Joseph Parker dominated Deontay Wilder on Saturday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, en route to the major upset victory in a battle of former heavyweight champions.

New Zealand’s Parker prevailed via scores of 118-111, 118-110 and 120-108.

Wilder entered the bout a -700 favorite, per ESPN BET, and did so with a deal in place to meet Anthony Joshua on March 9 in Riyadh, sources said. That agreement was contingent on Wilder and Joshua both winning.

Parker’s win over Wilder, which spoils those plans, was the co-feature to Joshua vs. Otto Wallin.
