The two will meet in the ring in Manchester on Sunday morning (NZT), as Kiwi heavyweight Parker defends his WBO heavyweight title.

Earlier in the day, DUCO Events' boss David Higgins was thrown out of the press conference, having been involved in a verbal sparring match with Fury's father and trainer, Peter.

Parker though, seemed unfazed by any of the controversy.

"I'm gonna knock him out," Parker said.

"I'm not sure what round, probably between one and twelve," he joked.

"And then, we're going to get up and be gentlemen, and be friends after the fight."

"But when it's fight time, it's gonna be business. I'm here ready, I'm here to put on a great performance, and I'm gonna dominate."

The unbeaten Kiwi will travel north from London to Manchester later this week.

Duco Events' David Higgins was escorted away from his fighter's press conference.
