Potential Joseph Parker showdown against Anthony Joshua edges closer to reality

05 Décembre 2017

Deontay Wilder, the big-hitting WBC heavyweight world champion, is certain Anthony Joshua will fight Joseph Parker next and has already stated he won't settle for anything less than a 50-50 split if and when he gets his chance against the Englishman.

Negotiations with Parker's team have progressed although the stumbling block of the purse split remains in place, with the Kiwi's promoter refusing to accept less than a 65-35 divide. If they don't want to fight at this time, that it is ok.

'I knock Joshua out and don't be surprised if it is in the first round. They got him on his agenda.

Parker, the WBO world champion, and Higgins have begun their campaign around the apparent weakness of Joshua's chin and the lack of analysis of said vulnerability in the British media, and Wilder has had his own dig at "AJ's protectors" whom have praised him for "beating a 41-year-old man [Wladimir Klitschko] that was out for nearly two years [and] that was already dethroned".

"The truth is we were getting pretty close, and then there was talk of me going to London, but I made it clear I won't unless there was a concession on the Joshua side". He is their top priority which is fine.

"If they want to have one fight apiece, and fight me next, that is fine".

Guards Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles Jr. pace WVU's scoring, notching 19 and 14.9 points per game respectively. The game will be televised nationally on ESPNU with Jason Benetti and Dino Gaudio providing the commentary.

The general consensus is that the fight must happen in 2018, although unless common ground or a compromise can be found, the encounter everybody wants could be in danger of never seeing the light of day.

"We're not [going to] chase [anybody]".

"I think Joshua and them (Parker) I heard (are fighting) sometime in March", Wilder told 78sportstv, via BoxingNewsandViews.

On November 4, ex-WBC boss Bermane Stiverne was destroyed in round one - a devastating destiny dished out to 18 of Wilder's other previous victims, including Brit flop Audley Harrison.

A deal with Parker, who holds the WBO world title, is going to come at a much cheaper price than WBC champion Deontay Wilder. They want Joseph Parker. "If he doesn't want the fight, then that's fine. We will stop the world in a moment in time to see once and for all, who is the heavyweight champion of the world".
