Anthony Joshua, moving toward the possibility of becoming the first unified heavyweight champion since countryman Lennox Lewis, agreed on Sunday to fight Joseph Parker on March 31 in Cardiff, Wales.

The 28-year-old said: "It will take more than any human to stop me on this journey".

In response, Higgins said: "I'll give you a concession, he's mentally tougher than most but he's not mentally tougher than Joseph Parker".

And the British star warned his rival that going into the trenches by climbing off the canvas to beat Wladimir Klitschcko at Wembley has seen him become too good to stop.

Whether the trash talk played any part in convincing Joshua to pursue the Parker fight before a clash with WBC title-holder Deontay Wilder remains unknown but confirmation arrived on Sunday that "AJ" and the undefeated Kiwi will do battle in Cardiff on March 31.

Parker responded by claiming it was his "destiny" to be in big fights such as these.

"I'm looking forward to leaving [the UK] for a hard training camp", said Parker at a press conference on Tuesday.

'Anthony Joshua is a big, strong, powerful guy.

He had explanations for the three occasions he had been hurt or stopped in fights and regarded all of them as important experiences.

"People have used me getting dropped by Klitschko as a PR stunt".

Joshua said it was an honour to be on the stage with another world champion and he will be in peak physical condition to handle any tactics thrown at him by the smaller but quicker Parker.

"I'll be in peak physical condition but I'm making sure my mind is in the right place as well, at all times". "I think there are some mental weaknesses on display. In terms of facts, I am willing to go through the storm". "But I know I have a lot of support from Tyson which is pretty awesome".

"I can't wait to be back to put in a great performance, hopefully catch him on the chin and knock him out".

He last fought in September 2017, out-pointing Britain's Hughie Fury to retain his WBO heavyweight title. "It's fair to ay he's probably a little stronger than Joe, he's won all his fights by knockout, has a considerable reach and height advantage over Joseph Parker".

"We are also with UKAD [UK Anti-Doping], through the BBB of C [British Boxing Board of Control], and that's 365-days-a-year, random whereabouts testing".

The 28-year-old, who holds the WBA and IBF versions of the crown, goes into the March 31 fight in Cardiff with a ideal 20-fight, 20-knock-out record.
