Prediction,

Parker tries to take centre ring to start the fight, Whyte tries to tee off with the first punch of the fight, aims to land a stand out punch, and deter Parker. Parker is doing most of the work for 150 seconds of round 1, there isn't much in it, but Parker, faster, more mobile. Whyte lands with a massive right hand flush on the chin with about 20 seconds left in the round, Parker takes it well, and Whyte doesn't follow it up, but Whyte lands the best punch of the first round.

Whyte has success with his jab to start round 2, he manages to get started before Parker seems to be able to, as he lands a left hook to the body, and follows it up with a flurry to the head and back to the body, Parker hits Whyte back with a right hand, but Whyte, looking stronger, getting the better of these early exchanges it seems. Parker seems to be struggling to set up his offence, and Whyte seems to be just being patient, looking for openings, and seeming to have more authority.

Parker starts round 3 with a flurry of his own, hitting Whyte with a 4 punch head, body combination, landing 2 clean shots. Whyte struggles to hit Parker as he is made to miss with a few big punches which are an attempted response to Parker's success. Whyte is the aggressor throughout the round, but Parker, able to defend well. The fight livens up in the last 30 seconds, as Parker thumps in a good right to the body, and Whyte responds with a left hook, but Parker gets the better of the exchange by having the last word with a big right hand that Whyte takes well.

Whyte exerts pressure and aggresion to start round 4 as he gets Parker on the ropes, and attacks in volume. Parker seems happy to stay on the ropes, but he struggles to find the counter when Whyte throws shots. Whyte dominates the round, outworks and overpowers Parker. Parker seems controlled, but he also seems to be coming second best at this still early stage. The two fighters open up in the last 20-30 seconds of the round, both land big punches, and both chins hold up.

Better from Parker, good jab to start the round, and a great right uppercut as Whyte tries to jump forward and make him pay for landing the jab. Good defence from Parker in this round, initiating exchanges as well, making Whyte miss, and not letting him rest. Parker seems to be punishing Whyte here, attacking him, head to body, Whyte keeps egging Parker on, he is taking these shots, but he looks frustrated, as he struggles with the slickness and work rate of his opponent, he tries to mount an attack on Parker at the end of the round, but only walks onto big punches from Parker.

Whyte beats Parker to the jab to start this round, but Parker walks through it and throws a cluster of punches, makes Whyte work as Whyte lets a few massive punches go, trying to fend Parker off, but Parker soaks up everything he takes, and when he manages to get Whyte against the ropes, he lets fly with an 8 punch flurry, now it is turning into a classic, both guys throwing bombs, both chins still holding up. They have both put a lot into this, Whyte seems to be struggling for pace now at the end of the round, more so than Parker, and it is the Kiwi warrior who is able to land a late combination to finish this round.

Great stuff from Parker, blocking and countering, good start to round 7. Whyte is aggressive, but he is being beaten to the punch. Good movement from Parker, Whyte is being made to miss badly, he is frustrated in this round. Better from Whyte, good uppercut, he needs more of that to nick this round. Good lead hook from Parker, Whyte is on the offensive, looking to respond. Brilliant from Parker, landing a clean counter 1, 2, man, Whyte has a chin, that right hand landed flush.

Good right hand from Parker, Whyte felt that one, he needs his survival skills, but he has a smile on his face. Whyte is showing a lot of grit here, but he is taking a beating in this round, Parker is teeing off, but what a great left hook from Whyte, Parker took that well, but he is not looking like he is going for the finish now. What a war, both guys mixing it up to head and body, throwing the kitchen sink at each other, but Parker is getting the best of this, and that is a great right uppercut to the head, not hurting Whyte, but not being punished as Whyte misses badly with a hook.

It isn't surprising they've dropped the pace, after a round at that pace. Parker is doing a good job of outboxing Whyte, he is landing the jab, blocking well, moving well, and seems well prepared for what Whyte throws at him. Great right hand from Parker, Whyte shakes his head, smiles at Parker, but Parker, not taking the bait, and giving Whyte no openings. Better from Whyte, good right hand, but if he can't hurt Parker with his best shot, then that won't do it, his punches have lightened noticeably. Good attacking and then evading from Parker to finish a good round for him.

Good jab from Whyte, clean shot, but there isn't a lot of sharpness behind that shot anymore. Good work from both fighters, both landing clean, quality punches centre ring, but Parker is landing with the harder punches, and Whyte looks more tired. He is doing good work with the jab here, Whyte, but Parker, slipping as well, and just being patient, although Whyte gets through with a good mid round uppercut. Great flurry from Parker to finish the round, that right hand especially.

Whyte is really on the offensive here, Parker, seeming happy to be on the back foot, let Whyte come to him. Good left hook from Whyte, but what a counter from Parker, brilliant timing, just as he looked like he was countered, he was really making Whyte lunge into a right hand, and down goes Dillian Whyte. Whyte is up, but he is hurt, he looks close to done, there is still a good 90 seconds left in the round, Parker is dangerous. This is brilliant from Parker, attacking with accuracy, and landing so many hurtful punches, Whyte is taking a tremendous beating, but what heart and courage he is showing here, he isn't quitting, that's for sure. Whyte has done very well to get through that round without going down more than once, Parker was really able to inflict a sustained beating, but he looks like he has almost emptied his tank now.

Both guys are spent, this is a test of will, Whyte is probably behind, he could do with this last round, and that's a good start for him, good left hook. Good jabs from Parker, he seems to be using 'stick and move' tactics, he looks like he has more in the tank, but he put a lot into that 11th round. 90 seconds to go, and this is war, both guys throwing heavy leather, trying to knock each other out, Whyte looks like he is gambling, Parker looks more methodical. Whyte is throwing every punch he can drag out of himself here, still trying his best, but it is Parker who looks less tired here, he is managing to drag out more punches, and there is slightly more power on his shots, he is just getting the better of this. 10 seconds left and they are swinging for the fences, Parker is still getting the better of this, but that's a decent right hand from Whyte which lands on the bell.

Parker jumps onto the ropes, then tries to embrace Whyte, Whyte ignores him. Whyte raises his arm as if to think he might have just about edged it, but he does not look confident. Team Parker look nervous about this being in the hands of the judges, but they know they've won this.

114-113, 116-111, 117-110.

Joseph Parker defeats Dillian Whyte by unanimous decision.

SalTnutZ1's picture

Line on both right now, per Bovada, is -125 Parker and -105 Whyte, so essentially even money, with Whyte the slight dog.

Champion97's picture

What do you think of my prediction analysis?

SalTnutZ1's picture

It's good, and definitely how I could see the fight going. I think Parker is too slick, and can take Whyte's power. Can Whyte adjust and beat the boxer, who also has punching skills and can move? His past says no if you count AJ in that group.

My thinking is similar to you in terms of the fight, if PARKER can weather the power of WHYTE and BOX
better than he did against A JOSHUA i think PARKER is more likely of the 2 to win by dec.

Thanks man I'll check that out, fan of Lewis, beat Bruno, Tyson, Klitschko.

Champion97's picture

Great fight! Both fighters were down and hurt, both seemed like they might be stopped.

Dillian Whyte proved me wrong, I take my hat off to him, he definitely deserves a world title shot next, I see no challenger who I think is more deserving than Whyte of the shot. This is a great victory for Dillian Whyte, best win of his career so far, and I think he earned the Wilder shot.

MattDixon's picture

Do you think a rematch would be any different? I think whyte would get a wider decision this time round.

Champion97's picture

I think Whyte beats him wider now as well, but Parker is 27, his best is ahead of him, he did great in this fight, the commentary was disgusting, and he was unlucky in round 2 with the headbutt knockdown, he was winning the round, and if he'd won it, and no error, the fight would have been a draw.

MattDixon's picture

I agree the commentary was harsh, but tbf parker barley did anything from round 5 6 and 8

Champion97's picture

So what? He didn't desereve that commentary, they acted like he was on a survival mission, that obviously wasn't the case in any round. It's because of Whyte disallowing him to get into a rhythm, he won round 5 on my card. Sky's team are disgraceful when it comes to Parker, he couldn't be more reasonable a fighter, never talks shit, and has been in good fights against Takam, Ruiz, Whyte, Sky give him no credit. The Whyte fight was obviously closer than Sky said, and Nelson saying Parker is an on top fighter, after the way he finished against Whyte, is a joke, couldn't be more wrong. I was looking forward to Parker vs Chisora, shame about the spider bite, I'm confident Parker would have stopped him and will beat him if the fight is rescheduled.

MattDixon's picture

I agree with the fact they were over critical. I was saying that chisora would beat parker before, but after that price fight I see too many holes that parker can easily exploit. Dont think parker will ko chisora tbh tho

The most likely logical explanation you thought Chiaora would beat Parker is likely because he's British. Depends on whether Chisora is shot or not, difference between being slightly less resilient than in your prime, and just declining gradually with age, and that fight when all the miles catch up to you, and you have no resistance left, no reflexes, can't time shots, that will happen to Chisora soon, if it's his next fight, Parker stops him, if he still has a year or so left before that happens, I agree he is still too durable for Parker stop him. I don't see how the Price fight exploited holes, Chisora's resistance is slightly less than what it was, but his head movement was good, still, Price's miles probably caught up to him, was shot, it was sad to see.

aye mate you know it, gotta support the home crowd. If chisora still has his chin then he will be great. If it's gone then hes fucked cos he had a style where hes gonna take punishment

Champion97's picture

Not at all, Chisora doesn't deserve to have fans, he deserves acknowledgement of a good fighter, and to be paid enough, but that's it, and excessive bias is what causes fans to resent fighters. Even if he isn't shot, Parker still beats him wide in my opinion.

MattDixon's picture

Come on mate, you gotta support your home crowd. Idk where ya from but every fan has some hometown bias.

Champion97's picture

This isn't footy, Chisora is a big mouth bully as far as I'm concerned. There is excessive bias in the UK, and it is bad for fighters, there would be no Joshua haters if it wasn't for all the biased Brits who insisted Wilder was ducking, couldn't take a shot and had no chance against Joshua.

MattDixon's picture

Well I'm one of them that fully believes wilder ducked Joshua. He turned down a $100 million dazn contract to have his fight with brezeale and 2 joshua fights streamed with them. Hes either got a bad manager (finkel) or hes secretly scared

You saw what Andy did to AJ. If you think the same thing wouldn't have happened with Wilder facing him, I don't know what to tell you. Eddie was always shifting goal posts on that deal, and there was no guarantee of the AJ fight in it if you dig. I get being loyal to your home fighter, but that can be to a fault, and certainly doesn't help the perception of the sport when it comes to hometown bias and judging.

Champion97's picture

Yeah I thought you were, Wilder, in all liklihood, did not duck Joshua, and people need to understand that this puts petrol on the fire, and is what angers the Wilder fans, will make some of them take it out on Joshua, just like the people who said everybody was ducking GGG for years, without them, there would be no 'Lil G', 'Triple L'. Let's stop accusing fighters of ducking when there is a much more likely explanation, Wilder has and had no reason not to want to fight Joshua, we knew he could hurt him before he lost to Ruiz, he is more durable, and I got a lot of shit from biased Brits for saying that. Wilder turned down offers, most likely out of loyalty, and don't forget, Hearn made it clear Wilder was never getting 40%, you can't blame Wilder for not taking the fight.

For the record, the other side is just as bad, Joshua is no ducker in all liklihood, but the people who say he ducked Wilder and are against him, would not be if it wasn't for all the biased, naive Joshua fans who acted like it was a mismatch, 'Wilder has no resume, no skill, ducker, can't take a punch', Johnny Nelson didn't help with the 'scared off by AJ' nonsense.

I've watched this fight five times now and it is a real jewel of a fight! I'm not in anyway protesting the decision, I can see how Whyte deserved it. I do, however, think the fight was poorly officiated by the referee! The "knockdown" in round 2 wasn't legit, but caused, as many have noted, by a headbutt. Whyte's rough house-tactics was a very smart strategy but I do think he should have had a point deducted in the 10th round, since it was illegal tactics that did influence the direction of the fight in Whyte's favour. I don't blame Whyte for this, he didn't get penalized so he kept it up, perfectly understandable. But the ref didn't really try to prevent it, which shows he wasn't in command of the fight. Whyte could do pretty much what he wanted without any consequences.

I also feel that Parker's performance in this fight is VERY underrated! Both in regards to his boxing and strategically.

I had Parker winning the first four rounds, if you discount the "knockdown", which I think one should. Parker used his quick jab and combinations, stepping out of range when Whyte threw and countered quickly with a fast stop jab, that stopped Whyte in his tracks. Parker also threw fast, effective combinations to Whyte's body. Whyte looked very slow and Parker made him miss and slipped and blocked most of his punches.

In the 4th round Whyte began his rough house-tactics, to deprive Parker of his evident speed advantage, which was a smart move. In the 5th round Parker looked very tired and Whyte started landing consistently with his jab. Whyte got off first and Parker didn't manage to counter the way he did in the first four rounds. Same thing in the 6th and Whyte was coming forward landing the jab and body shots, Parker worked in spurts, landing some good combinations and jabs, but Whyte was doing the consistent landing.

In the 7th Parker mad a bit of a comeback and started pressing forward, standing infront of Whyte and landing good combinations. But Parker did look tired, still boxing pretty well. In the 8th Whyte stepped forward and used the jab and worked the body, Parker answered with punches of his own but Whyte was doing most of the work. In the 9th the hellacious left hook from Whyte sent Parker to the canvas in spectacular fashion, but Parker got up fought back well, but a big round for Whyte.

In the 10th round, even though tired, Parker started to launch his offense a bit more and landed well, standing and trading with Whyte. Whyte, however, landed a bit more and took that round. The 11th was also pretty even, with Parker more offensive and Whyte answering back, but Parker got the better of it, landing the better punches.

Parker kept coming on in the 12th and started to get through, hurting Whyte, who looked pretty much spent in the final round, even though he fought back bravely. Parker hurt Whyte against the ropes and it looked like Whyte was going, but he swung away desperately and landed some punches that made Parker back off a bit. After a good combination from Parker that made Whyte take a step back, Parker launched a heavy right hand that shook Whyte and sent him into the ropes. Parker was on him immediately and he went down. He looked spent and on unsteady legs and when Parker moved in to finish him, he threw himself at him and held on for his life the final 15 seconds of the fight.

There's been some critique of Parker's performance and on Kevin Barry's performance in the corner, which I don't get at all. I think Parker gave a very good performance! Early on he used his jab, countering and making Whyte miss and attacked with combinations to head and body. During the second half of the fight he came forward more and traded with Whyte. The strategy was obviously to box the first half and stack up a lead and then go on the offense to tire Whyte and ultimately take him out. A sound strategy in my opinion! However, Whyte's rough housing got to Parker and wore him down, with this his speed dropped a bit and the very good defensive manoeuvres he displayed early, leaning out of reach, turning with the punch, blocking, dancing away, started leaking and Whyte got through with his jab.

I don't think there was panic in Parker's corner because he did well. Of course, the knock down must've made them nervous, but Parker recuperated well. My criticism towards Parker's corner would be that they didn't protest, firstly against the "knockdown" and secondly they should have protested to the referee after the 4th round immediately after Whyte started his dirty tactics. That would've put pressure on the ref to act and raised his awareness of Whyte's fouling, perhaps resulting in deductions.

I had the fight 114:112 for Parker, but round 7 could have gone to Whyte, but I gave it to Parker. I didn't score the 2:nd round 10-8 for Whyte, but 10-9 for Parker.

I think the judges' did a good job with the scoring and, of course, they have to follow the referee's call. But if the 2:nd round would've been scored 10-9 for Parker, discarding the "knockdown", it would've been a split draw: Judge 1: 114:112 Parker; Judge 2: 113:113 even; Judge 3: 114:112 Whyte. If I would've counted the 2:nd round knockdown I would've had the same score as the first judge.

I do think Whyte deserved the decision and I've got no complaints, but I just wanted to discuss the fact that the fight was won with a small and disputable margin. Many have said post fight that Parker fought poorly but I disagree!! I think he boxed well and fought his heart out and showed, to me at least, that he is a world class fighter!

MattDixon's picture

Sorry mate but parker didnt win that fight. Even without the knockdown in the 2nd whyte still won that round and the 7th I had a draw but more of a leaner towards whyte. I had it 114-113 but I was being generous to parker

Champion97's picture

I don't think Parker won, and I think a one point loss is the best case scenario, but we might both be wrong on that, it was easy to be fooled by the commentary. Whyte was very wise to go down in the last round, he was confident he could afford the 10-8, he knew he was on the cusp of being stopped, I think he was unlikely to survive the onslaught, his tank was empty.

GoldenAgeComics's picture

Parker will take his head off in a rematch

GoldenAgeComics's picture

In other news Whyte cheated badly and it should have been at least a draw.

Parker without the fouling and headbutts would have won quite easily.

MattDixon's picture

Styles make fights and that is just one of the many pieces of evidence that wilder ducked AJ. I'm not saying AJ would beat him (although that's what I do believe but not my point) I'm saying he didnt want the fight. Realise how AJ said after he beat ruiz he wanted to call out wilder in his home country. Then he goes and announces his next fight will be the ortiz rematch on the same week AJ Is fighting ruiz after that interview, but then the fight doesnt get a date or venue or even an official announcement outside of Wilders social media until september. And that's only another one piece of evidence. What about when he didnt sign a contract to fight Joshua on november 10th in Las Vegas 2018. Theres too much against wilder that his stupid fans dont listen to. I'm bias, but I will speak facts and the truth, wilder ducked Joshua just how fury ducked the wilder rematch and how whyte ducked pulev etc etc

SalTnutZ1's picture

Lmao, okay buddy. Robotic, hittable AJ is somehow built to fight Wilder, who would line him up and put him out with the first shot that lands? The same AJ that has been hurt by Takam, Whyte, Povetkin, Wlad, Parker, and Ruiz? Legit every big fight he's been hurt in. Fury is the only top HW right now that has the right style to fight Wilder, as he can actually move and avoid most of the big shots, and has the heart to get up when he does get caught. Wilder only announced a fight with Ortiz after Fury decided against the immediate rematch. If he ducked people, why did he want to jump right back in with the guy people believe beat him, and then take a rematch against a guy that really challenged him in the first fight, a guy who is high risk-low reward, and arguably the most versatile striker in the division? That just doesn't make much sense. AJ and his team have ducked a lot of smoke, and constantly moved the posts on any deal with Wilder, which I can point to many pieces of "evidence" that point to my conclusion as well. You believe what you want, but those are far from facts and truth. AJ isn't going to get by Ruiz, so this convo is all for not.

MattDixon's picture

Ah yeah after the immediate rematch wasnt going to happen 3 MONTHS LATER. And Joshua wasnt really hurt by takam, never got hurt by parker, your saying he doesnt have heart when he got up 4 times against Ruiz. Fury got up late btw 13 second count. AJ is a warrior. Wilder got hurt by Molina, Brezeale, szpilka, fury, ortiz (badly). And you cant argue with the fact Joshua has a ten times better resume than wilder with half as many fights.

SalTnutZ1's picture

Takam did hurt him. Every time Parker hurt him, to both the head and body, the referee jumped in to save him. Come on now. Didn't say AJ wasn't a warrior, just very chinny and robotic, two things that absolutely are a deficit when fighting Wilder. That is far from a good stylistic matchup for him. Don't know how you could make that claim with a straight face. Most of Wilder's early fights were under GB and they were developing a guy, who although an Olympic medalist, had very few amateur fights and needed the experience. Not every fighter is built up in the same way or at the same pace. AJ had a hype machine behind him, so of course his promotion was better, that isn't in dispute. But, he beat an old Wlad who had already lost his belts in an embarrassing fashion, got a gift belt from Martin, and won a close decision against Parker in a very poor officiated fight where he was protected. Wilder wasn't dropped against Ortiz, in spite of the onslaught, and put all of those guys away. Resume doesn't mean you're a better fighter btw. Wilder tried to fight Ortiz earlier than he did, and was going to fight Povetkin in Russia in 2015, so not as if the guy hasn't tried to get the top fights, guys just kept juicing knowing they had to fight him and he was the one hated on for it. AJ had a better resume than Ruiz as well, too bad that resume couldn't fight for him.

MattDixon's picture

The wlad that AJ fought was the best wlad we've seen since his prime. Povetkin is far better than ortiz and younger. Parker decision was 118 110 which isn't close and are we gonna talk about about close fights when wilder dropped a few rounds to stiverne in the first fight and got schooled by ortiz and molina till he finished them. Wilders a warrior and an amazing fighter, but he did duck aj like it or not. I like both guys but facts are facts and on paper yes it is a bad style matchup, but we never know until they slug it out.

Champion97's picture

Come on man, just think about it logically, Wlad was coming off 17 months out, oldest he's been, in the lion's den, these are facts, of course he looked better against AJ than Fury!, Fury made him look bad, Joshua couldn't!

There are no facts which prove Wilder ducked Joshua, there are logical explanations as to why he turned down offers in the past. Wilder was not being schooled by either, he was being well beaten after 4 rounds in my opinion, and in rounds 5-9, it was a very close fight before he got the stoppage, he lost 2 rounds if that against Molina, to say he was being schooled by Ortiz is an exaggeration, but to say he was being schooled by Molina is just ridiculous. Wilder knocked out Breazeale 6 rounds earlier than Joshua, and that is just as important as Joshua beating Molina earlier. Joshua vs Parker was likely to have been closer than that just like Wilder probably shouldn't have been ahead against Ortiz, the referee was against Parker, it was a great performance from Joshua, he boxed very well, but Wilder is different to Parker, he is more dangerous, has more reach, is more explosive, and he is more unorthodox.

I appreciate that you aren't biased towards AJ despite being from the UK.

MattDixon's picture

I get what your saying mate, but remember Joshua koed Molina 7 rounds earlier than wilder when Molina was on the roids. I respect your opinion and I do like wilder believe it or not. I just think he ducked AJ and I'm just going off facts here. Tbh I do think wilder would have better odds in an AJ fight maybe 7 to 3, but it doesnt mean he didnt avoid the fight for one reason or another

Champion97's picture

He also beat an older Molina with more miles, we can make these arguments all day, and while they are not meaningless, they don't prove much, which fighter beats which common opponent better isn't something to put stock into, Mayweather vs Pacquiao, Ali vs Foreman, is proof of that. None of the facts you have stated make me think Wilder ducked Joshua, I can't prove he didn't, but there is more likely explanation for everything you can say against Wilder. It makes no logical sense for Wilder to duck Joshua, but I think he's turned down offers out of loyalty to his handlers, possibly because the offers have come at the wrong time, and he's believed he's been lowballed by Hearn in the past. In my opinion, the argument that Joshua ducked Wilder is no more or less valid than your argument, I believe neither is a ducker, respect your opinion if you logically think Wilder ducked Joshua.

Champion97's picture

You are not speaking the truth because you are biased, against Wilder and too pro Joshua as most British fans are. If his fans are stupid, so are you, because you are the same as them, just on the other side, not saying you personally are stupid, but neither are Wilder's fans. There is nothing more to suggest Wilder is ducking than Joshua. Also, Joshua's style is probably not bad for Wilder, vise verse if anything.

Guy Incognito's picture

Not everyone who disagrees with you is a biased liar. That is something that you should have learned by now.

Champion97's picture

Clear off you moron, I'm talking to someone worth talking to, and notice, I didn't insult them, all I did was make a valid argument. You are the one who needs to learn about boxing and how to handle yourself when discussing with others. Again, clear off.

Guy Incognito's picture

Calm down, you hothead. All I did was make a valid argument. I never claimed that you insulted anybody. You are the one who needs to learn about handling yourself when discussing with others. Again, calm down.

Champion97's picture

Again, clear off. You don't know the meaning of a valid argument. How do you explain my rational discussions with everyone apart from you? Here's the answer, you are always looking to start shit, know nothing about boxing, and are a complete moron, stop talking to me.

Guy Incognito's picture

Here we go again. You know that when Champion97 starts swearing and insulting others that his tantrum is either nigh or has already begun. And to say that I know nothing about boxing is incorrect. And to consistently beg that I stop talking to you is a sign that you are growing frustrated by your failures to respond to my comments well, and fearful of losing yet another debate.

Champion97's picture

Clear off then if you don't like my language, don't talk to me, simple. You're the one having a tantrum, you started this, don't go looking for trouble. You know very little, ans have no desure to learn. Even someone as stupid as you must know that isn't true, get a life, it's basic common sense, when an idiot is saying stupid things and making no sense, why talk to him? Anyone can see we should not talk, and you trying to claim a victory by using my suggestion we never talk is pathetic.

'You're the one having a tantrum,'

tantrum |ˈtantrəm|
noun
an uncontrolled outburst of anger and frustration, typically in a young child: he has temper tantrums if he can't get his own way.

An example of an uncontrolled outburst of anger and frustration is throwing swear words, insults and vulgar language around.

'when an idiot is saying stupid things and making no sense, why talk to him?'

Good point. Maybe I should stop talking to you.

'and you trying to claim a victory by using my suggestion we never talk is pathetic.'

There is a difference between being pathetic and correct.

Keep telling yourself that, me putting an end to these back and fourth, repetitive discussions that have nothing to with boxing is a win for you.

Again, if me swearing as everybody else does makes you feel better, keep reminding yourself of it.

Nothing suggests intelligence like a good old no u.

The offer about teaching you about boxing is always there, but it doesn't have to be me, there are many people on here who know boxing.

'me putting an end to these back and fourth, repetitive discussions that have nothing to with boxing is a win for you.'

Indeed. It means that I will finally be free of your . . . peculiarity. But it is both a win and loss for you. You will be free of losing debates, but I was trying to help you, and always have been.

'Nothing suggests intelligence like a good old no u.'

I would not say it suggests sophisticated intelligence, it does suggest humorous intelligence and ability to make a joke.

'The offer about teaching you about boxing is always there'

Thank you. And I return that offer to you.

'there are many people on here who know boxing.'

Thank you for stating the obvious. Why do you think I would need to know that, or be reminded of that?

Champion97's picture

If ever you want to learn about boxing, let me know.

Guy Incognito's picture

Will do. Thank you. And I return the same offer to you, friend. Although your boxing knowledge is likely beyond my own due to your activity on this website.

Champion97's picture

Hey, if you accept that, I respect that, and for the sake of honesty, you would likely beat me in a spelling test, but this website is about boxing, and in all honesty, without insulting you, you are biased and have limited knowledge, so you can't put your argument on the same level as someone who isn't biased and knows more about boxing than you, just accept that, I don't think I'm better than you, and I don't know everything there is to know about boxing, but I only want to talk to anyone on a boxing website, funnily enough, about boxing, I can't see how that's unreasonable.

Guy Incognito's picture

Thanks. I think.

MattDixon's picture

Look theres no need to start flinging shapes here I'm just saying my opinion. Lets just keep it calm here. No one is stupid in this we just have different points of view. I am a bit bias as I'm quiet a patriotic British fan but I do have the ability to see other view even if it isn't my own. I'm not "siding" with anyone else I dont pay attention to most other fans, only really on this site and a few boxing youtube channels. I wont let those opinions affect my own unless they are factual.

Champion97's picture

I wasn't calling you a moron, respect your opinion, Guy Incognito is undecided on whether or not the earth is flat, thinks Hughie got robbed against Pulev, he is always looking for trouble, I was calling him a moron, not you. I wasn't calling you stupid, Wilder's fans, like SalTnutZ1, aren't stupid, that is what I was saying. I'm always happy to talk boxing rationally.
