The WBO world heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker, seems intent on forcing a fight with the WBA / IBF heavyweight title holder Anthony Joshua.

With the WBC champion, Deontay Wilder, also wanting a part of the unification series that could be about to take place, these are exciting times for the heavyweight division.

Here at Vital Boxing, we?re of the opinion that Joshua?s camp will take a fight with Parker before taking on Wilder in the summer.

Parker, recently, held a press conference whereby it appears his intentions are to lure Joshua into a showdown.

In front of the assembled journalists, Parker?s management pulled out a video, which was subsequently shown, of fighters claiming to have floored Joshua in sparring.

Continuing, Parker?s promoter, David Higgins, offered gifts to anyone who can produce further evidence of Joshua being floored, with Higgins remarking,

‘Why does Parker beat Joshua? Simple, Parker has a granite chin, whereas Joshua may have a glass jaw. It’s the worst kept secret in British boxing. No one really talks about it.

‘So our offer to anyone in the UK, send us proof that you have also dropped Anthony Joshua. Be the first to do so and we will send you a special gift in the mail.

‘Our second offer of today is to all Joshua fans in the world. If you can send us proof that Parker has ever been dropped, we will send you a cheque for £10,000.

‘Our message to Anthony Joshua is we want the opportunity to test your chin so much that we will let you keep 65% of the profit even though it’s an intercontinental unification. You have no excuses, show Parker some respect and make the fight.’

Parker, jumping on the bandwagon, also offered to match Higgins offer adding another £10,000 to the pot.

Bring it on is all I?ll say, Joshua will take Parker out in my opinion!
