Higgins Says Parker Could Handle Wilder

While Deontay Wilder has been taking up real estate in the lead up to Joseph Parker’s heavyweight unification fight against Anthony Joshua, David Higgins isn’t worried about the WBC champion.

When asked about Wilder and his last fight against Luis Ortiz, Higgins gave an honest assessment

“I think that Wilder has got a dynamite right hand that can knock out any heavyweight if he lands it, but I also thought he lacked good technique.”

And while a potential Joshua-Parker match may not be on the horizon, Higgins believes that Parker would have the advantage if it ever came to pass.

“He was sort of wide open and I think that anyone who can box well and… I think that Parker can definitely beat him just by boxing well and punching straight as Wilder is there to be hit.”
