Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker Betting Tips 

Joyce is the favourite heading into the bout. You can expect Parker to endure some heavy punches during the fight. Joyce's recent fight against Christian Hammer saw him struggle through the opening two rounds. 

Round No. 3 was Joyce's breakout point. He battled back and went on to defeat Hammer. Joyce will need to start strongly against a difficult opponent. 

Parker should start well. He will want to quiet the crowd. Joyce should have the backing of the fans in attendance, making it difficult for Parker. 

Joyce has won 13 of 14 fights via knockout. Parker won't be easy to knock out. The Kiwi has never lost via knockout. Both losses to Joshua and Whyte were via decision. Joyce's last fight fights were either KO or TKO wins. He is 3/1 to win by KO or TKO on Saturday. 

A knockout win could end in profits. The odds of a win via decision are slightly less attractive. Even though Parker has never been knocked out, Joyce could do it. 

Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker Prediction 

Parker will try to keep Joyce at a distance. If Joyce gets close enough, he can land some heavy hands. In their first match, Parker was knocked down in the opening round against Derek Chisora. He got up and went on to win the fight by a split decision. 

Although Parker has never lost via knockout, Joyce could send the Kiwi to the mat. Parker should start fast to disrupt Joyce's game plan. As the fight wears on, Joyce's pace should be too much for Parker. The London-born Joyce puts pressure on opponents and tires them.
