Joshua vs Parker March 31st
The wait is finally over. Today Sky Sports confirmed that the unification clash between IBF & WBA ‘Super’ Champion Anthony Joshua and WBO Champion Joseph Parker will take place at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff on March 31st. The fight will also be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Joshua said “”I like to fight, that’s the main objective, and it’s showing I’m never shy of a competition,” said Joshua, who is a Sky Ambassador.
“He’s a respectable competitor, he is the WBO heavyweight champion of the world, so it’s like one step closer to adding a strap to my legacy. That’s what makes it exciting.”
Parker has vowed to rip away Joshua’s two world titles by racking up his 25th straight victory.
“Anthony Joshua is in for a huge shock,” Parker said. “A couple of months ago I heard him say ‘why should I be worried about this little kid from New Zealand’?
“Well, now he’s about to find out. The world is about to find out whether AJ can really take a punch. My entire existence is now devoted to proving what the boxing world already knows.”
This fight will make history as the first time two reigning world champions have fought in Britain.
