Lupesoli'ai Laaulialemalietoa Joseph Parker and promoter David Higgins have secured another title fight in London.

Joseph Parker will defend his WBO heavyweight title for the second time, this time against English boxer Hughie Fury.

Fury is the mandatory number one challenger to the title and was set to fight Parker in New Zealand earlier this year, but pulled out due to a back injury.

Parker says he's ready to finally fight the English boxer. 

"I'm looking forward to it," he says. "I don’t hold any grudges. I just go in there respect my opponent and do what I have to do."

"We're looking forward to going over to the UK and making a statement and putting on a great show," says Parker.

The undefeated fighters will go head-to-head on September 23 at Manchester Arena in England.
