Zach Parker maintained his lofty position within the WBO super middleweight rankings, as he crushed Marcus Morrison in four rounds at Utilita Arena in Birmingham to defend his WBO International title.

Parker is in pole position to face the likes of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez by way of virtue of his position with the organisation, and he kept his ranking against a man that lost on the cards against Chris Eubank Junior back in May.


After a quiet start, Parker cranked the pressure up in round two, as he targeted Morrison’s body to good effect, as he dropped Morrison to the mid-section. Towards the end of the frame, an accumulation of body work forced the Manchester man to the canvas once more, but he managed to survive. The end was clearly nigh though, and the fourth saw another body shot knockdown, which Morrison bravely beat the count from. Right on the bell for the end of the round saw the conclusion of the contest, as an accumulation of punches from Parker caused the referee to step in to signal the end.


“I’m really pleased with the win” said Parker to BT Sport post fight.

“I’m too big and too strong at super middleweight. I’ll fight Chris Eubank Junior if necessary”.


Stoke’s Nathan Heaney is a big ticket seller, and he didn’t disappoint his adoring fans as he won the vacant IBO International middleweight title with a seventh round stoppage win over Sladan Janjanin. A right hand to the body ended matters, with the visitor unable to beat the referee’s count.


Denzel Bentley rebounded from losing his British middleweight crown against Felix Cash last time out, halting West Bromwich’s Sam Evans in three rounds. A big right hand had Evans disorientated, and a follow up attach, with Evans all at sea, caused the referee to intervene.


Ryan Garner moved to 11-0 as a professional, recording an eight round points win over Pedro Manuel Gomes at lightweight. Garner was adjudged a 79-74 winner for the referee.
