Re: Barry says world title fight will be the toughest test
Joseph Parker is a good fighter and a good man. His opponent is a little bit more experienced than him and his punch is more powerful than Parker’s but Parker has speed and has a longer reach than his opponent which he needs to use both to his advantage.
Parker needs to move around and stay away from his opponent but only move in when the time is right. Parker needs to wear him out and then knock him out to guarantee his win. His opponent, Andy Ruiz, also has a tougher jaw.
My advice to the coach, keep PM Tuilaepa far, far away from Parker before and on fight night so Parker can focus 100% on his fight without PM Tuilaepa lurking in the shadows nearby - he can be very destructive, always says the wrong thing and is the negative force that will hinder Parker.
You only have to look at the sports PM Tuilaepa got involved with - they all fell apart and lost. The man is a jinx and tell him to keep his politics to himself and out of the ring. This is a very important fight for Parker and he cannot afford to lose this - especially when you’re a Samoan.
By the way coach, the money donated to help Parker with his fight is not from the PM Tuilaepa’s pocket but from the people of Samoa. Good luck Parker and God bless you.
May the best man win.
