    Joseph Parker vs Joe Joyce: this is an interesting heavyweight matchup coming up this weekend. Both are ranked in the top ten at heavyweight by nearly everybody.

    Who will you be rooting for?

    I find Parker's fights rather dull to watch, while Joyce goes for the KO which makes the fights more entertaining. So I'm hoping Joyce wins.

    I will be rooting for the Juggernaut, first off hes a Brit, secondly he has not had opportunity to challenge for a world title so like to see him have opportunity before Father Time catches up with him.

    I am looking forward to the bout, as if both are on form each will pose the other with a test to overcome.

    I certainly understand those rooting for Joyce, in many ways it'd be better for the division if he won convincingly, but as a Kiwi and long-term Parker fan (well before he became well-known globally) it's clear who I'm supporting. May the best man win.

    joyce, no doubt. I dont know why but I like joyce's work in the ring. He's weird, yes, I know. But I like guys who can get big achievements "their own way" and with hard work. Probably that's why.

    naturally I would be rooting for Joe Joyce. Cannot dislike Parker though.

    After Parker has sweeped the early rounds I will be balls to the wall rooting for Joyce. Then when Parker slows and Joyce is putting it on him people in the neighbourhood will think I'm getting taken from behind from screaming Big Joe's name. GIVE IT TO HIM PROPER. OOOO JOE.

    Personally, I have nothing against Joseph Parker, I am neutral about him. I'am rooting for Joe Joyce and will win because he has the heart to do it...

    I like both guys, both seem to be genuinely nice guys and both are willing to take risks and take tough fights.

    But I'll be rooting for Joyce. I think he has a higher ceiling in terms of where he can go and we've already seen Parker at the top level. So I want to see Joyce face some if not all the top guys and that means getting past Parker.

    But if Parker wins I won't be disappointed, especially if he shows some dramatic improvements.

    Joyce.

    I think both are nice guys but Joyce feels like he has the most potential (despite being 100 years old). With Parker we kind of know what we're getting and where his ceiling is.

    I don't have any real favourite in this fight as I like both guys - really hoping to see Parker show a step-up in aggression under Andy Lee, and for both guys to bring out the best in each other.

    If that can happen this could be a really doozy - but it could also be very dull if it doesn't
