    I cannot see anything but this tbh. All the guys know their stuff on this forum, but some are predicting a Parker win? Unless he has dramatically improved overnight he will lose.

    Chapman vs Guanini 1/3 vs 9/4
    Essuman vs Antwi 1/2 vs 6/4
    Heaney vs Flatley 1/5 vs 10/3
    Magnesi vs Caccace 11/8 vs 8/15
    Joyce vs Parker 1/2 vs 13/8

    Has there been a better matched card in the last two/three years?

    Flatley to beat Heaney on points at 6-1 is good odds - not been impressed when I've seen Heaney, he's a ticket seller but that's about it!

    I'm going. My brother got some free tickets through work.

    Looking forward to it. Who wins depends on what Parker shows up. Joyce will plow forward and Parker will probably get on his bike. He will be able to tag Joyce at will, but Joyce could wear him down and get success later on in the fight. If Parker is up for it and doesn't fight too tentatively he could nick it on points (home town decision not withstanding).

    Either way, I think it will be close and go to the cards.

    Should be a decent scrap.

    For once I actually believe that Parker will be a bit more aggressive. I'm not sure why, as I think Andy Lee is prone to talking guff at times. Parker probably thinks that he won't be able to knock Joyce out, so will primarily be trying to win on points. I think the home town decision conundrum will lead him into being more aggressive.

    I'd like to see knockdowns but can't imagine it, both are hard to put down. Joyce apparently has the bone mineral density six times the average man, and he looks it.

    It's good for this card that there's no Premier League football on. Means they'll probably get more views.

    It's a tough fight to call for me so gone for a draw at 20/1

    I think Joyce will slowly grind Parker down and knock him out in the later rounds

    Joyce should stop Parker late but wouldn’t be surprised if Parker lasts the distance

    Parker 18st 3Ibs
    Joyce 19st 5Ibs

    Both coming in very heavy and could be a real slugfest in the battle of the chins

    Joyce wins this. Joyce has always blocked shots with his face and will be caught out for it one day but this isn’t the fight in my opinion. I think he’ll look good, jab and walk him down, landing them thudding but not concussive shots. I dare say he may get him out late.

    I disagree, i see a much improved Parker TBH.
    JJ has only one thing in his favour and that is his drive and great chin, sadly i see this one coming down to one thing and it all points to him getting beat, i do not think for one minute it will be easy for JP, but it all points down to how many times you can get clipped on that chin, at some point the chin will tell the head enough is enough and fail him...

    What are you basing these improvements on? He’s fought a washed up Chisora twice, and some people thought he lost the first fight. He either couldnt or wouldn’t finish him in the 2nd fight, when Derek was begging to be KO’d.

    He could well have suddenly improved in the last year and look great tomorow, but there’s no real evidence to support that IMO.

    He’s getting Juggernauted tomorow and William Hills will see me in the morning, putting down a few pennies on Joyce by KO.

    I really like Joyce but I wasn't impressed with his last performance - he took way to many clean shots and eventually even his chin is going to crack.

    However Parker's last fight against Chisora is the best I've seen him. He seemed a lot more heavy handed than usual. The only thing that bugged is he should have had Chisora out of there early but instead let it drag on. If he can get the killer instinct into his mindset he could be more than a handful
