UNDEFEATED heavyweight world champions Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker kicked off fight week with a tense face-off at the sprawling Sky Headquarters outside London as they approach Saturday’s heavyweight world championship unification live on Showtime from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

“I feel like this is what we have to do.  If champions don’t face off, then we won’t bring excitement to boxing, and I feel like we heavyweights are the flagbearers for the sport,” said Joshua.

Parker said: “I feel ready, confident and sharp.  I feel better than ever, and I’m taking these belts back to New Zealand.”
