    Tua. Look at Parker v Ruiz and Parker v Whyte, even to an extent Parker v Takam. None of these guys could possibly be called slick but they all got to Parker on a number of occasions.

    Parker would mostly be outlanding Tua by a 3 to 2 sort of margin. He just isn’t slick enough to constantly move, pick his shots and keep his hands up. As with any fight where he has tried to box from the outside, he will have moments where he stops moving, gets trapped, and just generally comes under fire. Not good against Tua.

    Parker isn't fast enough to keep out the way or hard punching enough to back Tua up.
    Tua early .no count needed

    Parker the better boxer and Tua the bigger puncher. My suspicion is Tua would win by knockout.

    Parker fights like Bryd, like Ali fights like Rocky Marciano. Apples and Oranges. Bryd is faster, slicker and has a way better defense than Parker. Also Tua wasn't at his best then. We are talking the best Tua vs the best Parker.
    I would pick Bryd to outbox Parker as well.

    Tuaminator time travels and knocks Parker out with a devastating hook at round 4.

    This. I can’t see Parker keeping Tua honest for 10 rounds to keep Tua from eventually getting the stoppage.

    Thing about Tua was, he could be outboxed by guys who didn't have a fraction of his power. Byrd did it, Fres Oquendo was a couple rounds way from a clear UD. I wouldn't count out Parker winning a UD.

    It would either go one round or twelve.
    One round: Tua left hooks his head off.
    twelve: Parker wins on points.

    Where did Parker get this reputation as such a good boxer. He's got good technique but I haven't seen any examples of him displaying anything exceptional in the areas of ring generalship, defense, instincts etc
