Those belts are mine, Parker tells Joshua as big fight looms

Eddie Hearn furious with Deontay Wilder amid reports WBC champion will swerve Cardiff

Kiwi puncher Parker said: "I'm looking forward to putting on the best display, the best Joseph Parker there is".

Joshua also said people need to be "realistic" on talk about facing Deontay Wilder next as he has to get past Parker first.

"I'm going for a Joshua KO in round-eight".

The two fighters will settle matters at their title unification bout at Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Sunday morning (NZT).

It was threatening enough for me to duck to my knees early on. although I came back to jab out a split decision. "He hits you and you don't know why you're getting hit". And now I'm combining the two.

The WBO titleholder will collide with Joshua, the WBA "super" and IBF champion, in a blockbuster unification clash this Saturday and Hearn is willing on the opposing team to be in full voice at the final presser. But as the pair posed for the cameras, Joshua got to look down on Parker and will expect to be doing the same on Saturday night.

Parker has undergone surgery on both elbows prior to the biggest night of his career but recent sparring partner Malik Scott told Sky Sports that the power is back in the fists of the WBO Champ. He's unbeaten and he's a challenge that AJ is up for. Parker has been the distance a few times before and taking the fight into the latter stages is his best possibility of winning the fight. "Obviously, we believe that he beats Joshua or otherwise, we wouldn't be here". "I believe Anthony Joshua can knock Joseph Parker out for sure". "He wouldn't move and then I wouldn't move either". 'We love challenges. We see him as a big challenge and that's why we want to fight him.

American Deontay Wilder, the WBC champion, is waiting in the wings to take on the victor of Sunday's bout, to unify the belts and give the world an undisputed champion. He smiled and nodded his head in time to the music at the top table as Joshua made his way to the front. 'He's at his best, I am at my best. He's got some very good attributes such as his speed and his work on the inside which could cause Joshua some issues.

"I see Joshua as a great champion". Non-Sky customers can watch the pay-per-view event live stream online via a PC, desktop, Mac, Now TV box, iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet. It will be interesting to see if Joshua attempts to slow Parker down with body shots and force the stoppage that way.

Anthony Joshua who will and Dillian Whyte as well.
