Anthony Joshua's next fight looks like Joseph Parker

Joshua vs Parker close to being negotiated says Eddie Hearn 
22 November 2017

Anthony Joshua's next fight looks set to be against WBO champion Joseph Parker, and not Deontay Wilder as many thought.

Parker's team have recently made an offer to Joshua where a 35-65 per cent split in favour of Joshua for negotiations about a possible fight early next year.

During the press conference held by Parkers team a few weeks ago a promo video surfaced showing the weakness of Joshua's chin "You've got to love this David Higgins - he is absolutely off his swede," Hearn told Sky Sports.

"We are getting closer on a deal, but holding a press conference in a broom cupboard with a promotional video that looks like it's been done by my eight-year-old daughter is not the one, in terms of justifying your commercial value.

"What Eddie should be worried about it is Joshua's chin, not our press conference. It's pathetic.

David Higgins of Duco Events said "Parker is unbeaten, he's a world champion, and he deserves 35 per cent. They will pay us 35 per cent and not one per cent less, or we'll take another fight, and we might lose, and they might fight [WBC champion Deontay] Wilder. So be the case.

"But I tell you this, Joseph Parker, his family, the trainer and me, we are united and we are adamant that's the deal. Let's make the fight."
