Joyce vs Parker - Big fight preview
The stakes don't come much higher outside a world title fight as Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker trade leather for supremacy of the WBO rankings in a scrap that could see the next mandatory challenger to Oleksandr Usyk's belt crowned in Manchester.
Joyce, who turned 37, has not put a foot wrong since turning professional in the aftermath of winning silver at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, racking up a 14-fight undefeated record on his ascent through up the heavyweight ladder.
And now 'The Juggernaut' stands tantalisingly close to securing a maiden crack at world championship glory - but he must first overcome a man who knows all about what it takes to be a champion.
Parker held the WBO strap five years ago before it was wrestled from his control by Anthony Joshua at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in 2018.
Since that fight, the 30-year-old has been on a journey of development, changing teams to link up with new trainer Andy Lee while enjoying mentorship from the WBC king Tyson Fury in Parker's adopted home from home, Morecambe.
Parker believes the improvements he has made under Lee's tutelage will stand him in good stead against fearsome opponent in Joyce, who himself believes that his long-time partnership with revered trainer Ismael Salas continues to sharpen his own arsenal of ring weaponry.
Both men are renowned for their heart, durability and desire but something has to give under the bright lights at the AO Arena.
Will the Juggernaut cruise to another crushing KO victory - or can Parker put a halt to Joyce's world title aspirations?

Joyce vs Parker - Prediction
The phrase 'styles make fights' is a tired cliche in boxing - but it is an apt way of conveying just what makes this such a fascinating contest between two big names in the heavyweight division.
Joyce has largely relied on an almost superhuman ability to withstand punishment in order to wear down his opponents, gradually building momentum in the fight before clubbing his way to an inevitable stoppage win.
Parker, meanwhile, is regarded as one of the better movers in the heavyweight division, preferring to rely on his footwork and hand speed to land shots from the outside.
If the Kiwi fighter is to see his hand raised this evening, he must prove he has the physical and mental endurance to keep Joyce off him, likely for the full 12 rounds.
Joyce, meanwhile, will be hoping the slow suffocation of his relentless forward pressure will make Parker wilt in the second half of the fight, allowing him to go through the gears and secure the biggest win of his career.
Strength and conditioning has been the focus of Parker's camp leading into this heavyweight showdown - but Joyce is renowned as one of the fittest and most athletic figures in the division and it seems unlikely Parker will be able to escape his clutches for the full 36 minutes.
Verdict: Joyce TKO R11
