    Exactly. Same people would complain if he was Ill in the ring or looked terrible, they would start berating his management team etc for letting him fight.

    'Following detailed medical assessment, doctors have confirmed that Joseph Parker is not physically able to train or fight until medical clearance is given'

    I bet Parker is the Kiwi sports star who allegedly financed a US/Kiwi drug syndicate and he's about to be named

    Everyone gets ill from time to time.
    Bit silly to assume Parker's bottled it, considering his record in turning up for fights has always been good.
    He has a win over Andy Ruiz, went 12 rounds with Joshua, and was unlucky not to get a draw at least with Whyte. It's a stretch to think he's spooked by Chisora.

    Just read up on that. Interesting. Whoever that is has fought and lost twice to have their name protected with the best legal defence money can buy in NZ.

    They had one last chance at keeping his name suppressed but think that was in August, so if they haven't won that, he could be about to be named

    Someone else posted "i give the guy a punchers chance at getting away with it" on the news outlet's tweet of the article

    Those articles are over a month old, but yeah - there have been some extremely concerning rumours going the grapevine in NZ lately. Not someone I'd have expected this from at all, and completely changes my opinion of him if it turns out to be true.

    The guy suffered a bad head butt and got up twice from Whyte's punches.
    GTF!
