Joshua tells Wilder to be 'realistic' in negotiations

Joshua tells Wilder to be 'realistic' in negotiations

Joshua is aiming to overcome WBO champ Joseph Parker in another unification fight in Cardiff next week first, but there is no doubt who he wants to face next.

"I've seen some of the emails that Parker's manager sent Eddie (Hearn, Joshua's promoter) and they say some really backstabbing things, but in your face they shake your hand and that's not my type at all".

Joshua's immediate concern is Parker, an unbeaten professional of 24 fights.

"I can't tell you exactly how the fight will go, but we're big, we're strong, and the punches do hurt after a while", Joshua told Sky Sports News.

"I definitely know there'll be blood".

"Let's say for instance - Parker's Holyfield, and I'm Riddick Bowe, the taller, rangier fighter".

According to a report from the Telegraph in the United Kingdom, White is interested in inking heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to a multi-fight, multi-million dollar contract to bring him under the UFC umbrella.

The 28-year-old also warned Parker that he is a "different animal". "I wouldn't make weight the main factor of what I've been working on in this camp".

The two monsters have been trading blows publicly for months but as yet no serious negotiations between their camps have taken place.

"I've been working on technique and stuff like that, rather than worrying so much about my weight". That's added pressure. I don't think he feels it though. If not, (he should) stop hooting and hollering because we'll just freeze him out.

"Everybody will be looking at the scales".

Obviously if White is planning on making a splash with a boxing promotion, there may be no better way that by signing a fighter as talented as Joshua and then begin building him on an worldwide stage. He is faster on his feet. "There are rumours that Parker has been injured for the past two or three fights but now is injury-free and looks unbelievable in training".
