While fans may have been disappointed by the absence of the anticipated Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder fight announcement, this matchup still promises excitement, featuring intriguing variables.

Both fighters carry three setbacks on their records—Wilder with two knockout defeats and a draw, and Parker with two points losses and a single KO defeat.

Both boxers have previously held world titles, with Parker securing the WBO belt from 2016 to 2018, and Wilder boasting 10 WBC World heavyweight title defenses from 2015 to 2020, matching Muhammad Ali’s record.

Despite Wilder being the heavy favorite, Parker, a close friend and sparring partner of Tyson Fury—who is the only one to defeat Wilder—has some advantages. Training with Fury’s team, led by Andy Lee, in Morecombe, Parker aims to leverage their expertise and prepare for his fourth fight of the year, capitalizing on Wilder’s 14-month hiatus from the ring.

Parker, known for his movement, is expected to adopt a defensive stance in the contest. With a diverse punching arsenal, ample experience, composure under pressure, a sturdy chin, and significant heart, Parker has rebounded from previous losses, winning nine out of his last 10 bouts.

While Wilder, a latecomer to boxing, boasts explosive, rangy, and snappy punching, his style is criticized for its lack of technical finesse. Despite knocking down every opponent he has faced, he is often disparaged for not defeating elite fighters.

Wilder’s power is undeniable, earning him the title of the highest KO-to-win ratios in world heavyweight history. Despite his lack of technical prowess, the 38-year-old’s swift and powerful shots have likened to bullets, notably demonstrated in his epic trilogy against Tyson Fury.

Parker, on the other hand, brings boxing skill to the table. The question remains whether he can outbox the formidable Wilder for the full 12 rounds, avoiding being knocked down, akin to his friend and colleague Fury.
