“I like to fight, that’s the main objective, and it’s showing I’m never shy of a competition,” said Joshua,
“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.”
While Parker says he is out to shock the world and prove that he’s the top mn in the division –
“Anthony Joshua is in for a huge shock, 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.”
