Boxing: Parker 'Grateful victory'

Joseph Parker's power and speed was too much for Brian Minto, the American quitting on his stool after the seventh round for an impressive TKO victory for the South Aucklander. The victory improved the 22-year-old's record to nine victories with eight knockouts, but it was the manner in which it was achieved which will impress his camp and promoters Duco. His dream of a world title fight remains alive.
