Joseph Parker will not appeal loss

August 7, 2018 4:31 am

Joseph Parker has decided not to appeal his unanimous point’s loss to Dillian Whyte in their heavyweight bout in London after he suffered what appeared to be a head butt.

Parker revealed at a press conference today that he had undergone an MRI brain scan for concussion but was still awaiting final results.

He said that he felt “dazed and in a dream” after the clash of heads.

His manager David Higgins said that Parker’s camp felt that it “definitely had grounds for an appeal” as he said it had changed the course of the fight.

Parker is taking a “well-deserved break” but is determined to keep boxing. Parker plans to fight again at the end of the year as he charts a way back to the top of the heavyweight world.
