An emotional Anzac Day for Kiwi boxer Joseph Parker and Australian world title challenger Alex Leapai in Germany.

Parker and Leapai have visited the Rheinberg War Cemetery ahead of Sunday morningâ s fights in Oberhausen.

Both fighters were visibly emotional while they read the names and ages of some of their countrymen, some no more that 17-years-old.

The Commonwealth Cemetery is the final resting place for 104 New Zealand World War Two soldiers and 240 Australians.
