Frustrating to watch

Dear Editor,

Re: Parker beats Fury on points 

Frustrating fight to watch. 

Parker needs to be more dynamic in his approach to taller fighters. His style is predictable, he tends to lunge head first and has a swinging wide right which leaves him open. 

Maybe his coaching needs to emulate the styles of Tyson and Tua, who were masters of in close fighting and powerful left hooks and uppercuts. 

Otherwise, he’s a hard worker and does the basics well. Malo Laauli!
