Anthony Joshua issues warning to title rival Joseph Parker

Anthony Joshua issues warning to title rival Joseph Parker

Britain's Anthony Joshua has dismissed as "fake news" suggestions that he has a weak chin ahead of his world heavyweight unification bout with New Zealand's Joseph Parker.

He said: "What I've learned from those experiences is that it will take more than any human to stop me".

He said that is when he learnt not to walk with sight, because when you're tired you don't know where you are, you walk with faith in this journey.

"Anthony will prepare diligently for Joseph Parker, he will take him deadly serious", McCracken said.

New Zealander Parker feels that facing Nigerian-born Briton Joshua, who holds the International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Organisation (IBO) heavyweight titles, would be just a ceremony.

"It's about making history now, we are always moving in that direction".

Parker responded by claiming it was his "destiny" to be in big fights such as these.

"I've heard so much in boxing trash talk that nothing's new any more".

Joshua last fought there late a year ago, when he stopped the late-replacement Carlos Takam in the tenth round of their heavyweight title fight.

"It's an exciting time to be a heavyweight".

Hearn also weighed in, challenging Higgins to repeat claims about Joshua "face to face".

It will be the first fight that unifies three world heavyweight title belts since Klitschko beat England's David Haye in 2011.

"I believe Anthony Joshua got his career-defining fight when he fought Wladimir Klitschko". I don't know what his strengths and weaknesses will be. I know he's watched me.

Joshua really came off well at that point in the presser I thought.

The 28-year-old, who holds the WBA and IBF versions of the crown, goes into the March 31 fight in Cardiff with a flawless 20-fight, 20-knock-out record. He's won all of his fights by knockout; he has a considerable height and reache advantage over Joseph Parker'. I think it's time for me to show what I can do in the ring.

"The three times I've been hurt or dropped were in the European championships when I was unfit, the second time was with David Price - he's a puncher". Afterwards it was a case of "when" not "if" boxing would return and we are thrilled to be working with Matchroom once again to raise the bar for live boxing entertainment on March 31st. "I can't wait to put on a great performance, hopefully I will catch him on the chin and knock him out".
