Joshua vrs Parker Fight Announced

The fight will unify Joshua's WBA "super", IBF and IBO titles with Parker's WBO titles with the victor presumably being the front runner to fight WBC champion Deontay Wilder later this year to unify all four world titles. "A couple of months ago I heard him say 'Why should I be anxious about this little kid from New Zealand?'" Parker said.

Parker's representative David Higgins arrived in the United Kingdom last week to finalise a deal. I am looking forward to it, training camp is under way and before you know it March 31 will be upon us'.

Part of Parker's approach has been to taunt Joshua for his supposed "glass chin", and the Kiwi made reference once again of his plans to expose his frail defence when the pair eventually meet.

The bout will mark the first time in history that two reigning Heavyweight champions have gone head-to-head in the UK.

Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, said he was delighted to finally settle on a deal for the bout.

Joshua became IBF heavyweight champion by defeating Charles Martin at London's O2 Arena in April 2016.

"I been waiting on that boy for a long time now". I just want to challenge and I think there should be one champion. It was the biggest heavyweight fight in British history.

Anthony Joshua has accused Joseph Parker of lacking respect and says he will not shake the New Zealander's hand after he wins their unification bout.

They also offered to pay £10,000 to anyone who could provide further footage.

"Joseph Parker is the absolute epitome of the Kiwi sporting battler".

Parker is undefeated in his 24 professional fights, with 18 of those wins coming by a knockout. He's consistently fought fighters in the world's top ten and he's beaten them all easily. "It certainly won't be a shock to me when he beats Anthony Joshua and takes his titles back home to New Zealand".

Joseph Parker won the WBO title vacated by Tyson Fury in December of 2016 with a razor-thin decision over Andy Ruiz in Auckland.

The 29-year-old said his team settled for Parker because negotiations with WBC champion, Deontay Wilder, have proved too hard. He won a lopsided decision against Razvan Cojanu in New Zealand on May 6 and then he traveled to Manchester, England, and won a majority decision against mandatory challenger Hughie Fury, the cousin of former world champion Tyson Fury, in his hometown on September 23.
