Heavyweights collide at The 02 Arena in London, England today (Saturday, July 28th), as Dillian Whyte (23-1, 17 KOs) and Joseph Parker (24-1, 18 KOs) face off in a pay-per-view main event.
Whyte just viciously knocked out Lucas Browne a couple of months ago, setting the stage for him to prove himself against an actual elite-level heavyweight. Parker is the former WBO heavyweight champion, but he lost his belt and his unbeaten record to Anthony Joshua in an uninspiring decision in March. It’s a crossroads matchup, as Whyte wants to prove he’s a top-tier fighter, while Parker looks to remain among the best in his weight class.
Here are the basic details on who’s fighting tonight, how you can watch the card, where you can catch a live stream, and more.
