Joshua goes the distance, beats Parker

Joseph Parker

Fury, the former lineal champion who owned all the belts that Joshua now boasts after snaring Parker's WBO version, had been strangely quiet in the leadup to the world heavyweight unification fight in Cardiff.

With Joshua earning a reported £15 million and Parker £7 million, this was easily the biggest fight of the beaten boxer's career.

Reacting to the outcome of the fight, Briton Lewis who was the last heavyweight boxer to hold the undisputed title, hailed Joshua for keeping things simple. I always tell people, when I'm in the ring, like I am the Bronze Bomber.

Joshua must fight any mandatory challengers and should he be unable to meet those demands, the bodies could strip him of his title. If you look through my record from my 21 fights, there hasn't been an issue with fighting anyone.

Hearn, speaking after Joshua's unanimous points defeat of Parker, said: "I will present the deal to Anthony but it has to be the right deal".

The demand for a matchup between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua has been high for some time now and it seems the fight may finally come to fruition.

"Whether that adds or detracts from the negotiating table when Eddie Hearn gets to America, I don't know, but it should be a factor".

John Paul Stevens for the NRA
Steven sharply criticized the Heller decision, which he wrote "has provided the N.R.A. with a propaganda weapon of huge power". In a separate tweet , Kasky said "responsible ownership of a small weapon" isn't something he opposes.

"When he got inside, the referee broke it up straight away and took that advantage away from us".

Across the Atlantic, Wilder was posting a video on Twitter minutes later, shouting into his phone: "Joshua?" He wants one. I always tell people that when I'm in the ring then I'm the "Bronze Bomber" and with him, it's so insane, I don't really care.

It also saw International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association champion Joshua add Parker's World Boxing Organisation belt to his collection.

Neither fighter was knocked down and Parker managed to avoid most of Joshua's big bombs, although he finished the fight with a cut around his left eye after catching an elbow in the 10th round. So I knew he was going to be determined.

"I think Wilder just knows that I've got the ideal style to beat him". "We have to sit down in the next two weeks and see if there's that fight in the summer". "He's completely lost his head and he's prepared to say or do anything to make the fight - other than actually try to make the fight".

Almost a stone lighter than in his last fight, against Takam, he moved with noticeably more nimbleness, in and out of range, and generally looked sharper.

"Ortiz was a challenging fight and the defining career win that I needed because he's a southpaw who made me have to think. I am the man".
