Zach Parker came through his toughest test to date as he dismantled Australia’s Rohan Murdock in 11 rounds on Saturday night live on SKY Sports.
WBO Number 1 and 2 contender’s went toe to toe at the Manchester Arena and, after breaking Murdock down, a spiteful left hook halted the brave Aussie challenger in the latter stages of the contest.
Parker can now call himself the number one contender the WBO super-middleweight strap and was awarded the WBO Inter-Continental Title at the same time.
“I want a world title shot as soon as possible,” Parker said afterwards. “Obviously I should be the mandatory for the (WBO) title now. I’m ready.”
