Joseph Parker has defeated a game opponent in Shawndell Winters in a surprisingly tough 5th round TKO.
Winters appeared to put on a more competitive challenge for Parker than many critics thought he would with him enduring a lot of powerful shots through all of the rounds and being dropped dramatically in the 3rd.
Parker didn’t seem to be completely back to his peak form on his return back to the ring since June 2019 due to suffering an infectious spider bite right before he was due to face his heavyweight rival Dereck Chisora.
After the fight with Winter, Parker did say that he is now hoping to make the fight with Chisora again to settle their unfinished business, maybe this could be made after Chisora’s clash later this year with Oleksandr Usyk.
But for now? Parker said he would just like to take some more time to rest up.
