MANCHESTER, England (AP) Joseph Parker prevented the Fury family from reclaiming a world heavyweight title by beating Hughie Fury by a majority decision on Saturday, with the judges rewarding the New Zealander's attacking approach in an uneventful fight.

Parker failed to land many clean punches but was never in danger against Fury, who came with a game plan of negating Parker's power with his movement and foot speed and then counterattacking.

Two judges scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Parker. The other judge scored it 114-114.
