Joseph Parker laughs off opening offer for Anthony Joshua fight

After receiving a low offer, Joseph Parker's promoter says he has "pretty much given up" on the Anthony Joshua fight.

According to Parker's promoter, Matchroom Promoter Eddie Hearn made a "Ridiculously Low offer", in a fight that will see a unification bout of the heavyweight championship belts. The WBO heavyweight champion Parker, had a press conference last week and issued a challenge to Joshua. A 40-60 split in favour of Joshua was offered by the team, but nothing yet has Materialised.

"I got this weird email from Eddie's email address, but he must have been hacked," Higgins exclusively told Sky Sports. "He made the most ridiculously low offer. It could have been the most insulting offer in boxing history.

"To expect 40 per cent is actually quite reasonable, because you have earned it, and it's a unification.

"Of course I have mentioned it [to Joseph Parker] and he just laughed like I did.

"I'm not going to reply, because I don't think it was Eddie Hearn. I reckon someone hacked his account, it was a scam. I reckon Eddie respects boxing and I reckon Anthony Joshua wouldn't want to insult Joseph Parker.
