    I can’t think of a single attribute which Parker does better than Joshua.

    I am not even convinced Parker beats Daniel Dubois or wins in rematches against Joe Joyce or Dillian Whyte.

    Parker could well have beaten him the first time if he put it on the line like Ruiz. If he'd made AJ doubt by putting him under pressure, AJ might have crumbled there. But Parker played it very safe.
    Now he's older and is getting dropped a bit in recent years, ironically not by Wilder, but not sure if he's lost some resistance or just getting hit harder.

    I think he might beat AJ now but AJ is getting more confident with these manufactured wins and even if he's too dumb to realise the wins are manufactured, he still gets the confidence from them. Straight after Usyk Parker would have a better chance, but there's a reason they've been protecting AJ.

    I recently watched AJ-Parker. At this moment I'd slightly favor AJ, but a rematch could be very competitive.
    The ref is neutral and, of course, judges. In their first fight the ref was ridiculously biased in AJs favor. A true "home ring" advantage.

    I think Joseph should rematch and avenge Whyte or Joyce. He can win either of those fights.

    If Parker couldn't KO a weak, defenseless Wilder, he isn't going to KO AJ.
    And if he got knocked down and barely won vs a big fat HW he isn't going to win against
    a newly motivated AJ.

    This time AJ knocks him out.

    This is actually a great fight. Good gauge to see where they're going.

    I'd like to see the joyce re-match, that would give us a better idea of how much joe has actually improved in recent times.
    Yeh, he's beat a big plodder in zhang that didnt throw and the ghost of wilder but its difficult to gauge, really.

    I'd like to see how he does against the juggernaut again myself.

    Yep - all the guys who were talking up Zhang and Wilder - predicting Parker would be KO-ed early

    now come out to diss Joe again. "Terrible shot opponents", etc, etc.

    Not proof just opinion.

    First fight was awful, no interest in seeing it again.

    For me Joshua is better than Parker and first fight show it clear.
    Off course Parker change from that time and he is better now but same with Joshua. Both improve.

    Joshua is bigger man (much bigger reach and height), he is quicker a little, he got better punching power.
    He can box and use his size also.

    And dont want say that Parker dont have any chance. But still favor 70/30 for Joshua.

    Anthony got 2 available option now from top 10. Joyce and Parker. Rest got fight or its to early for them.
    I understand that Joseph deserve fight with Joshua 100% more than Joyce but still I would prefer to watch fight Joyce vs Joshua now.
    Why? I just think it will be more interesting to see how Joshua power and speed will work on Joyce.

    Genuine sportsmanship in a fight loss, and genuine modesty and humbleness in general life.
