A local artist produced this artwork of Kiwi professional boxer Joseph Parker who held the WBO heavyweight title from 2016 to 2018.
In October, Parker dramatically beat Deontay Wilder who held the WBC heavyweight title from 2015 to 2020.
Parker will fight Zhilei Zhang in Saudi Arabia in March.
They will compete for the interim WBO heavyweight title at Riyadh’s Kingdom Arena on Friday, March 8 on the undercard for Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou’s showdown.
Local artist RS, who wishes to remain anonymous, uses a combination of AI and other other digital tools, mainly Photoshop, depending on what he is working on at the time.
“I produce my work digitally now, although I was an art teacher many years ago and have exhibited using traditional media over the years.”
