Duco Director Ditched

Duco Events directors David Higgins and Dean Lonergan have announced they are splitting their shared business interests.

The promoters, who have WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker on their books, have worked together for five years.

“We had a great journey and produced some amazing results but we both agree it is time to go our separate ways,” Higgins, who founded Duco Events in 2003, said in a statement.

Lonergan said the partnership had been hugely successful but had now run its natural course.

“I wish David all the best,” Lonergan said.

As long as it is understood that whatever happens from now, it has nothing to do with Duco.

On the other side is Higgins, who has been focused on guiding Parker’s blossoming career this year.

Parker has a strong personal bond with Higgins that goes well beyond fighter-promoter relationship. Over the course of Parker’s 19-fight tenure with Duco since 2012 the pair have formed a genuine friendship – enjoying each other’s company outside the fight scene.

They certainly have shared a few hits together over the years.
