MAIN CARD

Joseph Parker vs. Andy Ruiz Jr: Vacant WBO heavyweight world championship fight: The fight starts off very evenly matched with both men taking their turns landing their combinations. The bigger man, Parker, was utilizing the jab to set up combos and counter punches while Ruiz was busy using stiff hooks. While both men seemingly the same amount of punches, Ruiz was landing the stronger punches in the early going. 

About halfway through the fight, Parker's jab is starting look like it is doing damage on the smaller Ruiz and after six, there was still no clear indication of who was ahead in the cards. The two men are not exactly producing an unentertaining fight, but there was nothing to get overtly exciting about. Each man has had his fair share of punches put in.

Parker is winning the middle portion of the fight after Ruiz was the one who had gotten into his opponent's head earlier in the fight. Parker is moving across the ring and taking his time to use the jab effectively. Ruiz is getting back into a better groove, connecting better on his jabs and hooks to Parker's face. 

The end of the fight is still very close and both men had been connecting on their jabs and stiff hooks and it's almost a toss up on how the fight goes. The cards prove that with how close the score was. The fight wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Against other world-class fighters such as Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko, Parker still does not hold up to that standard, at least not yet.

Official Result: Joseph Parker defeated Andy Ruiz Jr. via majority decision (114-114, 115-113, 115-113) to win the vacant WBO heavyweight world championship
