Both fighters have lost to AJ, which remains the solitary defeat on each of their CV’s.

And there’s plenty on the line, with the winner well in the hunt for another world title shot.

When is Whyte vs Parker?

The huge bout is set for Saturday, July 28.

Whyte is back at the familiar surroundings of the O2 Arena, where he took apart Lucas Browne in eye-catching fashion in March.

This will be Parker’s third-straight fight on British shores, having beaten Hughie Fury in Manchester before the Joshua defeat in Cardiff.

Expect the ring-walks around 10pm.
