Rising New Zealand heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker made easy work of Terry Tuteru last night in Auckland, demolishing the last minute replacement fighter in the second round.

Parker floored Tuteru four times in the second round before the referee stepped in to stop the fight. That allowed Parker to claim his second win in as many bouts since turning professional earlier in the year.

Tuteru, weighing 167kg and lacking fitness, was no match for the trim Parker.
