What has Parker EVER done to warrant being better than Worrell? I've got 5 hours on Parker and about 2-3 on Worrell, and have yet to find it....

Parker has one or 2 fights in his career that stick out , his one punch of Grimson (but Parker lost to Grimson in the rematch in the same game), his one punch that broke the nose of Steve Mclaren when Parker was in Hershey (though many believe punch stat wise, McLaren won that fight) other than that, a TKO of an out of season Oliwa is the only other win that stands out in his favor against the heavys, you can throw in the win vs VandenBussche for good measure....Parker has been beaten or drawn by the majority of the heavys though, including a pair of bad showings vs Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre, in which Parker got cut in both fights, a knocked down by Matt Johnson, a couple bad showing vs Brashear, and a loss in the 2nd fight vs Worrell in which Parker was cut.

Granted, there aren't alot of definitive wins over Worrells career either, but to name a few....Ray got popped pretty good a few times in their fight, he beat McKenzie, Chara, Colin White a couple times, but again, like Parker, nothing impressive, the diffrnce between the 2 is their losses....Worrell has one to Langdon (when Worrells thumb was injured) and couple of decisions to Shelley, Chara, and Grimson.

Both were dominant in juniors and the minors, but neither has come close to claiming the title....lump them in with Laraque and Brashear as heavyweights that just don't get the job done enough to be crowned champ....
