Joseph Parker’s journey back to heavyweight boxing’s summit begins against Alex Leapai in Rhode Island on Sunday.

The former WBO champion has only fought once in 2019 - a dominating knockout over Argentine journeyman Alexander Flores.

Parker's descent from the top of the heavyweight mountain was quick - two decision losses against Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte had the Kiwi bordering on irrelevancy until he inked a multi-fight deal with kingpin promoter Eddie Hearn.

Andy Ruiz's stunning stoppage of Joshua earlier this month has parker right back in the conversation for a future title shot but he must be dominant against veteran heavyweight Laepai - a former world title challenger.
