Anthony Joshua Warned To Focus On Joseph Parker, Not Deontay Wilder

Both champions are putting their ideal unbeaten records on the line, along with three major world titles, and Joshua has given credit to the 26-year-old Parker for pursuing the fight at this stage of his career.

Instead, the 28-year-old is fully focused on the challenge presented to him from Parker - who he will have to beat if he is to face Wilder later in 2018.

Joseph Parker has warned Anthony Joshua he will give him little to no breathing space in their upcoming unification bout after an interview of the pair going face-to-face aired in the United Kingdom this week.

He said: "His upbringing, you know spiritual people, solid people, same as my family, spiritual, solid, born in Africa".

"He's worked hard, and that's why I see him as one of the lions in the jungle".

"He wants to fight and get it on".

"Parker, like Joshua, is an unbeaten heavyweight".

"I can't sit here and talk as if I'm the hardest puncher, I'm the best athlete, and then go and fight Joe Bloggs that no-one has heard of, with 50 losses on his record", said Joshua.

While Parker will be a big test for the Briton, the bigger title unification fight right now is arguably between Joshua and Wilder who have been calling each other out for some time now.

"He got off the canvas to knock out former long-reigning heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, and nearly had his nose split in half when Carlos Takam head-butted him in his most recent outing last October".

Which fights has Anthony Joshua earned the most money from so far?

During his career, Joshua has made most of his fights look easy and the only challenge which he faced was last year when we went up against 41-year- old Wladimir Klitschko. With talks and reports on a potential fight being negotiated between the duo, Parker's promoter David Higgins feels "AJ" is underestimating his fighter and should do so only at his own risk. He's a young champion.

"Come March 31, I'm going to chase him around [the ring]".

"I'm going to expose him and his weaknesses".
