  • Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker NZ fight time How to watch live stream TV channel

World Boxing Organisation (WBO) and International Boxing Organisation (IBO) world heavyweight title champion Anthony Joshua has insisted he wants to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

British-Nigerian Joshua, 28, has now gone 21 fights without defeat while it was Parker's first professional loss after 25 fights. I think it's a fight Anthony Joshua wants and I think he really wants it this year.

Now it is likely that Joshua will be successful in bringing, an up until now reluctant, WBC title-holder Deontay Wilder to the ring for his next fight as he wants to be the first man in boxing history to hold all four major titles at the same time.

"To beat him? Get him in the ring and knock him spark out".

"We enjoyed being here, he (Joshua) deserved to win".

Perhaps the biggest threat lies outside the heavyweight division in Oleksandr Usyk (14-0, 11 KOs), the Ukrainian who holds two cruiserweight world titles and faces Murat Gassiev for the other two on May 11. [Whether it's] ten rounds, two rounds or 12 rounds.

"He (Joshua) is a good fighter, and today he showed he could box". I stated this would be boxing finesse, and I stuck to my word and I controlled behind the jab, the counter punches.

White House confirms Putin's meeting with Trump

Joshua took home a £13 million purse and Parker £7 million.

According to Fury's Instagram posts, Anthony Joshua is a bum and said he's not even good enough to be his sparring partner.

"Of course, I'm young, fit and strong".

"Just on this evening, I was more focused, more disciplined and carried out the tactics and was the better man".

That was the declaration from Parker's trainer Kevin Barry, in the wake of Parker's loss to Joshua in the Cardiff heavyweight unification battle.

Joshua had weighed in at 17st 4lbs (110.4kgs) on Friday, well down from a career high of 18st 2lbs (115.5) against Carlos Takam last time out, while Parker came in at 16st 12lbs (102.3). Although those backing Joshua outnumbered Parker's support, he received a healthy portion of cheers from the crowd. The second followed the same pattern as Parker was active but with Joshua landing with the heavier hooks.

Parker's raiding attacks continued to unsettle AJ, who was forced to hold in the ninth, but Joshua's spiteful work opened a cut over his foe's eye in the 10th.
