Some spice has been added to Joseph Parker's heavyweight boxing bout against Alexander Dimitrenko tonight in Manukau.

British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is facing fresh questions about his future as his promoters refused to comment on reports he's tested positive for cocaine.

ESPN says Fury tested positive after giving a urine sample on late last month.

Fury had been due to fight Wladimir Klitschko in Manchester later this month but pulled out last week.

Parker could fight for the WBO title if Fury is stripped of his belt as expected over the positive test.

Eden Park is being considered to host the potential bout against Mexican American Andy Ruiz Junior.
