Hearn Says Whyte-Parker Winner May Get Title Shot

Hearn Says Whyte-Parker Winner May Get Title Shot

Joseph Parker has delivered a powerful statement about wanting to hurt Dillian Whyte with a relentless early attack in their heavyweight fight in London on Sunday.

Speaking after the Parker fight, AJ said: "I was always going to stick behind the jab, one of the most important weapons in boxing, and kept the right hand up. I want to smash him".

Trainer Kevin Barry said their time together had been reduced by nearly a week with Parker having to fly for 24 hours to the United Kingdom for the opening press conference and a further 10 hours onto Las Vegas. I'm here to punch with bad intentions.

"My opponent has been talking a lot of smack and I think sometimes smack talk is a sign of doubt".

Both fighters have only lost once and both of those losses were to Anthony Joshua.

"My message to Deontay Wilder - "Pull your head in, stop being greedy, and make the Joshua fight, otherwise the victor of Parker-Whyte is going to take your slot and you're going to sit on the shelf for another six months, and you might lose the opportunity all together".

"I hope he's ready to take punches because I will give them".

"We come here looking for redemption there is fire burning inside Joseph Parker's stomach at the moment", said Barry.

Parker pocketed around £6m for the Joshua fight and he could earn close to seven-figures for this weekend's clash.

"He thinks I can't go to war, we'll wait and see".

"This is a very tough fight for us but it's a fight we love".

Brixton's Whyte dismissed the claim, warning the former WBO champion that "if he comes to fight like he says, he gets knocked out". I'm ready to rock.

Whyte was not buying into the promise of violence.

After a seven-round triumph over him in December 2015, Joshua claimed that Whyte was "the flawless fight for this stage", and it was a victory that assured the British heavyweight title. "I know he wants to get to the top and to do that he has to go through Dillian Whyte". In future fights, when I leave the ring I won't be doing the same thing. "I'm going to box smart because that's what has got me here".

The fight at the sold-out O2 Arena will be screened live on Sky Sports pay per view from 5am on Sunday NZT.
