Joseph Parker steps into the ring with Mexican Andy Ruiz in Auckland tomorrow night in the first world heavyweight title fight to be held in New Zealand.

They are fighting for the World Boxing Organisation title.

Ruiz, nicknamed "The Destroyer", is Parker's toughest opponent yet.

But Parker says he's been preparing for this fight since he was a young boy - and he's ready to go.
