Ref ruined the flow, I reckon Parker would've landed a few close body shots to AJ

AJ utter shite.

Been protected from day one.

That was a closer fight than the judges scored.

Wilder would stop AJ inside 6 if Hearn has the balls to make it happen. But instead he’d rather put Dillian Whyte up against any possible decent opponent.

Nah AJ had it early rounds, and then in the late rounds.

It was scored correctly.

Only watched via Youtube as was out… Dull fight and AJ seems happy to do enough to shade rounds without committing himself or throwing power punches. Yes he's probably incredibly difficult to beat but it just seems boring!

AJ threw about 5 punches in twelve rounds.

Not good enough for what he’s hyped up to be.

AJ is boring AF to watch, he just doesn't really do anything. Young and looks in incredible shape for a heavyweight but never seems to outwork opponents. That said he was the deserved winner last night.

Don't understand why Parker didn't just throw caution to the wind and try to knock him out in the last couple of rounds.

I’m not saying AJ is the next big thing.
He’s obviously well managed and somewhat manufactured but Parker is a decent fighter and deserved respect.
Joshua has a suspect chin but it’s in no way glass, so keeping Parker at distance was a tactical no brainier. He was a little punch shy but I’m hearing Joshua broke his right hand early on but that’s unconfirmed as yet.
If you look back on history ALL good fighters have had fights like this. Parker has a great chin and leaving himself wide open with wild attacks would’ve played into Parker’s hands.
Not every one is a barnstormer, take the tinted specs off and you can find some real boring 12-15 rounders from Ali, Tyson, Lewis etc


Joshua has beat everyone put in front of him so far and has ducked nobody.
You can’t blame AJ for what’s around right now.
If he fights Wilder and Fury in the next 18 months you can’t really criticise him can you?

Obviously a couple of good knockouts wouldn’t go amiss as the buzz is somewhat fading but I think he was smart last night even though it was a snooze fest.
FWIW I think he’d knock Wilder out.
I do think a fit Fury would outpoint him though.

The heavyweight division isn’t as healthy as some believe. It’s interesting but it’s not a new golden age quite yet.

Yeah morgan not beefing on AJ as can't fault him - he beats everyone his management team put in front of him, he's just not exciting to watch imo.

Heavyweight division is about a million miles away from the golden age, earliest I remember was the 80's with Heavyweights like Tyson, Foreman, Holyfield, Bowe, Spinks, Holmes etc. going to war in the ring, all of which would have far too much about them for AJ

Yeah I agree. I grew up in the 80s watching a very good heavyweight division.

This isn’t that era though and you can’t blame Joshua for that.
He wouldn’t have lasted 3 rounds with some of the so called journeymen of that era, but he’s fighting all comers.
It’s only the last two fights that have been a bit shit though.
You can forgive him for not blasting out Takam and Parker as both have granite chins.

I think he would open up against Wilder and it might be a slug fest.
If he beat Wilder and it’s not a given as Wilder has a huge punch if nothing else, what then?

It’s Fury and maybe Whyte again as there’s not a lot beyond that right now.
You have Joe Joyce coming up but I can’t think of any more who could really contend.

I’m only repeating stuff written elsewhere but it could be the start of another Klitschko type era if Joshua can pull of wins against Wilder and a fit again Fury.

And I think he’ll fight Parker again within 2 years as he’ll be a mandatory again soon.

AJ is too big. Needs to work on getting some speed back otherwise he'll be the next Klitschko. Dominating for years and boring us all during the process.
