Sources tell Spy that boxer Joseph Parker has a new member in his squad. Agustina Mon will be cheering him along when he fights to retain his WBO in Manchester next month against Brit Hughie Fury.
Mon, who has been dating Duco director David Higgins for several months, is said to have been a rock to Higgins during his business break-up from Dean Lonergan. Sources told Spy the Manchester trip is a big deal for the couple.
Mon was there for Parker’s first defence of his WBO title against Razvan “Bigfoot” Cojanu at the Vodafone Events Centre in April. But then the pair wouldn’t pose as a couple, instead dragging others into shot to keep us guessing on the state of their relationship.
This week Higgins changed his Facebook profile picture to a hippie chic one of Mon and himself, much to the delight of his followers.
Mon hopped on to the feed and pointed out the photo was taken at the Splore Festival.
No word yet how Mon’s ex-husband Marc Ellis feels about Higgins.
