Joseph Parker as you've never seen him before

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.

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.

Parker meanwhile is nearing the end of his training camp in Las Vegas and the 26-year- old is set to arrive in Cardiff next week to complete preparations for his world title fight. 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.

"Parker, like Joshua, is an unbeaten heavyweight. It's one thing to quietly analyze future possibilities, but if they are going any further and are in the early stage of negotiations, it's far too early for any of that".

"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".

"He is firing on all cylinders". "I talk to Kevin and Joe most days and there is a calm, confident air". He's quick, he's sparring lots of rounds, and everyone is happy.

"This talk of Joe being overawed about being in the United Kingdom with 80,000, that doesn't worry him at all". He fought on the [Wladimir] Klitschko undercard in Germany at a sold out event.

Anthony Joshua is dropping knowledge in his latest collaboration with Under Armour.

But much of the build-up has focused on the prospect of Joshua colliding with WBC champion Deontay Wilder in a blockbuster battle to unify the division later this year.

The undefeated Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, has knocked out 39 of his 40 professional opponents and could be the most powerful puncher in boxing.

Nevertheless, Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) respects Parker's power and willingness to challenge him in front of what will be a completely pro-Joshua crowd in excess of 78,000 at Principality Stadium.
