WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker's mandatory title bout against Hughie Fury in April could be held in the Englishman's hometown of Manchester.
Parker's co-promoter David Higgins of Duco Events has told Sky Sports in the UK that the best way for Parker to become a star in England is to knockout a Englishman.
Hughie Fury's promoter Frank Warren said he believes his charge has a great chance to become the WBO champion and the Parker-Fury bout is a 50-50 fight
"He (Parker) is already a star in New Zealand. Becoming a star in England is not a bad idea, because it's such a good market with a big, powerful pay-per-view opportunity," Higgins told Sky Sports.
Fury's veteran promoter Frank Warren remains in the dark about the venue.
"I was reading somewhere they were talking about Singapore but I don't know at the moment," Warren told iFL TV in England when asked about the likely venue.
