    Yeah i tend to agree with what ur saying. Just dont think he has that extra urge to do something.....was always comfortable being an also ran. He could have achieved more than what he has imo

    He was referring to these rankings, not his own opinion:

    https://tbrb.org/rankings

    Breazeale is Joshua's 8th best opponent beaten and Wallin schooled him. Wallin has not been knocked down in 27 fights or got an A-side decision. He gave Fury a far tougher fight than Whyte or Wilder did the 2nd time, both of whom are ranked above him. And Whyte blatantly ducked him. So it's easy to see why Wallin is ranked highly.

    I don't think Parker would beat Wallin, who has more height and reach, hunger, confidence, determination, southpaw stance (which Parker has not faced since journeyman Jason Bergman back in 2016, who took him 8 rounds) and less wear.

    Wallin needs to be more active tbh it’s as simple as that,his management or who ever have done him no favours ,and I’d still like to see him fight Whyte .

    Parker didn't hit hard enough. As simple as that, fought well but was juggernauted.

    I sure as hell wouldn't want to take the shots Joyce did. He's just a different beast.

    I think he has an iron chin, but if wilder or makhmudov hit him he'd be very groggy.

    True, but I think both of them wouldn't take Joyce walking them down too well either. Makhmudov is still unproven, but with Wilder I guess that right hand could change practically any fight.

    Yes. But I think it would be an absolutely stinking fight so not something I want to see

    Plus, Whyte is shot now. If Parker has any ambition left he beats Whyte in a rematch.
