Froch: Joshua Needs To Make a Statement In Cardiff
Sky sports analyst Carl Froch is hoping that even with Deontay Wilder not being at ringside for Joshua-Parker, that a unification fight between the WBC champion and Anthony Joshua happens soon.
Froch believes the pressure is on Joshua to make it happen, even though the analyst thinks Joshua is fine with keeping the Alabama boxer waiting.
“I don’t really understand why ‘Josh’ just disregards him, he seems to be happy to keep him waiting. Wilder is the one. The one we want to see him in with and the fight he needs to win,” Froch said to Sky Sports.
“There is always pressure on Joshua but thanks to Deontay Wilder, there is even more this time around. A lot of people are asking questions. Is he coming over? When is he going to fight ‘Josh’ and if not, why not? All of a sudden, there is someone out there who is smashing people to bits and looking fantastic doing it.”
The only way Joshua can take the pressure off according to the Sky Sports Analyst is by outclassing Parker on March 31st.
“Josh has to beat Parker, but this one is also about how he wins it. He really could send a message out to Wilder. Parker is unbeaten, a world champion – something Wilder hasn’t faced – and if he does the job and looks really classy doing it, either in points or by smashing him to bits, that not only sends a message, it also takes the pressure off him.”
