But, after some haggling, hands were shook on the £20,000 wager on the heavyweight clash on Saturday night.

And Whyte vowed that Team Parker will be hurt in more places than just the wallet.

The 30-year-old Brixton Bodysnatcher said: “I come here to win, I've trained hard and given it my all.

“I couldn't have done anything more. I'm ready to rock, anybody can get it.

“I have been sparring with smaller and faster guys.

“Whatever he throws at me I will be ready for.

“If he comes to run then I will eek out a points decision but if he comes to fight then he will experience pain.”

But former WBO world champion Parker, who lost his crown to Anthony Joshua insists, despite a short fight camp, that he will be the one dishing out the hurt.

The Kiwi hero said: “I am here to do damage.

“I am here to punch with bad intentions, he is going to take a lot of punches.

“He has been talking smack and that is a sign of self-doubt

“I hope he is ready to take a lot of punches because he is going to take them, bad.

“He thinks I cannot go to war but this will be all about less movement and more punches. I predict a dominant win an a knock-out.”
