You can hear exclusive live commentary of Whyte vs Parker from 7pm on Saturday night here on talkSPORT
There’s little to choose between heavyweights Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker.
The pair are preparing for a potentially career-defining showdown in London, which will be broadcast exclusively live on talkSPORT.
Whye tipped the scales at 18st 6lbs 9oz, while Parker came in at 17st 4lbs as they weighed in for Saturday’s crucial clash.
Whyte vs Parker: Tale of the tape
Both fighters come into the bout with just one defeat on their pro record.
Anthony Joshua is responsible for each of those, first out-gunning Whyte back in December 2015, before a points victory over Parker at the Principality Stadium in March.
Whyte and Parker are both 6ft4, but it’s The Body Snatcher who has the significant reach advantage.
The Kiwi has been in the ring for 25 more rounds in his career, despite being four years junior to his opponent.
That might be what eventual tips the scales in this one, with Parker just about edging it with the bookmakers.
But Whyte is trying not to let his lack of comparable experience bother him in what has been a relatively polite build-up to the fight.
He said: “I haven’t had a long professional career or a long amateur career, so I am still learning and picking up bits and pieces every day.
“He’s a young guy but he’s got about three times the experience I’ve got, so it’s tough.”
Reach: 198.1 cm
Reach: 193 cm
When is the fight?
Fight night is on Saturday, July 28.
Expect the main event to get going around 10pm at the O2 Arena.
