Anthony Joshua will face off with Joseph Parker on the 31st March 2018. They will fight in the Principality Staduim in Cardiff, Wales. Joshua has had twenty fights and won every single one by knock out. Parker has had twenty four fights and has won all of them, winning by knock out in 18 of them. Joshua will be putting all three of his titles on the line (the IBF, WBA (super), IBO) whereas Parker will be putting his only title on the line (WBO).
Joshua wanted to fight Parker as it is his chance to combine four titles. However Parker has a good opportunity as if he gets an upset win against Joshua He will have all four titles.
On this card there are also six other fights including Alexander Polvetkin vs David Prince, Ryan Burnett vs Yonfrez Parejo and Josh Kelly vs Carlos Molina.
I asked the general public who they think would win and on average the public said that they thought that Joshua would win by knock out. But some people did say that Joshua would win by decision which would end Joshua’s undefeated reign of the super heavyweight division. One other person said that they thought that Parker would win by decision.
Once the event has finished, the question is, what will Joshua and Parker want to do? Joshua will probably want to go on to fight Deontay Wilder because of their altercation on twitter and Wilder’s comments after fights calling out Joshua. Parker may go on to fight Lucas Browne as when the fight hadn’t been confirmed, Parker’s teams backup to the Joshua fight was to set up a fight with Browne.
Now we have sixteen days until the fight, Joshua has a 1/6 betting odds whereas Parker have a 1/13. Who do you think will win?
