Joshua has a proven track record of predicting fights correctly, after correctly predicting Dillian Whyte’s sixth round stoppage of Lucas Browne and making a decent profit from bookies in the process.
During an interview with Boxing News Online, The champ has now made a prediction on his bout with Parker:
I won a cheeky £650 from that Whyte fight – I was buzzing, and do you know what’s interesting? For my last four fights, I’ve been exactly on, or a round out. So what’s the pick for Saturday? Now it’s on my mind I have to match my good record but I’m no Muhammad Ali [when it comes to predicting fights]. One thing I used to think was, when you say it’s going four rounds and you’re opponent is still in there in round eight and you’re thinking…’oh no’.
Before Carlos Takam I said 10 rounds, I said I’d beat him in ten rounds and I did. I always say, mentally, I’m ready to go 12 rounds. But, if everything goes to plan I think people fade between round eight and nine. I think Parker will fade around eight or nine.
I’m not saying I’m coming to be marching forward, but you meet him at a distance and you meet him coming in from distance. Position the hands and footwork. Establish a range early on, and the difference is I know how to counter punch. I haven’t seen Parker counter punching anyone.
I’ll punish him when he’s throwing at me and I’ll punish him when he’s thinking of throwing at me. I’ll break him down. Rounds five to eight, it’ll be a tough night. But, I feel really good.
