WBO heavyweight world, champion Joseph Parker (23-0, 18 KOs) looked unimpressive on Saturday night in defeating his former sparring partner WBO #14 Razvan Cojanu (16-3, 9 KOs) by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision at the Sparks Arena in Auckland, New Zealand.

Neither fighter was hurt in the fight.

Cojanu, 30, lost a point in round 4 after the referee took exception with him pulling down on the head of Parker.
What was interesting is the referee didn’t take a point away from Parker for pushing Cojanu’s face with his glove and trying to bend him over the ropes in round 3.

The referee stopped the action to warn the 25-year-old Parker, but he never took a point away. It seemed far worse what Parker did compared to Cojanu pulling down on the head of Parker.

The judges scored the fight 119-108, 117-110, and 117-110. Those were fair scores.

Boxing News 24 scored the fight 11 rounds to 1 in favor of Parker. Cojanu only appeared to win the 11th round, and even that round was close.

Parker was trying to hurt Cojanu with his power shots in the first 6 rounds, but he lacked the power, speed and the explosiveness to hurt the Romanian fighter.
