown on both Three and ThreeNow.

Newshub reports Parker is aiming to bounce back from his first career knockout loss, after falling to Joe Joyce for the vacant WBO interim heavyweight title last September.

He now has the perfect opportunity to launch himself back into contention with a victory over a division newcomer.
