Parker going life and death with Delboy is a terrible look. Getting dropped, only winning a split. I think hes done as far as the very top goes. Doesnt get close to AJ, Fury, Wilder, Usyk.

Put him in there with Hrgovic for a laugh
Dropped with a haymaker in the first 7 seconds, AJ would batter him.

There worse fighters than AJ who would batter him tbh. Top 4 beat him easily, those below like Ruiz, Ortiz, Dubois, Hrgovic, Hunter probably all beat him. Im not convinced he gets by Dubois anymore tbh.

Isn't it slightly risky to be fighting a month out from the Olympics? Surely you wouldn't want to jeopardise that with any kind of injury.
Yeah it's risky but it's also $500K or so in pocket. He's won silver at the world champs anyway (so may feel hes done the amateur work if he does get injured) plus he is a prize fighter now. I'd suggest pro record > Olympics in the grand scheme of his career hence wanting the fight.

Him and his camp probably also think they'll win pretty easily with no injury and it's good prep for the Olympics to have a proper fight camp...

Fwiw i think he gets through Gallen without too much hassle. 4-6 weeks recovery after this one will be enough

Seems the Tszyu Train is stopping all stations, no express service to the US and a world-class opponent. I'll reluctantly pay the cash, to see Zerafa face his moment of judgment and in the hope that the undercard is a decent one.

Lopez v Kambosos will likely be delayed a couple of weeks, to avoid a clash with the Mayweather v Paul fiasco in Miami on the same weekend. A stay of execution for George.

But I did read that he'll earn US $2.1 million for the fight, which is decent money for a beating.

Super Tottenham....from the Lane.
I think he batters Zerafa too

Wont bother guessing whats next. Was supposed to be Texiera 3 fights ago now. Ill believe he takes the step up to world class opponents when hes standing across from one.
The last guy he beat up had come off two title challenges. He wasn't a mug by any means. Zerafa is classes below that.

Hogan v Zerafa was probably a better fight to make and Tim had many better options but few as easy with the money attached that this will be.

Comfortable stoppage I think. Just hoping for decent odds on it

Was just looking for odds but couldn't find any early markets. I would be surprised if you can get anything better than $1.10 the win and about $1.30 the KO.

Zerafa is a mug. I shall enjoy watching Tzsyu shut his mouth for him.

I think the stoppage will be higher than that but you're probably spot on with the h2h market
