Hrgovic Wants Parker For His Next Fight – ‘See You Soon’

Filip Hrgovic wants Joseph Parker for his next fight on the Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou undercard. 

Hrgovic is coming off a first-round knockout win over Mark De Mori in Saudi Arabia as he retained his IBF interim heavyweight belt. While he was linked with the Joshua fight, Joshua chose to face Ngannou. Parker’s win over Deontay Wilder has put him in the conversation for the biggest fights.

A fight with Hrgovic takes him a step closer to a world title by becoming mandatory for the winner of Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk. Parker is the former WBO heavyweight champion who lost his belt to Joshua. A win over Hrgvoic could help him get the rematch. Hrgovic was fully focused on facing Parker. 

“El Animal in the house. I heard Joseph Parker wants to fight me in March on the Joshua-Ngannou undercard. I am very happy to hear that. I am ready. I accept your offer, Joe. Let’s do it. Let’s go, baby. Let’s get down. Let’s get down to business. See you soon,” Filip Hrgovic said 

There is no pressure on Hrgovic to take the fight. He has the IBF mandatory position and could wait for the winner of Fury-Usyk. Since they have a rematch clause, the winner will likely get stripped, meaning Hrgovic fights for the full title against the second-ranked fighter in the IBF rankings, which will be Joshua once it is updated. Parker has shown he can cause an upset on the biggest stage with the Wilder win, so Hrgovic must be wary.
