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.
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.
Parker - only man to beat the champ
THE REF WAS PROTECTING JOSHUA
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
Yes - I think so, Clan
I still think he needs a new trainer
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.
