    Oh my. The wlad that turned up to fight aj absolutely batters him. Fury wlad not so much. Wlad was on the war path in that aj fight. I have not seen him fight like that in a long time.

    If parker beats whyte Deontay should make every effort to fight him. He won't though. Unless he has no choice. I would think he'd also hate to fight whyte at this point. Both of them could become his mandatory.

    And no. I hope we don't see a rematch of the parker fight. No one is interested in that.

    No one is expecting Parker to win this fight has only been set up to make it an eliminator for AJ to make the april AJ vs Whyte fight as big as possible.

    I dunno. I see it as a 50/50 But know for a fact whyte is going to bring it to parker way more than the terrible aj fight.

    Im of the opinion that after seeing the fight with AJ folks are going to look to really go after Parker aggressively.

    I expect Whyte to come out throwing leather early and often.

    It's probably the way to go. Dillian is aggressive anyways and think he will test parkers chin more than anyone has yet. Parker i feel probably has a better gas tank and might possibly out point him in those later rounds.

    I would favour whyte knocking him out earlier though.

    I can’t wait for this fight, I think it’s going to be a cracker. Both durable as fck, both can bang a bit; I think they are going to slug it out. Slightly favour Parker I think

    I’d like Parker to win but don’t want to see him rematch AJ, so I’ll sit in the fence and just enjoy this one.

    I hope to see Parker come out with bad intentions.

    Wlad might have been at his limit due to age but that was a fantastic performance by him which he hasn't shown for years. He'd of decimated Ortiz if they'd have fought. Ortiz was too short and with a big reach disadvantage that Wlad would have eaten him for breakfast.

    At some point you're cutting off your nose to spite your face. He should fight for a better deal but the fight should get made and he can have the last laugh by winning the fight. It will be more money than he's making otherwise but the prestige of being unified champ will probably push him toward signing.

    Honestly it would not make me happier to see Povetkin beat AJ....that would be hilarious for all involved.

    Povetkin is a very good boxer, top 5 easy. Very possible, but i think AJ will Jab his face off.

    The problem with that is, even if Povetkin were to beat AJ twice and retain the belts. Wilder would avoid a fight with him just as much, if not more than AJ.

    I think he'll go for the KO BUT it looks like Parker has a really good pacific islander chin, so can Whyte hurt him?

    I dunno man. Tbh I really haven't seen his chin tested properly. I think it's overblown frankly just becasue he's never been down. Dillian will test it. If parker comes through then yes.

    I think though that besides povetkins obvious previous ped history he gets a raw deal. He has pissed hot absolutely and is a twat hammock for doing so. But the man has also only lost to wlad in a fight where wlad should have clearly been warned and disqualified ten times over. Anyone who hasn't seen wlad vs povetkin should watch it to see how much of a cheating bastard wlad could be.

    Not taking anything away from wlad as champ but fucking hell that fight was a joke.

    Here's 25 minutes of wlad initiating more clinches than he throws punches.

    Edit- plus throwing, wrestling, leaning and phantom given knock downs. Absolutely insane.
