Kevin Barry on Parker-Fa showdown

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (27-2, 21 KOs) and WBO#6 Junior Fa (19-0, 10 KOs) clashed four times in the amateur ranks winning two each. Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry talks about their rubber match on December 11 at the Spark Arena, Auckland, New Zealand.

“Joe is a proven performer, he’s a big-time fighter and everyone has Joe in their top half dozen,” Barry told Stuff. “Look at the results against Takam, Dimitrenko, Ruiz, Hughie Fury, Joshua, Whyte … there are no names like that for Junior. But the thing that Junior has is history. He knows Joe, he’s watched Joe, he’s beaten Joe, I don’t think he will fear Joe. The stars have lined up for something special.”

  • If Parker stuffs this one up it’s a long road back to where he sits now i just hope he has the hunger to become world champion still but I think he’s fallen back some I the past I had high hopes for him ,but it’s up to him now

  • A Parker fan, but he lost something along the way. At times in his recent fights he has even looked bored , uninterested during the fight. Hope the real Parker shows up.

  • If Parker is hungry he wins by decision, If he’s anything less then Fa wins inside of 7.

  • Parker will not be aggressive, again!! I dont get this guy. He has skills & speed, but no motivation to use them to his full advantage. He could be champion right now, if only he had given his ALL….
