Referee Selected For Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker

Referee Selected For Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker

Current WBA, IBF, and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is now scheduled to defend his heavyweight throne against WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker on March 31st from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Game plans will be crucial and it is thought Parker could be looking to box under a mobile game plan from Barry, moving and trying to outbox Joshua.

British boxing great Frank Bruno says Joseph Parker has the skills to make life hard for Anthony Joshua.

The Cardiff bout on April 1 will be his second world heavyweight title fight.

Bruno, a former heavyweight world champion, told Sky Sports, "Anthony Joshua has got the size, the power, and the skill - and Parker is a guy who comes to him all the time".

Bruno also advised Joshua about getting ahead of himself with the constant chatter of another unification fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder of the United States.

While Hearn has been doing a lot talking, Joshua has been largely silent.

While he was away, teammates wore red T-shirts with the slogan #LydiaStrong as a show of support for the Kimbrels. We believe that everything in life happens for a reason, even if we don't understand it at the time.

"I think he is just focused. If he just relaxes and uses Parker to come in, it is as simple as that".

Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker have earned the respect of British great Frank Bruno.

"He is a good guy Anthony Joshua, a very, very focused guy". They probably don't know what we are going to come in and do in the fight.

WBA "super" and IBF champion Joshua will square off with WBO king Parker on March 31 in an eagerly-awaited heavyweight showdown.

Barry said Parker is in good shape.

His most recent world title fight refereed came late a year ago in the lightweight women's world title fight between Ireland's Katie Taylor and America's Jessica McCaskill.
