Former world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is confident that you can’t judge the chances of Alexander Usik and Joe Joyce in the upcoming fight based on their fight in the semi-professional World Series of Boxing (WSB). Despite the fact that the Ukrainian then confidently won by a referee decision, Parker believes that now the fight between Usik and Joyce will be different.
According to the New Zealand boxer, both of his competitors in the division have made significant progress since their meeting in 2013.
“You can’t go back to their amateur career or World Series of Boxing and say that they will be the same as then. Much has changed since then. They both have become much better. They have had a lot of fights, gained a lot of experience. the one who better fulfills the battle plan or cleanly catches the opponent, “- said Joseph Parker in an interview with YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
Recall that Parker also told who he considers the favorite in the battle Usyk – Joyce.
