Default Is Joseph Parker The Best Prospect In The Heavyweight Division?

Is Samoan Parker the best prospect out of the young gun heavyweights? 15-0 at the moment.
His next fight is against Kali Meehan 15th dec.

There was an almost identical thread a few days ago. No, right now Joshua is. Joshua has 1. better resume (although if Parker ko's Meehan, that will come close to evening it up) 2. Better size 3 more apparent power 4 better movement. The big questions for Joshua are chin and defense. Time will tell, maybe Parker will be better, but right now, Joshua deserves the title best prospect.

Good power but looks pretty raw with not much of a jab and not great defensively, I see Joshua beating him easily. Whyte also just destroyed a guy in a round that took him 4 rounds to finish

Nah, that title goes to Joshua. Guy is roided to the gills.

He just might be during this time when there's plenty of new blood. His reach could be a cause for concern but he looks polished already, mixes his punches well, sets things up from a regular jab and can crunch with either hand. Best yet, at 23 he has plenty of time to improve, not that I expect him to drag out his apprenticeship.

Joseph and Anthony Joshua may be meeting in two years time to decide who's the best in the world.

Joshua sure seems to be, but you can't condemn a boxer on suspicion

Pretty much would say Anthony Joshua is the best HW prospect at the moment

I can and I will. Guy is on steroids and probably growth hormone aswell.

He has gained an unheard of amount of lean muscle mass and has the physique of a heavy steroid abuser. It's very evident. Getting arms and shoulders like that while having 6ish% bodyfat without any illegal assistance is impossible.

Let's look at a comparison between Wladimir who's a specimen of a man who's been boxing for decades and a young AJ.

Nitpicking about comparing his stoppage of cCosta Jr to whyte, otherwise I agree..... But he can definitely improve his jab, and defense with time.
