Midway through the fifth round, Parker landed a flush right hand that stunned Winters and Parker didn’t hesitate to move in for the kill.
Another big right hook landed followed up by a monstrous left hand that left Winters stumbling backwards, but on his way down Parker delivered one final right hand.
Winters got back to his feet but the referee quickly waved it off with the American nowhere near able to continue the fight.
My goodness. Joseph Parker dropped the hammer on Winters. That was brutal. I’d like to see Winters drop to cruiserweight. He’s way too small for heavyweight. #GarciaVargas
“I want to keep busy. Hopefully with 2 more fights this year,” Parker said after the fight.
“I want to fight Chisora, Whyte again. Anyone in the top 10.”
Winters down again late in the fifth, and it's over there. Parker TKO-5. Winters with a great effort. Overmatched but came to fight. #ParkerWinters #GarciaVargas
Brutal! Jeez. And the ref waves it off! Thank goodnes. #SafetyFirst Congrats Parker.
Tough loss but Winters was all heart though. And started late at 29yrs old? Wow. @DAZN_USA #ParkerWinters #GarciaVargas
