KALI MEEHAN TO TALK LIVE ON EPICENTRE ABOUT UPCOMING JOSEPH PARKER FIGHT
By TOM WATT on Aug 6 2015
As mentioned in my previous article (here) previewing the fights on the Professional Boxing Australia’s debut show this Saturday (August 8th), the live stream via Epicentre.tv will include commentary and analysis from Main Event/Fox Sports host Ben Damon as well as Two-Time World Champion Daniel Geale, British Boxing legend Nigel Benn and one of Australia/New Zealand’s greatest ever heavyweights, Kali Meehan.
As well as adding his expert analysis, Kali ‘Meanhands’ Meehan (42-5-0, 32 KOs) will be talking live about his recently scheduled bout with New Zealand’s rising star, Joseph Parker (15-0-0, 13 KOs).
Parker is touted as one of the hottest prospects in the Heavyweight Division and after fifteen straight wins it is easy to see where the hype comes from but this fight with Meehan represents a huge jump in class in terms of opponents and will be a real test as to whether or not he is worth the excitement surrounding him. A win for Parker will continue to see his profile grow, he has already been linked with Britain’s Anthony Joshua – both men have been managed superbly up to this point in their respective careers and if they both continue with their current trajectories their paths will surely cross sooner rather than later.
Meehan has been on somewhat of a purple patch following a couple of years of inactivity and a successful 2014 saw him win the Super 8 tournament (beating Michael Sprott in the final) as well as notching up wins over Brice Coe, Hunter Sam and Shane Cameron. As a former World Heavyweight challenger, Meehan is a tough and experienced veteran with heavy hands to boot and will not be turning up in Auckland just for a pay cheque.
Speaking at a press conference in Auckland earlier this week Kali said:
“Win, lose or draw this is going to be my last fight and I want to end my career where it all began,”
“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know a young fighter like Joseph will be instructed to tire me out but I’m ready for a war. I’m prepared for 12 rounds and want to end on a high.”
To see Kali talking more about his fight with Joseph Parker, tune in to see him live at ringside this Saturday.
