Meeting in the ring for the first time in eight years, the two old foes will battle it out once more as they look to climb the ranks in what is now a very congested heavyweight division.
Promoted by Eddie Hearn, Parker is currently third in the WBO rankings and comes into the showdown as the big favourite, with the 31-year old putting his WBO oriental heavyweight title on the line.
Fa may have underdog status but comes into this clash with a flawless 19-0 professional record, with ten of his wins via KO. With one eye on the piece of a pie in aftermath of this summer's big clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, there's a lot more than just local bragging rights for tonight's winner.

How to watch the boxing if you're away from your country
Below we've listed all of the best places to live stream the Joseph Parker vs Junior Fa fight online in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.
If you're abroad and discover that your usual coverage is geo-blocked, then the only alternative that we know is to use a VPN to dial in to a country that does have one. The software is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location - and all through a safe, encrypted connection.
ExpressVPN is the world's top VPN
We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It's compatible with loads of devices including iOS, Android, Amazon Fire Stick, PlayStation, Apple TV and such, and we found it secure, speedy and simple-to-use.

Once you've downloaded the software, just follow the prompts to install it then select the location you want to relocate your IP address to - it really is that easy.
Remember, there are loads of benefits to using a VPN beyond just helping you regain access to streaming services and content from abroad.

This makes everyday tasks like online shopping and banking much safer, and many people choose to use one for that reason alone.

Who is Junior Fa?
Born in Papakura District, Auckland Fa has held the WBO Oriental interim heavyweight title since 2018.
After a hugely promising amateur career, Fa stepped away from boxing in 2013 to become a glazer, only to return as a pro to the sport in 2016, and has gone on to build a reputation reputation as a future world title challenger, with a 19-0 unbeaten record that has seen him deliver 10 knockouts.
