    December 10th, 2016. Billed as "History", Joseph Parker also known by his Honorary Samoan matai title "Lupesoliai La'auli" takes on "The Destroyer" Andy Ruiz Jr. This bout is billed as such, as there has never been a New Zealander nor Mexican fighter to ever win any version of the World Heavyweight Championship. Thus, either winner would make history for their respective country in one of the most anticipated sporting events in the history of New Zealand and Mexican boxing.

    Parker and Ruiz are two young, undefeated heavyweights with records of 21(18)-0 & 29(19)-0 respectively. Both fighting in their first world title bout; for the vacant WBO World Heavyweight Crown.

    The 2 most notable New Zealander heavyweights to fight in a world heavyweight title bout are:

    1) Tom Heeney, who challenged the great Gene Tunney on July 26th, 1928 for the World Heavyweight Title and lost via TKO11 in a valiant effort.
    2) David Tua, who challenged the legendary Lennox Lewis on November 11th, 2000 for the WBC, IBF, IBO, and Lineal Heavyweight Titles; losing via a lopsided UD in what was considered a huge letdown for his fellow countrymen.

    The 2 most notable Mexican heavyweights to fight in a world heavyweight title bout are:

    1) Manuel Ramos, who challenged the legendary Smokin’ Joe Frazier on Jun 24th, 1968 for the NYSAC World Heavyweight Title and lost via TKO2 in a non stop action bout.
    2) Chris Arreola, who challenged for the WBC strap in 3 different occasions;
    - September 26th, 2009. Lost to Vitali Klitschko via RTD10.
    - May 10th,2014. Lost to Bermane Stiverne via TKO6.
    - July 16th, 2016. Lost to Deontay Wilder via RTD8.

    Going into the bout, Parker had notable wins over Alexander Dimitrenko & Carlos Takam while Ruiz had beaten former world title contender Ray Austin.

    Ruiz won most of the early and arguably mid rounds, with Parker coming on stronger from the mid to the late rounds as the competition becomes more intense with the scorecards seemingly narrowing. Some very good exchanges took place particularly in the second half.

    The verdict was a MD with scores of 115-113 (2x) & 114-114 in favor of the hometown favorite, Parker who became the first New Zealander in history to become World Heavyweight Champion. The decision has been disputed by many, who believe that Ruiz had won the majority of the rounds.

    Nonetheless, it was a competitive fight by two young, hungry and undefeated heavyweights!

    Joseph Parker had since made 2 successful defenses of his WBO strap notable an MD win over Hughie Fury in September 2017. He’s scheduled to take on the also undefeated Anthony Joshua who is now 20(20)-0 this coming March 31st.

                                Fucking hell, Parker's hands are FAST. I think Ruiz also started catching on to that and tried to get to that speed himself for his match against AJ. Fully outmatched AJ in speed, beat him fair and square. Respect to both of these guys, amazing boxers.

                                                Parker is a tough guy real deal

                                                  Noticed that late in the fight Ruiz was visibly reacting to Parker's body shots whereas earlier he was acting like he wasn't fazed by them.

                                                  Poker face is important in boxing, but more importantly, it is important not to be fazed by someone's poker face and continue your strategy if you're landing with success.

                                                  GGG also has a poker face but if you lay attention you can see the punches are affecting him from the Brook, Jacobs, and Canelo fights.

                                                  Problem is most fighters get discouraged by the poker face and the fact he keeps coming when in fact they should continue punching.

                                                  PS. GGG is sweet to the body though just like Kovalev. He tries but fails to maintain a poker face when hit hard to the body and body shots always back him up and make him wince. Canelo almost killed him with body attacks in their second fight but Canelo doesn't have the stamina to finish the job as he gassed at the same time GGG was ready to go (at around round 6 when GGG was breathing heavy).

                                                  Jacobs also backed him up with mean body shots but Jacobs turning the heat up too late.

                                                  Joshua has power and I'm sure his body shots are mean AF, but he doesn't have the stamina to capitalize on that even if he wears out Ruiz he'll be worn out at around the same time too.

                                                  He also doesn't have the chin to take return fire. Honestly, I don't know what Joshua can do. He has the power to knock Ruiz down but Ruiz has bags of heart and he's Mexican so he has a chin ain't like he gonna one punch knock him out.

                                                  If Joshua pulls this off I'm sure he won't ever want to fight Ruiz again.

                                                      I think that Ruiz has to use more uppercut. Like Tyson and he Will be a beast

                                                            I think Ruiz won this fight!

                                                              Parker deserved this. He's been the only HW to stay busy, take hard fights and travel.
                                                              All you bandwagoners and Johnny-come-lately's are only on here to claim you knew how great Ruiz Jr was/is.
                                                              In this fight, Ruiz simply didn't land on the buttons (chin, temple, behind the ear) the same way he did with A.J.
                                                              A.J is going to blow him out of Saudi Arabia all the way back to Guadalajara.

                                                                        • Dave

                                                                              • MAC 75

                                                                                • Kingston Tr

Not the same way he fought Ruiz. . Watch the rematch, he is going to frustrate Andy. Andy always fight the same way. AJ adjusts due to his height.

                                                                                  • Falaniko Robertson
