Parker Claims He Has Blueprint To Defeat Joshua
In preparation for a potential Spring face off between he and Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker has been studying all of Joshua’s fights and believes he has the perfect game plan to pull off the upset win.
Parker has made it known frequently that Joshua is way too muscular to deal with a good boxer who gives angles and uses movement,Parker plans prove his theory correct when they eventually face off in 2018.
“Coming into the fight I will be a lot lighter. I think angles … angles and speed. Joshua is a big guy with a lot of power who comes forward and chase you down, but if I give him angles and movement it will give him a bit of trouble so that’s what I’m looking to do,” Parker told T2T Boxing.
“The fight with Joshua is very close. We’ve had a bit of a pause as we find middle ground where both teams are happy. But I think we’ve come to a conclusion … we’re just going to tidy things up, lock it in and get the fight going. We want to lock something in before Christmas, so we can all have a holiday and enjoy it and then hit camp.”
Parker wanted to make it clear that the attacks that he and Duco Promotions have vollied at Joshua, in interviews and on social media, is not because he has anything personal against the British star.
“It’s a bit of banter, it’s a bit of fun. I’ve said many times I respect him as a fighter and I respect him as a champion and I look forward to when we clash … I think it’s going to be a great fight,” Parker said.
