Parker vs Ruiz Jr Weigh-in Results – There is an air of palpable excitement in Auckland, New Zealand as native son Joseph Parker (21-0) prepares to face Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr (29-0) for the vacant WBO world heavyweight title.
The weigh-ins are likely the last time we will see both fighters before they enter the ring on Saturday. Both men were on the scales, and less than 10 pounds separate the two fighters. Parker would appear to have slight advantages in height and reach, while it is Ruiz Jr who will have the 9 pound weight advantage.
