It makes sense to have Pulev first then push for the unification vs Wilder after the Fury rematch. Usyk then gets first dibs.

Funny how AJ he will have a resume of Whyte, Klitschko, Takam, Parker, Ruiz, Pulev, Povetkin and Usyk and Wilder who has been pro 4 years longer will have a resume of Fury.

It's a decent fight, Whyte recently had life and death with Del so if Usyk can make it easy work that will be impressive. Del is one of the best gatekeepers at the mo like it or not, it's certainly a better test than Chazz was

Parker to fight in the US in late Feb against TBA.

Higgins states it will be someone decent, a step up from Lepai, then they will fight one of the big boys later in the year.

Which if true, makes Parker - Usyk for the vacant WBO less likely.

Therefore Usyk - Chisora, or Usyk - Joshua must be more likely.
There's talk at the moment that sky may have outbid BT sports for the Fury Wilder rematch, if so there's a chance we see Parker on that undercard, the time of year adds up.

It will be the IBF first as they’ve called their mandatory. No chance Hearn allows AJ to vacate that because he will lose control of that belt. Usyk vs Parker is still an in-house fight .

IBF and WBO have both called, and can't agree who goes first.

I have been saying for months it would be Joshua - Pulev for IBF and Usyk - Parker for WBO. Just makes the most sense.

I'm no longer sure on that however, seems like Parker is having an easier fight first. Maybe because of the spider bite.

stick Parker in with Hrgovic, Hearn has all these heavyweights but wont match them against each other the cunt, its always building fights.
