  • Joshua and Parker to meet in March

The pair met up in the Sky Sports News studio to sign the deal and then try and get the upper hand as the countdown to the heavyweight unification fight in Cardiff on March 31 got underway.

"I'm delighted to get this fight made - it's been a long time coming", said Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn.

Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker will put their titles and reputations on the line when they meet in a world heavyweight title clash in Cardiff on March 31. "A couple of months ago I heard him say 'why should I be anxious about this little kid from New Zealand"?

Parker is often overlooked as a top-level heavyweight due to him residing and fighting out of New Zealand, is Joshua's most testing fight to date outside of Wladimir Klitschko.

'It is a unification heavyweight championship fight. My entire existence is now devoted to proving what the boxing world already knows'. "Training camp is under way and before you know, 31 March will be upon us". "Champions should fight Champions and AJ continues to step up to the challenges".

Parker's representative David Higgins arrived in the United Kingdom last week to finalise a deal. "This is another huge unification fight for Anthony as he continues to make history in the quest to become undisputed World heavyweight champion".

He clearly showed he could, against Klitschko, but he also struggled to hold off the much older Klitschko at times in that fight.

"Eddie has been great to work with from day one", Higgins said.

"He thinks he's got me physically - he may be big, he may be strong with all these muscles, but muscles aren't going to help you in the fight apart from power".

But Joshua is paying little attention to talk of Parker's renowned chin as he will instead attempt to break down the Kiwi with the same sustained body assault that grinded down the resistance of Carlos Takam in October. He's consistently fought fighters in the world's top ten and he's beaten them all easily.

"I feel if I win it will not be a shock".

The winner is likely to target the victor of the Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz fight on March 3, where the former will defend his WBC belt in NY.

Parker (24-0) picked up the vacant WBO title with a points win over the previously unbeaten Andy Ruiz Jr.in Auckland in December of 2016.
