Anthony Joshua shows his class with message to Joseph Parker's mum

Anthony Joshua shows his class with message to Joseph Parker's mum

If Joseph Parker wants to rile Anthony Joshua it's going to be tough. Everything to gain, so I just agreed straight away.

Anthony Joshua has continued to uphold his respectful reputation. "Every time I am tested", Joshua said in his hometown of London. "My entire existence is now devoted to proving what the boxing world already knows".

Cardiff's Principality Stadium, where Joshua successfully defended his titles against Carlos Takam - will host the bout.

The Gypsy King has been calling out heavyweight champ AJ since stepping up his comeback.

"You'll find out in this fight whether I'm the super-human", Joshua said, "or I've got something pushing on this super-human power that he claims I have".

The victor of the fight will take a step towards becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999-2000.

"But if he can get back in to shape and get back to some sort of form like he was when he beat Klitschko - or even before that - I still believe he's the best heavyweight in the world and will probably beat all those guys".

Parker's promoter David Higgins has predicted that his fighter will ruin the ideal record of the home favourite. "It has been said that he is punching above his weight, but he didn't become WBO heavyweight champion by being lucky".

"Joseph needs a career-defining fight", he said. He's consistently fought fighters in the world's top 10 and he's beaten them all easily.

Price has fought just once since his defeat to Christian Hammer at the start of previous year, but the Liverpudlian has revealed that he has already agreed to face the Russian, who is yet to provide an answer regarding the potential bout.

"I'm very blessed to be in this position and to be involved in an event like this and I represent New Zealand and Samoa", he says. We knew he could be the best heavyweight in the world, and previous year the world saw that is the case. "More excitement is guaranteed".
