Francois Botha Tips Joseph Parker To Unify Titles in The Heavyweight

Retired Heavyweight Francois Botha praised Joseph Parker and also tipped him to unify titles in the Heavyweight division. Botha who retired a fight after Joseph Parker knocked him out in the second round.

Frans Botha actually faced the biggest legends when in his prime Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Michael Moorer, Wladimir Klitschko and had won an IBF title which was later made a no contest after he failed a post Fight drug test.

This is three years since Botha faced Parker and Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) had now won a world title, defended it, his last defense against mandatory challenger Hughie Fury which he won via majority decision.

"I had a lot of fun with Baby Joseph though he's not a baby any more, he's world champion. I said then he's got the speed and when the power comes he's going to be the unified world champion," Botha said to Fairfax Media.

"With his speed and power, I believe this kid is like Muhammad Ali. Don't underestimate him. I see a lot of things happening for Joseph Parker. The sky is the limit for him. It's all up to him.

"I think the level of the division is getting back to where it was, there are some exciting guys. Joseph Parker is popular, he has charisma, he has the right team behind him. He has to keep doing what he is doing ... keep building and getting around."

"100 percent ... you have all these alphabetical titles, but there are the four main recognised titles. Joseph has one of those. I think you need to unify those four into one champion," Botha said.
