October the 1st sees the IBF #1 Contender Joseph Parker taking on Alexander Dimitrenko. This one really is a bit interesting as although a bit limited, Dimitrenko's relatively handy and looked to be heading for a title bout before dropping a points decision to Eddie Chambers and subsequently being KO'd by Kubrat Pulev. He's not top drawer by any means but it should give us an idea of where Parker is. Parker was not the be all and end all in his last fight against Carlos Takam so will be looking for a decent showing here.

My only concern is that Dimitrenko has not fought since January this year (rust?) and is no spring chicken at 34. In theory, Parker should take this, and relatively easily. However I have a sneaking suspicion that Dimitrenko might pull a hail mary out of the bag late in the fight whilst under pressure.

Whoever wins is likely to be leveled by the first decent fighter they face. Luckily for both of them, the HW division is awash with sh!te so it will probably be a while before either of them is punched off the radar

Parker's defence is atrocious and he is supposed to be the biggest non unification test out there...

Tony Tubbs would be in the Top 10 ATG heavy list if he had been born 20 years later...

Talking about a rematch with Whyte too unfortunately...Whyte seems to have let winning one round out of 8 in a thrashing off a still novice champion go to his head......He's the bollox now.

Apparently Whyte v Josh 2 is an anticipated rematch..

I'll be washing my hair that night.. Emo

So will I, I'm assuming the fight will be over by the time I've finished.

Disappointing that the rematch is being touted but again, I'm wholly unsurprised. Would have expected Whyte to at least be laying waste to the chaff he's been put in with since his return but that's not been the case so I struggle to see how he can even use the excuse that his demolition jobs prove his shoulder injury prevented him from taking Joshua apart last time out.

In a recent an interview with IFLTV Hearn has stated he thinks Parker is most likely up next for Joshua because Pulev and Stiverne are not serious about fighting him. He says Parker is game. But he also stated he thinks Parker Josh could do Wembley ala Froch Groves 2 but he can't do that this year so I don't see why he would do it at all yet in that case. I've started thinking hearn talks a lot of rubbish in order to misdirect!

On another note, this business with Whyte is a joke. The guy's nowhere near top class boxing. Hearn just sees easy pound notes in a rematch absolutely no question about it. Joke. I'd like to think he would have to actually beat somebody of note to in order to earna shot at AJ again but sadly i think not.

So if it's AJ/Wilder in Summer, Eddie must be convinced Haye is going to get beaten as the rumour mill is suggesting Haye/Wilder early next year

I think in an ideal world it would be AJ vs Fury summer 2017. In my ideal world Aj fights, Parker now, then lets just get rid of Haye in March / April followed by Fury or Wilder around August time. Lets stop fighting prunes and make it happen.

Saying that, if Haye does somehow get the WBC belt off Wilder that AJ Haye fight would then be absolutely massive here. It would crush Froch Groves on tickets and PPV.

Should have been DQ'd from what I saw, has him in a headlock when he hits him with his knees on the canvas.

Nah sniper got him. Just another fighter against Parker that tries to win fights on their knees. Hopefully the next fighter will have more heart for it.

Sadly truss, you're right.

Fury isn't fighting again, he's lost the desire.

If AJ's team are being logical, they'll fight Parker, Pulev and then there winner Haye v Wlider.

That was not a tap, it was a full bloodied body shot when he was already down.

Parker shouldn't have hit Dimitrenko when the latter was down, but from what I saw, the Russian didn't seem to fancy staying in the fight for too much longer either.

Ref was even waving his hands to indicate no KD then soft lad starts rolling around screaming "LOOK AT ME, I'M HURT. CAN YOU ALL SEE? MAYBE I SHOULD ROLL AROUND A BIT MORE JUST SO THERE'S NO CONFUSION ABOUT HOW TERRIBLY HURT I AM"

Dimitrenko was fairly woeful while Parker looked decent, but didn't really learn much. Parker hit Dimitrenko with a moderate body punch, but the punch landed when Dimentrenko was on one knee was a glancing blow. It didn't really look like anything much. Dimentrenko was down in the first round, down twice in the second round, and then writhing on the canvass in the third round. Overall Parker looked decent but we really didn't learn much, apart from the the fact Dimentrenko didn't seem to have much punch resistant.

It seems pretty clear to me that Dimitrenko fought Parker for a payday and definitely took the easy way out. He looked as manoeuverable as an oil tanker and had all the chin of David Price. I think every heavyweight with a ranking would've dispatched him based on that showing. Disgraceful.

Parker may well be in line for Joshua, but I can see him going for the WBO bauble instead and making a few quid off that fighting Wlad who may be there for the taking.  Don't think that he beats either though. Appears to have little or no defence and whilst Wlad will jab and grab him to death, Joshua will land heavily and hurt him.
