What has been said?
Parker: “Good on Jack for stepping up to take this fight,”.
“He’s a tough guy who is very skilful and he clearly backs himself. But unfortunately for him, he has made a huge mistake. I’ve got a point to prove and he is standing in my way.”
“I’m going to smash him. He’s got big balls I’ll give him that”.
“But there are divisions in boxing for a reason. I’m going to be the bigger man. I’m going to fight like the bigger man, back him up and push him back. I’m going to make him think about if he really wants to be in the heavyweight division.”
Massey: “Joseph Parker is a big puncher, he’s fast and he’s tough, but I am also a big puncher, I’m fast and I’m tough.”
“I’ve never been put down by a headshot ever in my career. I’m going to be there to the end and I think it’s going to be a points win in my favour.”
“I think all the pressure is on him for this fight, coming off that loss. There’s no pressure on me, it’s all on him and I think that will be a massive factor.”
“I think he’s gonna come out and he’s going to try and get rid of me, try and knock me out. It’s not going to happen and I think it’s a bad game plan. We’ve seen him tire out in fights – that will happen again and I’ll make him pay for it.”
