The WBO heavyweight title belt Joseph Parker will be fighting for in December.

The WBO heavyweight boxing belt Joseph Parker hopes to get his hands on next month, won't be coming to Whangarei today as planned.

The belt, which Parker will fight for against Mexican Andy Ruiz in Auckland on December 10 was to have been at Burger King, in Whangarei, today.

But Greg McCalman, of promoters Duco Events, said the visit has had to be cancelled as the belt will be needed for a television promotion in Auckland today.

Mr McCalman said the visit may be rearranged for next Monday.
