    Who do you think Parker beats in the top 10 based on his performance against Joyce? He landed some brutal shots and absorbed a heap of punishment. How do you think that stacks up against others in the division? He'll fight damn near anyone which is a breath of fresh air, and we need more fighters who do that.

    Parker v Wallin would be a pretty interesting match up tbh, not sure how well Parker does against southpaw.

    Don't see him beating any of the top 10, maybe Ortiz. I can't see Parker beating any of the top 15 even, something went very wrong with him, while he could have been a real trouble for most of the elites. He can try fighting Pulev because he's definitely old, but needs to work on his attack, cardio and drop below 110 kg.

    Parker’s team got it all wrong for the Joyce fight.Parker came in far too heavy for the fight with Joyce,I’m not saying a lighter Parker would have beaten Joyce but his cardio,movement and elusiveness would have been a lot better .

    TBR top 10.

    C- Usyk- loses
    1. Fury- loses
    2. Joyce - loses
    3. Wilder- could beat
    4. Joshua-loses
    5. Ruiz- would depend on what Ruiz turns up. Ruiz of the first AJ fight would beat him, the Joshua 2 one he'd beat.
    6. Wallin - beats
    7. Whyte- possibly beats looked shot v Franklin
    8. Ortiz - beats
    9. Parker
    10. Sanchez - beats

    The guys he'd beat Wallin, Ortiz and Sanchez would be quite boring fights I think

    So I'd like to see him in with Wilder or rematches with Ruiz or Whyte

    Id like to see Parker v Whyte run again and would suit them both at this point in there careers,as well as the fact that Whyte owes Parker a rematch anyway imo .

    I think he's done. He could beat one or two of the other guys who are done, depending on how done they all are. Could maybe see him in a weird split with Sanchez.

    Parker has always flattered to deceive imo. Wasted what talent he has tbh. Anytime he has been invited to the top table he has done nowt to justify his presence!! Based on recent performances he wont beat any of the top 10 as he ISNT a top 10 fighter. In short he is done

    Do think he seems to lack a bit of ambition. Seemed happy to lose v Joshua. Has become a cuckold for Fury rather than wanting to knock off the top dog. And was giving rounds away v the likes of Hughie, Chisora 1, Whyte that was really there to win.

    Very rarely see him pushing for a stoppage too. And between the biggish fights he fights nobodies on undercards. Not many others of the top 10s/former champs would be happy fighting a few down the bill

    Whyte won because a clash of heads was scored as a knockdown ! as well as the fact Whyte was fouling at will and the Ref did nothing. Parker should have been given an immediate rematch .
