  • Comments Thread For: Parker: I've Got a Good Feeling I'll Finish Chisora Inside The Distance

    I just don’t think he has had the same fire since the massive payday he got fighting Joshua. He had close tough fights with Whyte & Chisora but he just didn’t seem to have the same fire. He has made a lot of money early in his career & he doesn’t seem like the type of guy who is worried about legacy. Since Joshua it has been Whyte, Winters, Leapai, Flores, Fa & Chisora. He didn’t look impressive against Leapai, Fa or Chisora. He is only 29 though so maybe he can prove me wrong & recapture some intensity. This is a massive fight for him. He is highly ranked & a loss to Chisora could spell the end of him as a contender. Chisora is 37 & tough as nails but he has a lot of miles on the odometer. Del Boy has been in a lot of tough fights. I still have it a 50/50 fight. I’m not sure who wins.

        I’m thinking the ref will stop it early if del gets hit to avoid having to rob him on the cards

          I sometimes forget how young he still is. He’s always been good, but not great. He’s got a good chin but he’s a bit of a soft puncher. I’d like to see him fight Wilder. Parker’s the much better boxer but I’m about 50/50 on if his chin holds up to Wilder’s much better punching power. Would anyone else care to see that fight?

            I’d like to see Wilder/Parker. I believe when both were champions Wilder tried to get Parker in a unification bout but Parker obviously went with the more lucrative option in Joshua. The funny thing is if they did fight the winner would of had a better negotiating chip for a Joshua unification fight. Obviously Parker wanted the guaranteed 8 digit check. & you can’t blame him for that because if he takes the Wilder fight & loses then he never sees that 8 digit payday… like Martin he cashed out on a Joshua fight…

              Well, as long as you have a good feeling about it, Joe. Wonder how Del feels?

                Parker has zero chance to ever be a champion again

                  Yeah yeah he literally says this every fight then plods around lacking power and ability to fight at long range due to lack of reach
                  He's durable and I respect that but dude needs longer arms he just gets into wars and lacks the power to bail him out

                    I have a good feeling it will be stopped in the distance as well. Not sure if Parker and I agree on who does the stopping though.....
