ZACH PARKER has had a very quick rise to the mainstream. A year ago he was fighting on undercards in the Midlands in front of sparse crowds, yet now he is just one phone call away from being catapulted into the main event of one of the biggest event’s in British boxing’s recent history.

Parker, 14-0, 10 KOs, has recently been named as the reserve in the super-middleweight division for the World Boxing Super Series and will be the first man in, if one of George Groves or Chris Eubank Jr are unable to get in the ring for Saturday’s highly anticipated clash on ITV Box Office.

The 23-year-old from Swadlincote in Derbyshire has enjoyed a year and opportunity that many are never handed in boxing, which has seen him thrust onto the verge of the biggest tournament in the sport and the opportunity to sign with the Sauerland Brothers.
