Joseph Parker is ranked third by the WBC, but he has a challenging fight against Chinese southpaw Zhang Zhilei (26-1-1, 21 KOs) scheduled for March 8. If Parker could defeat Zhang, he would become the WBO interim champ.

According to Dan Rafael via his substack, a date of June 1 has been mentioned for Dmitry Bivol vs. Artur Beterbiev – and if the representatives of Kabayel-Sanchez can agree on terms – it is not unrealistic to think it could be an undercard fight on the Beterbiev-Bivol card.

Sanchez defeated Junior Fa by seventh-round TKO on the “Day of Reckoning” undercard.
