WBO heavyweight titlist Joseph Parker could fight Anthony Joshua, the unified WBA and IBF champion, next, possibly in March or April 2018.

“I want to fight Joshua, he’s got a few belts, I have one belt. I want to test his chin,” Parker said.

Parker’s promoter David Higgins has opened the conversation with Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, and sounds encouraged. “It’s really down to the deal and money,” Higgins said. “Joseph Parker’s never been off his feet as an amateur or a professional or in sparring.
