Share

He'll be ringside at the Principality Stadium to give a blow by blow account of the bout, then speak to both fighters and all the other key figures to find out what the next steps are for Parker and Joshua.

Joshua, IBF and WBA (Super) champion holder, is confident he will emerge victorious in front of almost 80,000 spectators at Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

"I feel ready, confident and sharp".

With the addition of Joshua vs. Parker, SHOWTIME will televise all four of the Heavyweight World titles in the same month as undefeated American Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) will defend his WBC belt against unbeaten Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) on Saturday, March 3 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"I'm looking at Parker, who's a lively challenger".

The victor potentially faces a showdown with American Deontay Wilder, who has the other major title and is undefeated with 39 knockouts in 40 professional fights.

Later, standing and holding an apple and a glass of water, Parker spoke to the many media hoping to get their own time with him. "I'm definitely preparing for a 12 round fight which is not a problem, but let's say if I've got a £20- note in my pocket I would believe I would knock Joseph Parker out, for sure", Joshua said. I see him as a great champion, the reason we wanted this fight is that we respect him.

"I swear to you, my coach knows, I probably would have just gone through the motions in training camp". I am the best Joseph Parker there is.

You can buy the fight for £19.95 and watch through your PC/Desktop/MAC, NOW TV box, iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet.

"I don't think Parker has enough, physically, to finish AJ off, I can see rounds three-five, being highly competitive, but after the seventh, AJ will prove to be too much for Parker".

"It wouldn't have mattered if it was African press, the Chinese press, Russian or the New Zealand press, I told my team 'can I make a move now because I have to be back in an hour and a half?"

"I'm determined to twin, I'm not here for a pay day, I'm here to take the belts back". I am not here for a payday, I am here to be part of history.

"I haven't decided how I want to beat him yet". I don't know if it's a knockout or if it's points or decision.

"Twenty fights, twenty knockouts, and every single person going into the fight - they believed they had the key".
