ANTHONY JOSHUA Vs JOSEPH PARKER : Parker To Lose, He Lacks Defence And Power – Dillian Whyte
IBF, IBO, WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) and WBO Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) will be putting down third titles and unbeaten records on the line at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on March 31 and Dallian Whyte gives his thoughts on the Bout.
Just as every pundit in the Boxing world, Whyte thinks Joseph Parker will prove every one wrong, if he defeats Anthony Joshua come March 31st, sighting two problems, “Power and Defence” for his opinion.
“Parker’s got two problems,” Whyte explained to IFL TV.
“He’s a come-forward fighter and he ain’t got a good defence. He hasn’t got a lot of power.
“Quick hands but not enough power so I think he will struggle there because Joshua likes come-forward fighters and Parker will be falling into punches.”
Whyte who has also been defeated by Anthony Joshua back in 2015, believes that the lack of big fights for Parker will make his fight in front of 80,000 or 90,000 in Cardiff to be overwhelming for Parker.
“They’re both going to hungry… but I just think Joseph Parker isn’t used to fighting away, he hasn’t had any really big fights,” he added.
“He’s going to go to Cardiff in front of 80,000 or 90,000 and they’re going to swallow him up.
“When he comes out, they’re going to be saying ‘AJ, AJ’. I think he’s going to fall in the lights.
“I think AJ will step back and look to land straight right-hand, left-hook and I think he’ll have a lot of problems with that.”
