Samoa was the winner

Re: Leave our world champion alone 

The fight night was a spectacular success for Samoa with advertisements for Samoan tourism playing constantly throughout the night.  We then had Loau announce the fight followed by a tribute to some of the great Samoan fighters of past years. My only disappointment is  that  there  was no acknowledgement of the Australian-based boxer, Alex Leapai, in the video montage. Also, it could be taken as a bit of insult that The Rock was featured in the video montage when W.W.F. wrestling is not real sport. 

However, besides from that, Samoa was the winner on the night and Joseph Parker is the champion of the world (W.B.O.). 

It was a close fight but Parker got the cleaner shots and finished strong. The likes of Lance Revell and Bob Jones haven’t achieved anything approaching what Parker has achieved.
