Parker Is all the RageParker Is all the Rage

Parker and Massey Holding On to Hope

Joseph Parker and Jack Massey can’t afford another loss, otherwise their title fight ambitions are out the window.

New Zealand’s Parker squares off against Brit Massey and all the money has come for Parker, and rightfully so.

The former WBO World Heavyweight champion has the significant class edge and that’s evident with boxing odds.

Let’s check the latest Boxing news, stats, and Boxing lines for Parker vs Massey. We’ve plenty of Boxing picks for you to consider.

Parker Must Throw Combinations

As someone who has watched every one of Parker’s 33 fights, the Kiwi needs to throw combinations.

He was one of the best in his division, but he was far too relaxed in the ring and he never let his hands go, which is why he lost to Joe Joyce, Dillian Whyte, and Anthony Joshua.

His defense is typically good, but he was knocked out by Joyce in the 11th round in September, which wouldn’t have pleased his camp. It was his first knockout loss and even Joshua couldn’t do it.

It came because Parker was a sitting duck. He needs to go on the offensive and there is no excuse to be timid against Massey, who is 20-1 and he hasn’t fought anyone close to the level of Parker.

“Let’s face it, if I lose, I will be way down [the standings],” Parker said. “It will be like, ‘Where is Joseph Parker?”

“I’m in great shape, I’m ready to go. When I’m sleeping well and feeling good I am dangerous. I’ve put in the work and made the sacrifices, because I know what it takes to win.”

However, Parker doesn’t often live up to expectations. The sportsbook has him at -1000, which is fair, but if he thinks this will be a walk in the park, he’s wrong.

Massey Could Struggle with Class

Massey gets the advantage of fighting in front of a home crowd, but it could matter for nothing against Parker.

The 29-year-old is only just inside the top 10 heavyweights in Britain, let alone the world. Therefore, we’re not expecting him to be competitive at this level, but good on him for giving it a go.

He comes off a knockout win over Vaclav Pejsar, which was a two-star fight and now he’s facing a five-star fighter. However, he has won his last three fights by knockout and Parker hasn’t knocked someone out since 2020 when facing mid-level opponents.

If Massey connects to Parker’s chin, he has the power to cause a huge upset with betting online markets. He’s the +600 underdog and +1600 to win by knockout, but if you’re going to bet on Massey, take the +1600.

He won’t win this fight on points because Parker is the much better tactician.
