AJ is about to face his toughest challenge yet against the undefeated Parker
Saturday 31 March, 6pm, Sky Sports Box Office. £19.95 for SD, £20.95 for HD. Booking now open
Heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker are preparing to step into the ring under the lights of Cardiff’s Principality Stadium later this month for a unification bout that’s got the whole world talking.
British superstar Joshua, who remains undefeated in all 20 of his professional fights, is putting his WBA, IBF and IBO titles on the line. Meanwhile, the undefeated Parker is risking his WBO belt for ultimate glory. It’s all or nothing for both men, and you can watch every thunderous jab, hook and uppercut exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.
And while Joshua’s CV includes 20 knockouts (including a hard-fought win over Carlos Takam last time out), New Zealand’s Parker is also well versed in the art of knocking opponents’ lights out. With 18 KOs from 24 pro fights, the 26-year-old is as explosive an opponent as AJ has ever encountered. If he gets past Parker, Joshua is likely to face formidable American Deontay Wilder in another unification bout, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves: the Brit is likely to have his hands full containing the latest challenger to his throne.
If this headline fight isn’t enough to get your mouth watering, you can also look forward to a stellar undercard. British heavyweight David Price will be taking on former Olympic champ Alexander Povetkin, while home-grown stars Ryan Burnett, Joe Cordina, Andy Townend and Morgan Jones all appear on the bill. Saturday night’s definitely alright for fighting.
Here’s how the two heavyweight champs square up…
