Boxing: Botha has the weight advantage

Francois Botha will have a massive weight advantage in tomorrow night's heavyweight fight with Joseph Parker.

Botha will fight at 116.5 kilograms, with Parker trimming down to 102.9 - the lightest of his career.

Parker says the South African has been grazing on some green pasture.

He says Botha has been enjoying himself and his stomach looks happy.

Botha says his appetite will only increase before tomorrow's fight.

He says he won't eat a lot tonight because when he gets in the ring tomorrow he wants to be hungry.

Botha says he expects the much lighter Parker to move around in the ring a lot.
