Anthony Joshua (20-0, 10KO’s) is set to defend his WBA Super World Heavyweight Championship against Joseph Parker (24-0, 18KO’s). The fight will take place this Saturday, March 31st, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, and features a stacked undercard that has three more World Boxing Association title fights.
The betting lines are heavily favoring “AJ” but the New Zealand native Parker is a very live underdog in this fight. Parker has an accomplished corner and is undefeated as a professional while having an excellent pedigree.
Parker is coming off a big win over the previously undefeated Hughie Fury in September of 2017, as well as a close points victory over Andy Ruiz in December of 2016 – who was also undefeated at the time.
Joshua is coming off of two victories in 2017; a points win over Carlos Takam and a TKO victory over Wladimir Klitschko. His win over Klitschko was the choice for fight of the year for many boxing scribes.
Joshua figures to be the future of the heavyweight division but this is an great opportunity for him to prove it against a young, hungry, undefeated lion that knows his way around the ring. This is a great matchup that is bringing a lot of excitement to the heavyweight division.
