The Matchroom boxing card will be shown online through the DAZN app live streaming service and fight fans can tune in from their computers, smartphones, and tablets to watch anywhere they want.
Parker, 28, won the vacant WBO title by defeating Andy Ruiz in 2016. Parker lost the belt to Anthony Joshua in 2018 and Joshua would eventually lose to the man Parker beat for the title, Andy Ruiz.
The New Zealand native of Samoan heritage, vows to climb back to title contention and is staying busy to stay sharp and ready just in case he lands another world championship shot.
His opponent tonight is 39-year-old American heavyweight Shawndell Winters who is looking to pull off an upset.
