Live updates of the world heavyweight title eliminator bout between Joseph Parker and Solomon Haumono from Horncastle Arena, Christchurch.

Parker's motivation for the fight is unquestionable - he must win to maintain his tag as the mandatory challenger for the IBF world heavyweight title.

Parker weighed in at 106.4 kilograms and ceded a 2.6kg advantage to his opponent.

Haumono said at the weigh-in he wants to play the role of Rocky and cause an upset tonight. His weight advantage will be countered by Parker's edge in height and reach.
