Parker: I’ll Smash “Glass Jaw” Joshua
Even though many believe that WBO heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker will be the underdog in his March 31st title unification fight against Anthony Joshua, Parker feels the opposite.
“I feel if I win it will not be a shock. I do think it is my time and I’ll come there confident in my ability. I genuinely believe I can knock him out and there is no pressure where I’m standing right now. There is no expectation on me, no pressure,” Parker told The Daily Telegraph.
With a deal reached between Parker and Joshua for a March 31st date in Cardiff, Wales, Parker has one thing on his mind, and that’s knocking out the undefeated Joshua.
“All I’m focused on is being in great shape, training hard and doing my best to knock him out and catch his glass jaw,” Parker said.
“This is my sole mission: to smash to bits the man with the glass chin. Our team has come up with this feeling and this theory that he has a glass chin and my goal is to smash his glass chin, crack it and see if he can withstand the punches that are coming his way. I really can’t wait for this fight.”
Parker was last in action back in September, when he traveled to Manchester to win a twelve round decision over mandatory challenger Hughie Fury.
While Joshua retained his three titles in October, with a tenth round stoppage of mandatory challenger Carlos Takam at Principality.
