On Tuesday, January 16, in the United Kingdom, the fight between British Anthony Joshua and New Zealander Joseph Parker for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Heavyweight Super Championship, which will be held on March 31, in Cardiff, England, was officially presented.

Joshua, current WBA champion of the category and who also holds the IBF belt, affirmed that his key is to mix “intelligence with hard work”. In addition, the boxer referred to his fight against Klitschko: “With Klitschko, all those times it told me, it will take more than a human to stop me from where I’m destined to be, and that’s what I learned”.

On the other hand, Parker, current WBO champion, said: “This is probably going to be the hardest camp in terms of training the hardest, putting in the most work because I have a big challenge in front of me, Joshua”, and added: “I cannot wait to have this fight happen on March 31. Cannot wait to train, cannot wait to be back, to put on a great performance, hopefully catch him on the chin and knock him out”.

Without a doubt, this promises to be a great fight between undefeated boxers. Joshua has a record of 24 wins, 20 of them by knockout, while Parker has won 24 fights, 18 by knockout.
