World heavyweight belt lands ahead of Parker fight

By Tamati Tiananga

Fans will get a chance to see the world heavyweight belt ahead of the Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz heavyweight championship fight on December 10 at Vector Arena.

Today, the World title belt was unveiled in New Zealand before a nationwide tour which begins tomorrow to twelve towns.  

The belt will visit towns including Hamilton, Rotorua and Whangarei, but Parker won't be touching it until he wins the fight.

Parker's opponent Andy Ruiz is expected to visit New Zealand for the first time this Friday or Saturday with details to be confirmed. 

Next week Duco Events will confirm the Pay Per View price- there are only 2000 tickets left on sale for the fight.
