Parker: I would love to fight Joshua

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO champion Joseph Parker is confident he can defeat any heavyweight on the planet and would welcome the opportunity to clash with the IBF/WBA champion Anthony Joshua. Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Parker said, “At first I have Hughie Fury and I am not going to look past him, but I would love the Joshua fight. Joshua is always improving and looked great against Klitschko last time out, he’s a clever fighter who wants what I have.

“He’s got two titles but there are two more in the division and I have one of them. If he wants to unify the division, he has to face me or (WBC Champion) Deontay Wilder – I would love to set up a fight. I back myself against any heavyweight. I train hard, focus and believe I can beat anyone out there. He believes he can beat me so let’s get it done.”
