Ex-Boxing Champ Haye Warns Parker About "Absolute Monster" Joshua

Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker: Betfair punters backing Kiwi to upset AJ Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker press conference: Watch live here

Until they went face-to-face at lunchtime today, Anthony Joshua was not really sure what sort of height advantage he had over Joseph Parker. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), who is not expected to be ringside on Saturday now, holds the only belt (WBC) not on the line in Cardiff.

"He's a champion for a reason, a lively challenger".

Joseph Parker says he could feel the anger radiating from Anthony Joshua in the face-off at the end of this morning's press conference which he feels is an emotion that will backfire on the Englishman if he takes it into the ring on Sunday.

"I don't want to lose".

"There's definitely a fear of losing because it keeps me going".

"Even if you don't usually show much boxing you should seriously consider it for this one".

British sensation Joshua, who has knocked out all 20 of his professional opponents, burst onto the global scene with a dramatic knockout of long-reigning Heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko in the universally acclaimed 2017 Fight of the Year at Wembley Stadium in London. Both kept it respectable.

Joseph Parker has dismissed Anthony Joshua's "unrealistic" claims and insists he will beat the Brit because "he's not a god". But Joshua and Parker give genuine responses to questions rather than pre-rehearsed soundbites that are ready-made for the media.

"Everyone talks about Parker's speed, I believe I'm quicker, I believe I've got better footwork and I believe I'm stronger".

"We've trained hard for this fight, prepared and like I said, I am confident". I don't know what my weight will be but I feel great. I'm here to be part of history and I'm not just doing it for myself, I'm doing it for my team, my family and my country. "I'm going to beat him, I haven't decided how I'm going to beat him yet".

"I know he needs to come back with a couple of easy fights, but there's easy fights and then there's fights that I'm just going to get absolutely crucified for. 100 per cent, these are mine". He won the title by defeating Andy Ruiz in Auckland in December 2016 and has had two successful defences.
