Joseph Parker is hoping Tyson Fury’s ‘dangerous’ decision to deploy a different game plan against Deontay Wilder won’t come back to haunt him on fight night.
Fury insists he intends to knock Wilder out after feeling he was robbed of a points victory in their first fight in 2018.
The Gypsy King changed his entire coaching team less than two months away from the fight and Parker admitted the sudden change in direction was a concern.
‘There’s danger there because the blueprint in the first fight was working,’ Parker told Metro.co.uk.
‘The only thing was he got caught with a right hand. Everything he did was working.
‘I’m not sure about changing his team or how the tactics will affect Fury, but we’ll just have to wait and see if it was the right decision or not.’
Parker is a good friend of Fury’s and has regularly sparred with the British heavyweight down the years.
The former WBO champion heaped praise on Wilder and Fury for leading the way in boxing by staging the big fights in their prime.
Parker is expecting another thrilling fight, but predicted Fury would be the eventual winner on Saturday night.
‘It’s so exciting because the first fight was so controversial. Hopefully they’ve made the adjustments,’ he said.
‘They’ve had a lot of time to watch back the tapes and see the bad things they did in the first fight.
‘I’ll be siding with Fury just because of his boxing ability, how he moves as a big man.
‘But don’t get me wrong, it’s a dangerous, dangerous fight for both guys.
‘It’s so good to see two undefeated fighters come together, put everything on the line to see who the best is. We need more of that.’
