WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker answered the critics after scoring a majority decision of 118-110, 118-110, 114-114 over WBO mandatory contender Hughie Fury on Saturday in Manchester saying he scored with the harder punches and he won a fair decision.
“Fury moved well, he was awkward,” Parker said
“I caught him with the harder punches, and feel I won the fight fairly.
“It’s a great result, but I want to go back to New Zealand and have a bit of a break now.
“I feel that this opens up big fights here, we can come back and set up another big fight.”
