Anthony Joshua confident of keeping his title against Parker

Joseph Parker has accused Anthony Joshua of showing a lack of respect before their heavyweight title fight. It's good news. "Everything has been timed to suit this, so there's nothing bad about it from Parker's perspective".

"It's his decision but it's disrespectful", Parker told SKY Sports UK.

But he and the British public and the bookies are underestimating me.

Joshua, who has not lost in 20 bouts, said: "Your size does cope with impact, with more robustness you can take a lot more".

Joshua has been exclusively promoted by Hearn's Matchroom organisation thus far in his professional career but he's yet to fight outside the United Kingdom.

"If he actually trusts his body he would not be trying to change who he is".

"I definitely know there'll be blood". We will be lighter. "So, I'm happy that Dana's coming into the game and hopefully, he can add some excitement, and we can progress forward and make some good money and make some good fights".

Parker said his team are focussing on their own preparation and are not concerned with Joshua. He's probably trying to get advice from Klitschko. There are things we saw that we can do better. "They're judging us on our last two or three fights, and I think they see Joshua as unbeatable", he said. There is the element of surprise.

"If not, stop hooting and hollering because we'll just freeze him out".

'In my mind I've played through the scenario of knocking him out.

Joshua faces off against Joseph Parker in another unification fight in Cardiff in a week on Saturday and there is no doubt about which fight he will be eyeing to take place after that bout.

"People want to see how good you are with every fight".

Meanwhile, Parker is predicting plenty of improvement from his much talked about double elbow surgery that he underwent in December.

"I am expecting a long tough fight but in this division, one punch can change anything".

Sitting alongside trainer Kevin Barry and promoter David Higgins, Parker is warm and amusing, but with an occasional edge of steel. That's why we're back in here later on sparring.

His trainer, Kevin Barry, said he was supposed to have the surgeries two years ago to originally remove bone chips.

"Since the surgery there's been a lot of benefits".

"We have been managing pain in almost every single training camp, and for us now to go into a camp for the biggest fight of Joe's career, and have no pain at all, it was a very good move for us getting the surgery".
