KEVIN BARRY, the trainer of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, believes Carlos Takam has exposed flaws in Anthony Joshua.

“His performance against Carlos Takam really puts everything into perspective now. A lot of people over the last 12 months have looked at Joseph’s performances and because we haven’t knocked the last couple of opponents out for various reasons have said Anthony Joshua would just walk across the ring and knock Joseph Parker out,” Barry claimed.

Parker scored a points victory over Takam while he was on the road towards his WBO title shot. The New Zealander’s trainer believes Takam was stopped too early against Joshua and maintains he has seen vulnerabilities in the IBF and WBA heavyweight titles after his latest fight.
