ANTHONY JOSHUA has accused Joseph Parker and his promoter of “acting” and warned his rival he has already begun preparations for their expected heavyweight unification title fight.

The IBF and WBA champion hopes terms will soon be agreed with WBO titlist Parker for a fight, potentially at London’s 02 Arena, early next year so that he can begin his training camp in the first week of January.

Joshua, 28, wants to fight three times in 2018 and most recently has seen the unorthodox video made by the New Zealander and his eccentric promoter David Higgins in which he is goaded for supposedly having a “glass jaw”.
