    The Croatian crushes the friendly Kiwi.

    Parker is like HW jacobs. Seems to have all the all-around qualities to be great, not really TERRIBLE in anything, but just doesn't seem to have the ring iq or will to win to pull it out against top competition.

    People don't want to hear this because the narrative is Usyk struggled with Chisora and got hurt, when really Chisora came in with a very good gameplan and conditioning (Pressure the pure boxer, the stylistic deficit) almost like Wallin( Who is nowhere near Chisora btw) and Usyk hurt his left-hand. Still beat Chisora to a pulp and had him out on his feet several times. If Usyk looked a certain way no one would say anything man.

    Parker by TKO late rounds. Who has Hrgovic actually been tested against? I get that Parker has been a bit dry as of late, but he's only just switched trainers and still has plenty of room to grow.

    Because Hunter doesn't want to take a risk. He's one of the biggest mouths in boxing and is currently enjoying mouthing off about everything as if he is someone worthy of authority.

    He is dining out off the back of a draw with old Povetkin, in a bout where he didn't hurt Povetkin once and was lucky not to have his KD counted when he was kept up by the ropes, and was thus gifted the draw.

    He will be found out very soon. Totally overrated.

    He has the qualities to be a good heavyweight, but certainly not a great.

    Parker like the other heavyweights is shook of Hrgovic.

    I doubt the fight will ever happen.

    Fights AJ in his backyard but is scared of someone with a record more abysmal than Wilders? Ok.

    I think he's just doing the right thing there. Gives Chisora a chance to avenge a very close match (unlike Whyte who ran from Parker after been saved by the bell).

    Might look that way but i doubt if more money was offered for this possible fight he would

    Its the most rewarding fight for him financially

    Parker's ambition and boxing talent is long gone. The Stone Man will be the first to stop him.
