The next rival of Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usik, the main contender for the WBO Heavyweight Belt, could be New Zealander Joseph Parker.

“It is possible that the WBO title will be released. Then Joseph Parker will become the next available fighter and challenge Usik to compete for the vacant title,” Parker’s manager, David Higgins, said.

That said, Parker himself may be challenged before it comes to that.

The winner of the match between American Andy Ruiz and British Anthony Joshua may want to challenge Parker first, Sport.ua reported.

British boxer Derek Chisora ​​is also negotiating a duel with Usik to fight for the WBO title.
