WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is set to snub Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in an effort to win the unified championship of the world title.
The New Zealander is currently preparing to make his choice for a top-15 defence fight in December and will make his judgement based on the WBO ratings.
Following that, the 25-year-old will then fight the victor of the David Haye vs Tony Bellew rematch coming up in December, according to World Boxing News.
The much-anticipated fight between Haye and Bellew will take place at the O2 Arena in London, with the winner then setting up a clash with Parker.
In the previous fight, the latter defeated his 36-year-old opponent via a technical knockout at the O2 on March 4, 2017.
Parker and the winner of that rematch will then come together in the same venue in March 2018, with the Kiwi looking to retain his title and better his fantastic boxing record of 24-0.
If he is named the winner in that clash, he will then go into a much-anticipated fight with the current unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
The 27-year-old will attempt to defend his crown in July 2018 at Wembley Stadium in London.
If all goes to Parker's plan, it could mean that current WBC champion Deontay Wilder will have to wait until 2018 to attempt to add to his belt haul.
This could potentially see the 31-year-old come up against former WBA Unified, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The Manchester-born boxer has been out of action since November 2015, in which he defeated Wladimir Klitschko in the Espirit Arena in Dusseldorf.
Both boxers could potentially come into the clash with exemplary records in the sport.
Fury boasts a 25-0 record, with wins awarded by knockout, whilst Wilder possesses an incredible 38-0 record with 37 knockouts.News Now - Sport News
