JOSEPH PARKER has vowed to unleash his secret sparring techniques to knock Hughie Fury out when the two go head to head for the WBO title in Manchester next week.
The current champion has been training at David Haye’s south London gym, where he took part in a public training session on Monday.
The next day however, the doors were closed to the public as he worked on new techniques during a sparring session that he hopes to use on fight night.
Parker goes into the bout with an unbeaten record (23-0-18) and will look to bring a few surprises to the ring when he takes on number one contender Fury.
The 25-year-old Kiwi said: “Yesterday [Monday] we did a public session where people could come and see us train, sort of watch us on the pads, on the bag, skipping and that sort of thing but today we did a good six rounds of sparring.
“With sparring, no one’s allowed to come and watch us because we are working on different techniques and skills that we want to show on fight night, so it’s going to be a surprise. I’m going to be putting on that pressure.
“I’ve trained hard and when I train hard, I’m going to win. I’m going to knock someone out.”
