Boxing career

Parker continues to inspire next boxing generation

There's a certain symmetry to the fact the biggest opportunity of Mose Auimatagi Junior's career will come when he fights on the undercard of Joseph Parker's title unification bout against British superstar Anthony Joshua in Cardiff on Easter Sunday.

Now 22 and the New Zealand champion in the middleweight division, Auimatagi Junior was just 14 when he walked in the door at the Papatoetoe Boxing Club.

By then Parker was a Youth Olympic Games silver medallist, and all the attention he was getting served as motivation for a younger boy from the same neck of the woods.

Klitschko happy with boxing career

Up until April 2015, Klitschko had only lost three of his 67 professional fights, but he was then beaten by two British fighters - Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.

His final defeat to Joshua at Wembley was considered by many as a classic heavyweight title fight, with both men sent to the canvas during the bout.

However, in the 11th round there was no way back for Klitschko as Joshua unleashed a barrage of punches that left the Ukrainian beaten.
