    Does this change the way people see Parker - since he is the only man to beat Ruiz?

    People who actually know boxing already know that Parker-AJ was a close fight. It was arguably a draw on the cards.

    Also people who actually know boxing know that the referee screwed Parker against Whyte.

    I always gave Parker his respect, and found it pathetic when people on here doubted his heart, fire in his belly yadda yadda.

    Fools.

    Parker is underrated as ****.

    I don't doubt Parker.. but he got his gameplan wrong vs AJ and Whyte. Parker still could one day win a world title though, he is young enough.

    The same as always.

    Had Parker fought more bravely and wasn't fighting the ref and AJ, he'd have won the fight.

    I hope so, I like Parker.


    Makes me wonder if Parker believed a little more and went for it a little more... he might have beaten AJ.

    He seemed to give up due to the ref which I can't blame him for. That ref was pathetic.

    Parker's always been around the top 5 mark for me. It's why i believed Ruiz' performance against him was noteworthy against all the Ruiz trashing. You can't call Ruiz a no hoper against AJ given their respective performances against a calibre of boxer Parker is.

    I have wondered why Parker didn’t go after a fight with Wilder as his comeback route, imo he’d be too fast and durable for Wilder

    I think Parker could’ve got a draw against Joshua but I couldn’t stand his lack of fire. That is a legitimate criticism of Parker, and why I don’t care to see him against anyone.
