Indeed, Parker is a bigger name than Pulev by virtue of his nearly 18-month reign as WBO heavyweight champion, as well as his unification fight with Anthony Joshua in which he lost his championship.
Parker's reign as WBO champion was ended by a points loss in his unification clash with Joshua, while Whyte was stopped in a brutal battle with AJ, and "The Body Snatcher" urged the Kiwi to stand and trade with him.
The Whyte fight, with a mandatory challenging position against Joshua going to the victor, certainly fits that bill.

On paper and stylistically speaking, these lines up to likely become the most exciting heavyweight fight of the year. "Obviously we came close against Anthony Joshua (but) didn't quite get the win", he said. Ortiz rocked Wilder earlier in the fight and looked to have him all but out on his feet though Wilder was able to recover and ultimately retain his title. "That pretty much speaks for itself", said Parker - the only fighter to so far take Joshua the full distance. I think that this is the one.
"Whatever happens, I'm not going to cry about it because there are only two champions now instead of three and they are probably going to fight eachother".
His promoter David Higgins had threatened to withdraw Parker from the WBO, WBA and IBF title fight with Joshua over concerns surrounding the officials, and he added: "We would like a rematch one day, perhaps with a different referee". I'm looking forward to going back to training, and burning off the pies I've eaten in New Zealand. I've done enough work.
