Anthony Joshua vows: I will outclass Joseph Parker and break his will

Adam Smith and Johnny Nelson celebrate the RTS award for best sports programme

"He (Parker) hasn't had as many fights as Joshua and for him this is a defining fight but I think it will be one of Anthony Joshua's hardest so far".

Last April, Joshua produced the performance of his career to add the WBA title to his IBF crown with an enthralling knockout win over former unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.

With the addition of Joshua vs. Parker, SHOWTIME will televise all four of the Heavyweight World titles in the same month as undefeated American Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) will defend his WBC belt against unbeaten Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) on Saturday, March 3 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"But let's say I've got 20 quid (pounds) in my pocket and I'm looking at Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua".

The 2012 Olympic champion was equally certain he would emerge triumphant, portraying Parker as another step in his own life journey and not even the toughest opponent.

He said: "1000 per cent it is one fight at a time".

Britain's Anthony Joshua is overhyped and set for a major upset in Saturday's heavyweight unification fight, insists his opponent Joseph Parker.

"It's why I'll always respect Klitschko and why I'm glad he lost to me because I gave him the respect he deserves". I'm young, I'm fast, I'm strong.

If we do have a stormy day a week from this Thursday , that would potentially set up for a pleasant Easter Weekend.we'll see. Starting next week on Monday , the rain chances will remain at 20%, but then by Tuesday , the rain chances go up to 30%.

Parker was also in confident mood, admitting that he was yet to make up his mind about how he was going to defeat the home favourite this weekend.

"We've trained hard for this fight, prepared and like I said, I am confident". I'm punching hard, I'm punching with way more speed so I'm looking to put on a display.

New Zealand's biggest fight since David Tua fought Lennox Lewis in 2000 and the most anticipated sporting event since the 2015 World Cup final is just days away. I am not here for a payday, I am here to be part of history.

Ahead of Saturday's fight night, we look at how the champions compare, TV information, predictions and betting odds.

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

"Twenty fights, twenty knockouts, and every single person going into the fight - they believed they had the key".

To ease you through these times, Stuff has provided you with this All You Need To Know guide, so that you get the facts worth knowing and won't miss a thing between now and Sunday morning's fight. We love challenges, we see him as a big challenge which is the reason we want to fight him.
