This prizefight is a WBO world heavyweight title eliminator with the interim world title on the line. The winner of this bout is then locked in a position to challenge reigning WBO kingpin Oleksandr Usyk.

Joe Joyce’s Betting Outlook vs Parker

Joyce captured an Olympic silver medalist in 2016 and has garnered a variety of championship accolades as a professional. Silver, international, commonwealth, European, and British belts all bolster his resume and Joyce now looks to vault to that world title tier here.

There is a rematch clause in place for this one which was reportedly a conditional aspect on Joyce’s end and this indicates the parity in this contest. I think the oddsmakers are right to see Joyce as the favorite but are also sleeping on Parker a fair bit.

The victor vaults themselves up to that rarefied air of the heavyweight division. Both men are acutely aware of the diametrically opposed trajectories both will have here; the divergent paths for the winner and loser.

Joseph Parker’s Betting Outlook vs Joyce

Parker enters this contest as Joyce’s stiffest pro boxing test and is a former world champion looking to carve out a path towards a sophomore reign with the crown. He has never been knocked out and is a savvy boxer-puncher who has a strong fight IQ behind notable physical attributes.

He has fought the likes of Anthony Joshua and Parker has been working with the WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury as of late in this Joyce camp.

This is an intriguing style clash between the 37-year-old pressure-heavy bruiser in Joyce testing skills against the fleet footwork and pugilistic pedigree of the 30-year-old Parker.

Parker has a strong seventy percent finishing rate overall but Joyce’s ninety-three percent finishing rate still outshines this. Also, Joyce has a four-inch reach advantage here and has two inches in height over Parker.

Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker Prediction

This contest is slated for twelve rounds and I see this heavyweight collision ending inside the distance. This is bold considering Parker has never been finished as a professional but I stand by it. Joyce has finishes across his last four fights and I think he extends the streak to five straight this weekend.

I think there’s value in pursuing prop bets on this contest ending inside the distance (+130), Joyce winning by way of KO or TKO (+200), and Joyce winning between rounds seven and nine (+600) presents good value.

Pick: Joe Joyce (-215)
