Higgins Says Parker Could Handle Wilder

Anthony-Joshua

That is all we are saying, be realistic in negotiations.

Joshua's current contract with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing organisation still has one year remaining, meaning any prospective switch could come as early as 2019.

Joshua, though, sees Parker as a potentially trickier opponent than the American.

Obviously if White is planning on making a splash with a boxing promotion, there may be no better way that by signing a fighter as talented as Joshua and then begin building him on an worldwide stage. If not, (he should) stop hooting and hollering because we'll just freeze him out.

Wilder is expected to be at the Principality Stadium as Joshua takes on Parker in front of an expected crowd of 78,000.

Laughing and joking, Joshua couldn't have been more laid back 10 days out from heavyweight unification fight as he put on a show for the media in the gym used by Britain's Olympic boxers, his body looking as chiseled as ever. "Behind the scenes they're different, a lot of the things that they say are different. I just know what it is like to be victorious, I know how to deal with a lot of distractions of being in an audience so big and how to entertain people", Joshua said. "There are rumours that Parker has been injured for the past two or three fights but now is injury-free and looks unbelievable in training".

Barnstable students to hold 'March for Our Lives' event
Students at 3,000 schools protested gun violence in the wake of the deaths of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School . But what lead the 15-year-old student to organize an event of her own? Miley Cyrus has also confirmed her participation.

"People talk about Parker's durability and his chin - we'll find out about his chin and his durability, but I do believe Joseph has an unbelievable amount of heart. I think, technically, this is a tougher fight than Wilder".

Aware of the quality of the unbeaten New Zealander, Joshua predicted the fight was going to be extraordinary. After some debate over his weight, Joshua has confirmed he intends to tip the scales lighter than for previous fights at "112kg max", or 17st 8lbs.

He weighed in at a career-high 18st 2lbs for his last fight against Carlos Takam in October.

"In terms of how I'm feeling, in terms of my weight, I'm comfortable".

Joshua will put his WBA, IBO and IBF world heavyweight belts on the line against WBO champion Joseph Parker in Cardiff on March 31.

Joshua, who has not lost in 20 bouts, said: "Your size does cope with impact, with more robustness you can take a lot more".
