Just looking at quality of opposition alone, I'd have to go with Parker by stoppage. I looked at Fa's record and didn't recognize a single fighter he's faced whereas Parker has several "known" fighters on his resume with Joshua, Ruiz and Whyte leading the way of the ones I know about.

I'll need to watch some Fa fights before I vote, hope I can find some. Just had a look at his boxrec and only recognise one name.
I heard he looked like shit in one fight where he arguably lost, which is crazy because he's fought no one :lol:. I've never seen Fa fight, but I do know he was held pretty high when he turned pro.

The WBO have elevated Daniel Dubois to number 2. Above Joseph Parker who has been dropped down to number 3.

Haven't heard much from Junior Fa. Here's his take on things :


"We're going into the finer details, making sure there is no grey area in the contract" - Fa.

"We just want to make sure everything is airtight, so it's basically me versus him".
Never going to happen then, alright. :patsch

Like I said in the Lopez/Lomachenko thread, as soon as you hear shit like this, it's done. Fight will hit every fucking curve imaginable.

Hard to know what Fa is thinking? A $500,000 pay check should be very attractive to him. But maybe he is playing the long game and thinks if he avoids trouble long enough eventually something extremely lucrative with fall in his lap. Something akin to Mark de Mori getting the fight with David Haye.

The dubious one has fought absolutely no one so far. Well, Gorman was a passable win, I guess, but that's it.
Still, at least he hasn't lost yet, so I can see an argument for him being above Parker.
Sort of.

As for Fa, he's got a long reach, and knows how to use it, plus he goes to the body like Rocky Balboa.
- But his defense is basically non-existent, and his offense is extremely one-dimensional.

He might be able to keep Parker off him & do some damage, due to his reach, but the aggressive Parker of old (does he still exist? ) would probably eat him for lunch.

Well, at the end of the day, who the heck cares about this fight, anyway?

Who cares you ask? There is little else to care about in these parts at the present time.

As for the aggressive Joseph Parker. Memories. Sweet memories.

"In the past, I've been too safe and not taking the risks that I need,” Joseph Parker said.

“From now on it's going to be a lot more aggression and you've got to throw punches to win. Hopefully it's going to be a lot of combinations and punches in bunches".


@Cableaddict I knew you would want to hear this.

thx!

Well, talk is cheap, but it's good he's extremely aware of the problem. The lad is still only 28 y-o, so he should have enough gas in the tank.
If he's really planning to get back to his old self, then Fah is a pretty good test.

Let's hope he has a new trainer, or at least a serious addition to his team. Kevin Barry is useless. Meat & Potatoes basic, and no concept of defense.
Imagine what David Tua could have been, with someone like Freddy Roach or Manny Steward training him. Ugonoh eventually wised up, but it was a bit too late & his career may never recover.
