Anthony Joshua nearly a stone lighter ahead of showdown with Joseph Parker

Slimmed down Joseph Parker's message to Anthony Joshua Get ready for war

Slimmed down Joseph Parker's message to Anthony Joshua Get ready for war

While Takam says that we'll have to wait and see what happens, people have already seen the overwhelming favorite as Joshua.

Joshua made a fifth defense of his IBF title and second of the WBA strap on a night that reportedly earned him £13 million and Parker £7 million. That's how big this guy is.

"You will be in for a good, good fight tomorrow night, believe me".

Parker is mobile with fast hands so Joshua has come in light, so he isn't sluggish.

"The biggest thing for me is the challenge of fighting someone like Joshua, and the challenge of if it goes into a dark place, how long will I stay there for?"

"I think one of the dangers for AJ is, Joseph's very laid-back, he doesn't seem that bothered".

"I am like so now you are comparing me to a child, you are saying a child can do what I worked so hard to achieve and I just took that as envy", Wilder said.

As a fellow Brit, I love Anthony Joshua! "He's the favourite and that's a reason to go with that outcome alone". "I'm focused and I understand it's a boxing match and the people are expecting the pinnacle of boxing".

When the Kiwi did get trapped on the ropes, Joshua looked to let fly with combinations while Parker's escape route was to charge at him.

"It's a 70/30 split to AJ for me". Which channel can I see it on?

"I se Joshua knocking Parker out".

Victory over Takam followed that over Wladimir Klitschko, when Joshua risked defeat in pursuit of an early knockout, but despite external pressure to deliver the finish many expect this weekend, Joshua is determined to remain disciplined. "And Joshua's punch is special". I'm winning, racking up wins and it's been going well. He's too big, and too powerful for him. That's the case for all Parker fights.

Massachusetts may join suit over census question
Constitution in Article I, Section 2 and the consequences would be far more serious than any brief discomfort of recent arrivals. This pre-1950s approach to the census would, of course, lead to an undercount of the "actual Enumeration" required by the U.S.

The closer Anthony Joshua gets to boxing greatness, the more the sport's new superstar is driven by a fear of failure.

"I'll become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world".

Parker won't get cleaned out because he's a tough unit. Game as a peddle. And if Parker can tire Joshua out, he could stop him.

"He was brought up to dress the best and wear himself well, be clean-cut", Parker's mother, Sala, told The Associated Press in a recent interview. "But no, he can not beat Anthony Joshua at this point in his career". "I see this fight going into the late rounds and I do give Parker a chance".

"David said when we were negotiating, Joseph likes to have a good dance before his fight".

Joshua, nearly a stone lighter than when he beat Carlos Takam in Cardiff last October, did enough without setting the fight alight, while Parker had his moments, even if an upset victory never looked on.

Joshua is considered the biggest star in the heavyweight division selling out hometown crowds of over 70 thousand. His chin is suspect. "I'm here for war, you'll have to do everything to beat me".

"If he loses composure in the ring, I will be able to tell", said Joshua, 28.

Parker is 24-0, with 18 of his wins by knockout. But Parker came away with a majority decision and went the distance for a third consecutive fight.

"So far Parker hasn't been in stressful situations in the ring like Joshua has, but he does possess some attributes that you have to take seriously". I think Joseph Parker has more than a prayer. There's a strong possibility that he can be hit and hurt in this fight.

"It's going to be a closer fight than anyone thinks".

Unlike Joshua, he has never been knocked down as an amateur or a professional, a fact his team have repeatedly pointed to since they began chasing this fight around a year ago.
