    Joshua only just won Parker on points in reality, scorecards a joke, referee split them up whenever Parker tried to get inside so couldn’t fight his fight even at 17stone 4 josh looked slow Eddie hearn and josh won’t move out of U.K. where they are protected does anybody else see what’s going on here. Ps another 6ft 2 inch, 16 stone fighter beats 6ft 8, 18 stone super heavyweight,(Povetkin,price) shock horror anyone who follows my posts will know what I mean by that.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Even if he sparked Parker out, fought in America, beat every one in the top 10..trust me you would still find something to hate on him.

    Oh and dont say your not hating. Joshua wins and you post a thread bashin him the next day!
    Saying there protected lol why would they want to fight in America it dont mean nothing these days...they making plentyof money over here!

    Im glad he hasnt thought in America yet. He doing fine over here. Who's over in America??? The heavyweight division is DEAD over there. Wilder is all talk he don't want none of Joshua. Joshua would box his head off all night.

    Only true test for AJ is Tyson Fury.

    Of course I’m posting next day the fight was last night,when am I supposed to post next week or when a new fight is on the horizon, not hating but he didn’t knock him out did he and the scorecards were closer and the ref did ruin Parker’s only way of fighting Joshua on the inside by splitting them up every time there was an exchange which seems a little fishy doesn’t it for what it’s worth I think josh will beat wilder, don’t rate him but to keep fighting in your own back yard is not something some of the great heavyweight’s of the past did they fought all over, nobody’s talking about America in particular but it is going to help your cause if you are on home soil every time isn’t it, and yes Tyson fury if can get anything near what he was 2 years ago then yes.but the next fight will be a 38 year old Povetkin on home soil not offer wilder what him and his belt is worth to unify over here to really make the fight too much of a cash cow going on over here don’t you agree?

    You wrote Joshua when you meant Wilder. Look at his first 21.

    Last night was perhaps his first fight against a young 'top level' fighter. He won easily. Even people who said cards were too much only gave parker 4 rounds.

    Protected. Behave.

    Yep last night was the first young top level fighter he fought and he laboured to a points victory which was closer than the cards suggested but no one seems to be answering the question about the referee ,come on people surley he hindered Parker’s fighting style or are you too much of Joshua fan boys to ignore the points provided in previous posts and yeah wilders first 38 fights were tomato cans don’t disagree with that like I said before let’s hope they offer wilder enough to fight for his belt if he really wants to take it off him,not just offer peanuts so fight doesn’t happen for a while and wilder gets older while Joshua tries to iron out his weak points or am I being a bit too cynical?

    You need to hit that enter button and space them words out im hungover so all those words look like a blur.

    Im not suprised it went to points. I said AJ by late stoppage or points.
    No offence mate but you sound so miserable. Last night was one step closer to big Joshua being unified champ!!

    You could of put any ref in that ring last night and it wouldnt of made any diffrence. Joshua was always going to win. They could fight another 10 times with 10 different refs and it would all be the same outcome. Joshua winning.

    Seriously try going to see one of his fights live. Dont start on the whole "casuals do my head in etc" talk. I GUARANTEE you that you will have an amazing night.

    You might be right, Parker was not as good as I thought he would be but ref definitely spoiled the fight, you must admit Joshua struggled hitting Parker a lot of the time last night he looked slower than when he weighed that amount a couple of years ago don’t you think?

    Parker is not exactly twinkle toes but lumbering Joshua sure made him look it. Protected and hyped is a given as long as they are all going to the bank.

    I thought it was an excellent boxing display from Joshua. He actually boxed really really well. The ref was awful but that’s not AJ’s fault. I was really genuinely impressed with performance. He was selfish in that he didn’t care what the crowd wanted to see, he used his natural advantages much like what Tyson Fury does, in avoiding a toe to toe slug fest and instead used his brain to box intelligently. He proved that he isn’t just a one trick pony who knocks people out.

    The thing that impressed me the most, and I think this deserves a mention...his defence was bang on. He made himself very difficult to hit. He stepped off, moved well, jabbed and tied up when he needed. I think that really surprised Parker that he resisted a tear up.

    Before I get called a fanboy, I’ve criticised the lad tons over the years. Credit where it’s due. An eyesore of a fight, but sometimes you have to be selfish.
