These belts are mine - Parker confident of Joshua victory

Anthony Joshua has dismissed potential future fights against the likes of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, claiming he is exclusively focused on overcoming Joseph Parker this Saturday, live on talkSPORT.

Joshua is putting his International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association titles on the line against World Boxing Organisation champion Parker in front of an expected 78,000 sell-out crowd at the Principality Stadium. "I'm looking at Parker, he's a champion for a reason".

The camp of New Zealand boxer Joseph Parker continue to show their determination to ensure British rival Anthony Joshua does not dictate terms in the build-up to this weekend's world heavyweight title unification bout in Cardiff.

Joshua believes Parker could be deterred in one of two ways.

"I just saw reports that Eddie Hearn saying Joshua will retire before he fights me and if he does, I told y'all he was a s***house and he's afraid of the Gypsy King", Fury said. "You've got a cool, calm and collected unbeaten WBO champion who is genuinely relaxed and sleeping at night".

"He looks like a man under pressure", Higgins said. I don't know what my weight will be but I feel great. I've been working exclusively on my technique and ability.

Dublin City Council has confirmed no homeless families were staying in the hotel at the time. He added: "The situation is that the top seven floors of the hotel are now on fire".

Parker's task looks a daunting one given Joshua's impressive display to beat Wladimir Klitschko 12 months ago, but he remains positive about his own chances. I am not here for a payday, I am here to be part of history.

The Mancunian has lofty ambitions upon his return, stating on numerous occasions that he wishes to fight Anthony Joshua and win the belts back that he previously held.

"Everything behind the scenes in Team Parker seems calm, seems confident, and I'm expecting a very, very good fight".

"I think he has the best skill, the fastest hands of all the heavyweights and I will see if I have been dreaming or am proved right on Saturday night".

Mike Tyson used to like to be known as the baddest man on the planet, but Anthony Joshua has no plans to follow that route.
