The big warriors Manu Vatuvei will feature Joseph Parker's bill next month at Christchurch.
The legend of the warriors Manu Vatuvei will exchange the gloves boots, when he moves away with Dave Letele, also known as The Brown Buttabean, in December.
The fight will appear on the billboard for Joseph Parker's fight against Alexander Flores on December 15 at the Horncastle Arena in Christchurch, with Duco Boxing expected to announce it on Tuesday morning.
The big one has recently returned to Auckland after his career in the English Super League, where he left after leaving the Warriors in 2017.
His new club, Salford Red Devils, released him in June after he could not recover from an Achilles injury.

Now, 32 years, Vatuvei has returned to Auckland's house and has been working in the boxing gym with people like Monty Betham and David Tua, in preparation for their fight with the popular Letele.
His opponent fought and beat Lopini Vatuvei, Manu's elder brother, in 2014 and has a 16-3 record.
Letele was a popular figure in the New Zealand corporate boxing world for several years.
