Joshua Beats Parker, Adds Third Title

Joshua Beats Parker, Adds Third Title

Parker had noticeably increased his work-rate, although Joshua still held control and he got a quickfire combination going at the end of round eight which ended a quiet spell for the British star. Better man on the day.

"[Deontay] Wilder or [Tyson] Fury, either one", Joshua replied.

The referee also intervened repeatedly, breaking up the fight whenever the fighting livened up and calling a time out in the ninth with Joshua returning to his corner to tighten up his gloves.

In the meantime, Hearn, Joshua's promoter, of Matchroom Sport, has tried unsuccessfully to pitch a fight between Wilder and WBC Silver champion Dillian Whyte. However, most of those rounds went to Joshua, as shown by the judge's scorecards.

He needed to get through the longest fight of his career to collect the third of the big four belts, though.

Anthony Joshua jokingly imitated Dillian Whyte when he was asked Saturday night who he wants to fight next.

"If they (Wilder's management) stepped up and were actually serious about the fight, and serious about a deal we are more than fair to offer them, it could happen next".

"I say my little prayer in the corner, I pray for success and I pray for his health and I pray he'll be safe once he leaves the ring", he said. I'm young, fit, strong and I didn't godown.

Joshua had weighed in at 17st 4lbs (110.4kgs) on Friday, well down from a career high of 18st 2lbs (115.5) against Carlos Takam last time out, while Parker came in at 16st 12lbs (102.3).

Crunching body shots from Parker slowed Joshua's stride in the seventh, although Joshua sparked to life in the eighth to land a searing left hand.

But Parker made some good connections in the fifth and there was a furious exchange early in the sixth, before Quartarone intervened. However, one man who was not buying into any of that was Tony Bellew, who was on the Sky Sports Box Office panel in Cardiff.

But a game Parker kept going and the boos at the end of the contest appeared to be aimed at the referee rather than the boxers.
