Parker Will Be Overwhelmed, Joshua Predicts

Joshua vs. Parker Anthony Joshua's keys to victory

Three world heavyweight titles are on the line, with the victor to be crowned WBO, WBA and IBF champion.

In fact, all three of Parker's last three fights have gone the distance as he has stepped up to world level with 18 of his first 21 fights before that ending inside the distance.

The 28-year-old wrote in his column with the Evening Standard: "Tyson Fury has got a lot of people talking recently about the big news he is going to announce but I don't spend any of my time thinking about him".

"My future stops on Saturday".

"I think these two will gel and it will be one of the best fights yet". All this talk about Wilder. A clearly proud man, Parker will be looking to honour his country and his people as he makes the giant step up to a stadium fight against the best current active heavyweight on the planet.

"He (Parker) hasn't had as many fights as Joshua and for him this is a defining fight but I think it will be one of Anthony Joshua's hardest so far".

Team GB super-heavyweight amateur Frazer Clarke, who has sparred "more than 60 rounds" with Joshua to help prepare for Parker this weekend, explained what happened the first time he fought the Watford man.

However, Joshua has admitted that he is feeling a little nervous about facing Parker.

But he insisted that, after several hours of press duties, he had to eat before heading off for another training session.

Parker's camp have accused Joshua of lacking respect in the build-up to the fight and warned that they would be ready to abandon Tuesday's planned press conference if the Londoner kept them waiting.

"He's quick and can take a punch", added the WBA and IBF champion.

"Every fight is a blessing, every fight has a reason in the long run". I don't know if it's a knockout or points or a decision. I haven't even decided how I'm going to beat him yet. "I don't know maybe other sports I want to give them the opportunity that I have had to maybe put them on the world stage". I'll see how I feel on fight night. "These belts are mine".

The eyes of the boxing world will be on Cardiff as Londoner faces Kiwi Parker on Saturday night in a heavyweight unification bout.

The south Aucklander, using the London gym of former heavyweight champion David Haye, looked fast, fluid and loose in a Monday training session which included several rounds of shadow boxing, several more on the pads with trainer Kevin Barry and a finishing set on the heavy bag.

"It feels like when Anthony Joshua fights it's like a national holiday now".

"It is a hurdle that Anthony has to get over".
