Expert prediction for Joe Joyce vs. Joseph Parker

This is a battle between motivated heavyweights.

During his six-fight win streak, Parker has won three fights via knockout (his last one in 2020). Before the knockout win of Alexander Flores in 2018, Parker last won via knockout in 2016. Meanwhile, Joyce is a man on a mission. Dating back to his debut, Joyce has won 13 of his 14 fights via some form of knockout.

Expect fireworks in this one.

Looking further into the stats, Parker has a 0+ +/- rating. He connects on 27.8% of his shots while his opponent lands the same, balancing everything out. Parker averages the fewest power punches thrown per round with 21.1. He does have a total connect percentage of 43.4%, tied for 15th among active fighters.

Parker has a jab percentage of 52.7% (averaging 23.5 of 44.6). In his last fight and second bout against Derek Chisora, Parker connected on the jab 24 times, which added to his 144 total punches. However, Joyce can be a jab machine. Against Daniel Dubois, he landed 125 shots, with 98 jabs. Against Iago Kiladze, Joyce landed 50 jabs out of 109 punches.

Opponents land 33% of their power punches against Parker. Joyce can switch it up between jabs and power shots to halt an opponent in their tracks. That makes him dangerous.

Parker has seemingly drank from the fountain of youth at 37, but can he outlast the power of Joyce? He must find a way to not step off the gas pedal in the later rounds. For Joyce, he has to go shot for shot with Parker but also find some urgency in his blows. That has been a concern for him in the past.

Parker can win if he uses his swift feet to slide past Joyce. It could be a calculated battle, and Parker knows a thing or two about strategy. Tiring out Joyce early and avoiding his jabs will be the key. Parker’s path back to the promised land is within reach, he can almost taste it.
