Parker Very Confident His Chin Will Take Dillian Whyte's Power

By Ryan Burton

Joseph Parker (24-1) doesn't expect his fight against Dillian Whyte (23-1) to go the distance.  The Sky Sports pay-per-view event takes place July 28th at the O2 Arena.

The 26-year-old Kiwi is very confident that he will be the second man to stop Whyte.

"I think so. I think one punch to the chin - not my chin - will end in a nice result in the UK," revealed Parker.

The former WBO champion was last in action in March when he lost his belt to Anthony Joshua, who also holds the WBA, IBF, IBO world titles.  Even though he lost Parker became the first man to go the distance against the hard hitting Joshua, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

While Parker is confident that his chin will hold up, he knows that anything is possible once you step inside the square circle.

"I back my chin but boxing is a funny game where one punch at the right time no matter how good your chin is or how strong you are can change everything.  But saying that, I still back myself," Parker told BoxingScene.com.

Whyte's only loss was also against Joshua but he was stopped in 7 rounds in 2015. He had Joshua in trouble early on, but he was slowly broken down and put away by the Olympic gold medal winner. Parker said that knockout may have happened for a variety of a reasons.

"Maybe it was his chin or defense or he wasn't cautious enough.  There are a few different aspects you can look at but we can use all of that to implement in our game plan," said Parker.

Whyte also last fought in March when he scored a highlight reel knockout of the previously unbeaten Lucas Browne.
