After only 48 hours of negotiations, the promoters sealed the deal, bringing in two top class heavyweight fighters with an open eye on a world title shot. Online betting sites in the UK have set forth the best odds for this fight as one of the top in 2018. In our Dillian Whyte v Joseph Parker preview we look at the predictions. Many bookmakers perceive it as 50-50 and both fighters agree, but we slightly give the upper hand to the New Zealander. Hence, let us put some facts to the argument.
Whyte and Parker Aim to Win a Rematch with Joshua
What both fighters share in common when they walk down memory lane is their one defeat on their records against World champion Anthony Joshua. Whyte lost to his British rival in a seventh-round stoppage in December 2015 with a dramatic fall down, while WBO reign was ended by a points loss to Joshua in a unification clash in March.
Although the both boxers did not get it right against Anthony Joshua, Parker was more equipped with stamina and tactical defense. So, if the New Zealander comes into the ring with similar classy style, and if he puts some pressure he may close out Dillian Whyte. But, of course anything could happen in such very big fights.
Dillian Whyte v Joseph Parker Preview
Despite Whyte being ranked as second while Parker sitting on fifth spot of the world top heavyweight fighters list – according to online sportsbook news in the UK, the age has its large impact in such big fights. Since Whyte is 30 and Parker is 26 we could expect to see the New Zealander show more dynamic and commanding performance in the ring over his opponent.
However, that does not mean Dillian Whyte has no trump cards to play. The Villain will be on home soil at The O2, providing him with confidence as he enters his playground. He also had won all his seven fights after the loss to Joshua, with two winnings by KOs, so he is on the rise unlike his opponent who is still recovering from his first defeat. Do you think Dillian Whyte’s brimming with confidence could bring him a victory?
Who Do You Think Wins?
As bookmakers see it 50-50, the betting odds are equally split. At Bwin Sportsbook the odds for both fighters stand at (1.91), and (23.00) for the fight to end with a draw. No doubt, that a draw will be very disappointing, and a KO is the best result that such fight could end with, especially if we look forward for a rematch with Anthony Joshua. The two fighters are very close to a win, and it is hard to make a confident prediction, but this is what makes betting on Dillian Whyte v Joseph Parker more exciting, right?
