  2. Whyte beats Parker in gruelling contest - read the report

    Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker trade punches

    Dillian Whyte beat heavyweight rival Joseph Parker on points at London's O2 Arena to bolster his claim for a world title fight.

    The 30-year-old Briton made it eight wins in a row as he overpowered the former WBO heavyweight champion in a gruelling contest on Saturday.

    Parker, 26, went down in the second round and once again after a chopping left hand from Whyte in the ninth.

    The Kiwi rallied bravely in the last two rounds but a tiring Whyte held on, despite being knocked down himself in the last 30 seconds of the fight.

  3. 'I gave it my best, the better man won'

    Dillian Whyte beats Joseph Parker on points

    Some words now from Joseph Parker, speaking on Sky Sports Box Office: "Everyone thank you for being here tonight, what a great opportunity it is to fight in the UK for a third time.

    "We knew it would be a tough challenge, he is so strong, it shows we have a lot to work on, I want to say congratulations to my brother. I have got 12 rounds to fight, I gave it my best, the better man won. It has been an amazing journey, but it is just the beginning."

    Harry Salmon: Great night of boxing. Think Parker should go for the rematch - he certainly deserves one.

    James Alexander: Faith in heavyweight boxing restored!

  5. 'I want to fight Joshua in a rematch'

    Our winner Dillian Whyte tells Sky Sports: "It was a good fight. We knew he was going to fight and cheat his way through and then box. I'm annoyed I messed up at the final hurdle. I got rocked, took a knee. He (the referee) started at four and I got up.

    "I'm privileged to come here and fight this man, I out-boxed him and have a fast jab. He is 26 and has a massive future. He took this fight at seven weeks' notice and we came to fight.

    "I want to fight Anthony Joshua in a rematch (in April). We would be ready. I might be out again in October. I'm still so inexperienced and have so much to learn. There is still another 40% to come. It was a great fight, I love this man, we showed respect."
