Sascha vs Mighty Joe

Sascha, ranked 47th by boxrec, is a mighty big load as you can see. Listed at 6-7, he easily runs into the 250s with a big bone structure, seemingly ideal for a heavyweight, yet there was always something mentally missing from him at the top levels, so he never fulfilled being the next big thing that the 8th ranked Parker is currently striving for. He took a couple years off to return last year for some low level fighters, but now here he is with a hungry young buck, so what’s next?

Odds makers to heavily favor Parker, but Dimitrenko is only 34 years old and could find himself in the mix for this fight. Regardless, he serves the purpose of preparing Parker for the big guns of the division, Wladimir Klitschko or Anthony Joshua, rushing hard for a certain collision in 2017, so he’s got his work cut out for him. Banana peels need not apply.
