WBO heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker does not think Deontay Wilder will get to face Anthony Joshua when he is done with the Brit.

The New Zealand man also hit out at TV presenter, Graham Norton, as he upped the tempo ahead of his fight against Joshua in Cardiff.

There has been talk of Wilder facing Joshua after their fight on March 31, with all four titles on the line, but Parker has laughed at the notion.

“I think my plans for the year are I fight Joshua and I beat him and then a re-match so that’s my plans for the year,” he told The Rock radio station.

Parker has also had another dig at Norton.

 

The TV talk-show host mocked the New Zealander’s physique when Joshua appeared on his show in January, but deep into camp, the Kiwi is ready to prove him wrong.

 

“Camp is going fantastic. I feel like I’m in great shape,” he said.

“When he (Graham Norton) called me the ‘King of Pies’, I’m going to take my shirt off at the weigh-in and honestly, see if I’ve been eating pies or not!

 

“I feel like I’m punching sharp, I’m moving well, making a lot of angles, movements, fitness is good, so everything is on track.”
