David Higgins, Joseph Parker’s promoter says the boxer will return to UK in August.

The Kiwi returned to New Zealand on Wednesday morning to a heroes welcome, despite losing his WBO belt to Joshua in UK.

His promoter has said Parker will return to UK in the summer, with many options to fight.

“August would be about the right time [for Parker’s next fight] in the UK,” Higgins said.

“Joe has got respect and support in the UK now whereas previously his only market was in New Zealand.

 

“I spoke to Eddie Hearn yesterday and he said he would be more than happy to help out with opportunities. There are options. I will talk to [American promoter] Bob Arum too and there is always the option of fighting in New Zealand again.”
