Anthony Joshua VS Joseph Parker: World Heavyweight Boxing Unification Match by ollaxworld: 11:43am On Mar 23, 2018
On 8 January 2018, the Principality Stadium in Cardiff was confirmed as the venue for the fight. On 14 January 2018, negotiations came to a close and the fight was officially announced to take place on 31 March in Cardiff, live on Sky Sports Box Office. In an official press release on 5 February 2018, Showtime announced they would televise the fight live in the United States.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has warned Joseph Parker there will “definitely be blood” during their fight next week and hopes for a heavyweight classic like Riddick Bowe’s battles with Evander Holyfield.

The WBA ‘super’ and IBF title holder can move one belt away from becoming the undisputed champion, if he takes the WBO strap from Parker at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on March 31.

But Joshua respects the speed and power of the New Zealander, who has 18 knockouts on his 24-fight unbeaten record.
“I can’t tell you exactly how the fight will go, but we’re big, we’re strong, and the punches do hurt after a while.

“I definitely know there’ll be blood. There will definitely be blood, and the thing is – you can definitely hear the leather, cracking on people’s heads, if you’re close enough as well, and we’re both fast.

“You’ll see really good combinations that you don’t really see from heavyweights,” Joshua told Sky Sports News.

I disagree...Its gonna be a KO against Parker.

Joshua has 100% KO records and he would repeat the feat on the D-day.

Aj has many flaws. He misses his target a lot, once he gets to the 4th/5th rounds,he gasses out and could easily be taken out by a strong and fast opponent who am afraid Parker is. But then ofcourse, he's got one of the heaviest punches in the heavyweight category and not forgetting his signature deadly upper cut. I think if Aj is gonna win this bout, he will have to work on his endurance which I think he has in mind as he shed a lot of weight recently and conserve energy as he gets through the middle rounds. Once he scales through this rounds, he will take Parker out. By this time Parker would not be able to absorb the rain of punches anymore

I think otherwise, AJ gasses out because he try to knockout his opponent in the early rounds.
JP is no match for AJ, JP won't leave the ring on his feet, That I assure you grin

Joseph Parker is a decent fighter. He can beat AJ. Ironically, it is people who will not be doing the fighting that are overlooking Parker. The man, Anthony Joshua, and his team know better. The most skillful and fastest champion in boxing right now is Joseph Parker. Agree, it would be difficult for him to knock out AJ but he can win on decisions since the judges and referee are neutral. Joshua's bet is to knock out Parker. This time around, he wouldn't have British referee and judges and so he just has to knock out Parker because I know he can't beat Parker on points.

One thing you must also understand is that Parker is tough. He has never been dropped in his career because he has the best footwork of the three present heavyweight champions. He may not have fought a person like Joshua but he has fought and beaten men built like Joshua, strong and big. His strength is his speed and skills and if AJ gets hurt, Parker will not back away like Klischko. He will hit and hit. Like I said earlier, AJ needs to get his strategy right. He has confessed that Parker is his toughest prospect till date. Parker has Samoan roots. They are very tough fighters.

For me, AJ needs to try and make a cut on Parker's face as early as possible so that blood can make it difficult for Parker to see well.

Or AJ needs to knock Parker out as quickly as possible because it is not possible for him to win Parker on points. He has got fast hands and he is hard to hit. Moreover, Parker and his team have forced the organizers to select neutral judges and referee so Joshua cannot get external help as he did against Takem. He needs to truly knock Parker out. He can't outpoint Parker.
