Earlier this year, Parnell Fisher was faced with the challenge of turning pro under new management. We knew going into our new partnership that trading his past in Las Vegas for his future here in Toronto was going to a tough battle but would be a smart decision to further his career. It's not everyday that you come across a 6'1 bantamweight. When the opportunity came to pair Fisher with an international contender, we knew Parnell would be ready to step up to the plate and deliver; so with 6 weeks out, Parnell locked his sights in on his upcoming bout and trained to prepare.
Heading to weigh-ins the day before the fight, we knew this was going to be different from the last time. Confidence high with laser sharp focus and we had ourselves a fighter who came to fight.
Check out some photos we took over the course of the weekend leading up to the W bringing Fishers professional record to 1-1.
Down goes Stiverne! We all watched live inside P.J. O'Briens as Deyontay Wilder continued to dominate round after round in the ring with Stiverne. If it wasn't one of the lengthy left jabs that snuck past Stiverne's defence then it was one of the furious right hooks that connected all night. Whether you were ringside at the MGM or feet up in your couch at home, you know it was an exciting bout for the HBC Heavyweight Title. For those who did not attend the event, here is what you missed!
