Anthony Joshua afraid of fighting Deontay Wilder - Promoter Lou DiBella

Anthony Joshua afraid of fighting Deontay Wilder - Promoter Lou DiBella”

"I want to fight Joshua", the 25-year-old Aucklander said on Wednesday.

Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn might see a little irony in Parker's statement, given the Kiwi WBO world champion and his promoter David Higgins recently baulked at a "lowball" offer understood to be about 20 per cent of a potential purse. For Parker, who has watched with interest the rivalry building between WBC world champion Deontay Wilder and Joshua, the IBF and WBA title holder, it is a case of taking his shot while he can. "I want to test his chin", Parker said.

"Our message to the Joshua camp is yes, we will take the fight".

"Lucas Browne wouldn't be a keep busy fight".

"My message was Joe would fight Joshua next and Hearn's message was that Joshua would fight Parker next".

If the Joshua bout did not come off then Parker could fight unbeaten Australian Lucas Browne instead, Higgins said. "We have loosely agreed terms and principles. and it is possible if we decide it is the best option".

"Please don't fight AJ, you're going to take my $50million just like you done Stiverne".

"What we're saying is that Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua have signalled that they potentially fight next, as in March or April", he stated at a press conference at Duco headquarters.

Higgins labelled talk of a mid-year fight in Russian Federation against Alexander Povetkin as an "exciting and lucrative option".

Tyson Fury is close to a comeback, and is confident as hell as he has begged Deontay Wilder not to knockout Anthony Joshua who cost him £38million.

"Wilder's crew put a figure on the table that wasn't enough".

Barry said Parker would now enter a training camp in Auckland before heading back to Las Vegas in mid-January.

'I think Eddie is ducking me more so than Joshua, ' he told BBC Sport.

Barry said Joshua's recent 10th round win over Carlos Takam, a previous opponent of Parker, had confirmed their feelings of the big Brit's vulnerabilities. "I would like to fight him next".

"We're on it - we're on it - so either fight or shut up."
"He has a stamina problem, he can not knock you out with one punch, he has to put several big heavy punches together, he's very robotic, he doesn't have a very good selection of lead patterns".
