I'm Younger, Sharper, Stronger Than Klitschko, Parker Tells Joshua

I'm Younger, Sharper, Stronger Than Klitschko, Parker Tells Joshua

Joshua is putting his International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association titles on the line against World Boxing Organization champion Parker in front of an expected 78,000 sell-out crowd at the Principality Stadium.

But as a pro, in short order, Joshua faced - and defeated - top contenders Dillian Whyte, Dominic Breazeale and former long-time reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko. "I'm looking at Parker, he's a champion for a reason". "You've got two sides of it".

28, is a big 1/9 betting favourite with United Kingdom bookmakers ahead of facing New Zealander Parker in front of an expected crowd of 80,000.

But he insisted that, after several hours of press duties, he had to eat before heading off for another training session.

I have to make sure I stay focused on the job at hand. Now, when I look at him, I don't sense any doubt in him.

That was Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko, whom he beat at Wembley in April past year. I took everything I didn't know then into this camp.

"Takam was game, he was a lot shorter, he was in great shape".

"I know if I catch him clean, he's out".

"We're only focused on this fight".

The WBO heavyweight champion told Sky Sports: 'The All Blacks always do great here in Wales so I'm looking forward to keeping that record clean'.

The New Zealander's promoter David Higgins said: "It's a roll-over of a co-promotion deal, so major decisions will be jointly made".

He said: 'Klitschko's a great fighter and a great champion who we respect, but Klitschko's Klitschko.

"But he was a little older and I feel like I'm younger and sharper, and stronger". I'm here to be part of history and I'm not just doing it for myself, I'm doing it for my team, my family and my country.

"I'm going to beat him", smiled Parker, who looked like Kevin Costner in JFK in his light grey, three-piece suit and retro glasses. "These belts are mine". It's a fact that he has been dropped if not once, but many times in sparring. I will see how I feel on fight night.

But Rob McCracken, Joshua's trainer, countered by saying: "Being relaxed and comfortable preparing for fights like this doesn't do anything for what happens when you are in there facing Joshua".
