ANTHONY JOSHUA kept the media and Joseph Parker waiting for more than half an hour at their initial press conference back in January. “Running on AJ time,” we were told.
But today at the Sky Central offices in west London, there were no such delays and Parker’s threat to walk out of the press conference if Joshua dared waste his time again remained just that – a threat.
“Firstly, I would like to thank Anthony Joshua for being punctual today,” said Parker’s promoter David Higgins. “Secondly, I would like to let him and Eddie (Hearn, Joshua’s promoter) know I will not be taking any bait from them. Eddie is definitely the second best promoter in the world but it’s not about him and it’s not about me.
