I was thinking more of Wilder with the better boxer comment. However, I don't think Parker can beat Joshua. Wilder if he comes out swinging is more dangerous.

I'm hoping Parker can score himself a win, but I honestly don't see it happening

I don't think Parker can beat Joshua, either. I just think Parker loses out on physicality, not on skill or fight IQ. Wilder is indeed very dangerous, and I cannot fucking wait to see him fight Joshua.

Who do you think won GGG vs. Canelo? Or did you agree with the "draw"?

It says a lot about the current state of the heavyweight division that someone as unskilled as Wilder can have a 10-year reign.

Holy shit! Biggest contract in sports history.

Canelo Alvarez signs 5-year, 11-fight deal worth minimum $365 million with DAZN

I guess boxing isn't dead. ;)

Fury-Wilder was a decent fight, but it had no business being in a title fight. Both are totally unskilled fighters.

The heavyweight division is in a sad state right now. :shake:

If you missed HBO Boxing's last broadcast, here's the send-off. I like that the first actual punches you see thrown are from Gatti-Ward. :luv:
