Joshua, Parker Heavyweight Title Fight Set To Be Announced

Anthony Joshua is looking to seal a deal to take on Joseph Parker later this year

"You never really can tell what sort of weight he's going to be, but I know Joseph Parker will definitely be coming in a little lighter than he was for the Hughie Fury fight".

TYSON FURY will get his shot at Anthony Joshua - according to newly-appointed promoter Frank Warren - and Anthony Joshua's contract situation could make it even easier.

He must sign for a fight by the end of this month to ensure The Ring belt is not lost and by calling out Charr who, unlike Joshua, Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder, does not hold a world title belt, he has earmarked a potential next opponent. "It's heavy-handed. I've apologised and told them we were drunk".

Despite claims from promoter Eddie Hearn that we would see a more trimmed down Joshua for his most recent bout, a tenth round victory over late replacement Carlos Takam in Cardiff, "AJ" came in heavier than ever at 18st 2lbs last October.

"If we get the deal fully done then I'll send him on a plane straight away", he added.


"Shall I give him a nickname?"

He said there had been difficulties in organising a U.S. fight "so we're looking to bring the other guy Joseph Parker, who is a tidy champion". "Again, nothing until the contracts are signed".

"I'm not going to go into the details of the deal, it was a private conversation, but we have a deal and that's it". But Parker has won all 24 of his professional fights.

Asked if he was expecting "fireworks" at the press conference, Parker said, tongue in cheek after a campaign to highlight what he and Higgins have described as Joshua's "glass" jaw: "I haven't purchased any to take over, so..." "The money - if you train hard and focus on what you have to do, the money comes".

"It's a great opportunity to make a statement".
