Joshua - Parker fight set to be confirmed

Parker (24-0, 18 KOs), who hasn't fought since his majority decision win over Hughie Fury in September 2017, will be defending his WBO strap while also bidding to claim Joshua's IBF and WBA belts.

The unification title fight is set to take place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff on April 1 (NZ time).

However progress was made shortly before the new year, with Parker's co-promoter David Higgins revealing that his boxer had accepted between 30 to 35 per cent of the purse.

Duco are sending a small team, alongside Parker, to follow promoter David Higgins - who flew to London earlier this week to meet face-to-face with Joshua's handler Eddie Hearn.

Fair play, Joshua. He's clearly getting used to these big TV shows at this stage. It's not even in question for them.
