Joshua-Parker unification fight set for March 31

David Higgins has told Joseph Parker to back down from his claims that Anthony Joshua may be a drugs cheat

Britain's Anthony Joshua will put his flawless 20-fight, 20-knock-out record on the line when he takes on New Zealand's Joseph Parker in a world heavyweight unification bout in Cardiff, Wales on March 31.

Parker is set to bank about $12million from the fight (not $30m as mentioned in some recent reports) - and even more in the rematch should he be successful - he said money wasn't a motivating factor. Everyone has their job.

He said: "I' like to wish you all a happy new year". He made two successful defences of the title before claiming two further straps, the WBA title and lightly-regarded IBO belt, with a cracking stoppage win over former lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley last April.

Joshua came through in that fight - barely - and Parker said he will not have such luck against him.

"We all know what happened last time I was in a unification fight".

It is a unification Heavyweight championship fight, we all know what happened last time I was in a unification Heavyweight championship fight against Wladimir Klitschko past year.

Brother of Hamas Foreign Minister Injured in Lebanon Car Bomb
Lebanese news outlet Al Mayadeen was one of a few media sites that reported Israeli planes were in the area of the explosion. A military source said a BMW in the southern port city of Sidon "detonated, wounding Hamas official Mohammed Hamdan".

"These fights aren't easy, cause there's a lot on the line, so respect to Team Parker for taking the challenge".

"You never really can tell what sort of weight [Joshua is] going to be, but I know Joseph Parker will definitely be coming in a little lighter than he was for the Hughie Fury fight".

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said it would be an "explosive" tussle.

"New Zealand might be a tiny country on the other side of the world but it has a hugely proud sporting tradition - and a particularly strong tradition when it comes to whipping mother England".

"Joseph Parker is the absolute epitome of the Kiwi sporting battler". He's consistently fought fighters in the world's top ten and he's beaten them all easily.

The 26-year-old Parker had made his United Kingdom debut one month previously, when he earned an underwhelming majority points verdict over challenger Hughie Fury at the Manchester Arena. "It certainly won't be a shock to me when he beats Anthony Joshua and takes his titles back home to New Zealand".

Whoever wins in March is certain to then face undefeated American Deontay Wilder, who holds the fourth belt in the heavyweight division.
