The fight between New Zealand heavyweight boxers Joseph Parker and Junior Fa will now take place in late February or early March.

The original fight was due to be held on December 12th but was postponed last week because of an illness to Fa that will see him undergo surgey tomorrow.

Fa though expects to be back into full time training by early January although he won’t reveal what the medical issue is.

“I was gutted when I was told that I wasn’t going to be able to fight..although on the week beforehand I could feel the drop off in my peformance – where in the part of the camp I should have been picking up I was going down and I didn’t know the reason for that until I had a blood test and then I got pulled from the fight,” said Fa

Fa’s manager Mark Keddell says both camps want the fight to happen as soon as possible.

“Our goal is to get the boys in the ring as quick as humanly possible so that they can both move on with their careers…this is the world number three (Parker) and the world number six for the WBO so there is a lot at stake.”
