Joseph Parker's Team Taking No Chances With Minto

There is some hesitation that Joseph Parker's camp has made the correct decision putting him in the ring against American journeyman Brian Minto next month.

The 39-year-old ended the career of Shane Cameron last year.

"Experience is a big advantage for me," he said. "I've been in with a lot of better opponents than Joseph Parker throughout the years and I guess July 5 we will see."

The Kiwi camp has already seen the destructive power of the man nicknamed "the beast" as his demolition job on Cameron in December was simply brutal.

Parker witnessed Minto's ability first hand.

"I was there on the fight night and saw how hard he hits with clean shots and a little bit of dirtiness here and there, but I think to myself I can handle this kind of stuff."

Minto's trainer for that fight was Kevin Barry who is now guiding Parker's career and is understandably worried about the American's street brawling style.

"Brian is a very good puncher but he's also very good at using his head and elbows and other parts of the body and with the recent cut problems we've had I am really concerned about that," said Barry.

The cut Parker suffered in his latest win in Germany last month has healed well, but Barry will be urging him to keep his distance against Minto.

Minto has a punchers chance but otherwise this is a mismatch.

Parker by 8th round KO unless he gets a serious cut. That boy's chin is granite, but it looks like he can be cut easily.

It's 5:37 PM in New Zealand. This fight will be happen a few hours from now.

I love when a fighter who's young and starting up isn't always padded along the way. Jus keep to the gameplan when going up against experience as old dogs have habits that are stubborn to break.
