Parker: Joshua Wasn’t The Hardest Puncher I’ve Faced
As former WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker prepares for Dillian Whyte in July in London, Joseph Parker talked about changes he’d want to make from his last fight.
Parker would take WBA/IBF/IBO and now WBO world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to the distance for the first time in his career, and while he may have lost the fight, Parker was glad he could experience that night.
“I thought it was a great experience being part of this massive event. Leading up to the fight we were excited and confident. During the fight I thought everything went well but now that we have had time to sit down and watch the fight there are a few things we want to change up and a few things we think we can improve on if we get to fight him in the future,” said Parker.
Parker in an interview with Boxing Scene, stated that he can’t rate Joshua’s power to previous opponents, but definitely had been hit harder in prior fights.
“From the fight that we had in the 12 rounds there wasn’t anything big that caught me so I can’t really judge his power but I have been hit harder by other fighters. Probably he would have had to hit me flush to really be able to judge.”
