Parker may be Joyce’s hardest combat thus far. Joyce has looked unstoppable on account that he became expert in 2017.
Parker, a former world champion and former #four of the WBO with an undefeated record in 23 wins earlier than turning seasoned and adopting a more cautious style, is now looking to win that name shot with the winner of this combat. The winner will venture for the WBO name held by using Oleksandr Usyk who defeated Tony Bellew in only twelve rounds for the vacant identify on December seventeenth.
Former IBF and cutting-edge WBC women’s featherweight champion Amanda Serrano may be lower back within the ring for the first time considering the fact that ultimate 12 months’s combat with Katie Taylor. Serrano battles France’s Sarah Mahfoud for a danger to unify her titles.

JOYCE VS. PARKER PREDICTION
Even though Robbie is holding a significant reach advantage over Jake, Jake needs to use better footwork to bother Robbie. If he can’t, then it will be a long night for him eating persistent jabs.
Even though Joyce is an easy target, it doesn’t prevent him from reaching this level that he is at. Although there may be some changes, nothing glaringly obvious will change about his approach.
Parker will have to get inside and engage. Joyce is regarded as an underdog, but he throws counter shots with deceptive speed, so the idea of Parker staying close to land more shots on Joyce might get abandoned once he gets a taste of the power coming from the Englishman.
This contest’s potential final highlight is the late stoppage; while Joyce has reached a state of complete disarray and won’t win the fight, Parker will keep him at bay. I anticipate that he will stumble over himself and secure the win in the late rounds. With six defenses of his UFC title belt already under his belt, he is already looking to add one more in the coming months.
