Parker (24-0, 18KOs), who also beat Takam himself back in May 2016 via unanimous decision, first won his heavyweight title in a hard-fought majority decision victory over Andy Ruiz Jr. back in December 2016, and the WBO champion believes Joshua is in for a "huge shock" on March 31.
But Duco Boss Higgins said he didn't think Joshua does steroids and advised Parker to stay away from such claims. I think he trains very hard to the point of boring. Who knows, if you are that big and that musclelly there's something wrong.

Heavyweight boxing moved closer to having an undisputed world champion after it was announced Sunday that Britain's Anthony Joshua and New Zealand'sJoseph Parker will meet for a multiple title bout in Cardiff on March 31.
"They call me the king of pies but I call him the king of steroids". "I know we ruffled a few feathers along the way but, as Eddie acknowledged, when you come from a small country and people perceive you as a small player, sometimes you've got to make a bit of noise".
"I'm looking forward to it". "It's the first time in history that two reigning heavyweight world champions have met in Britain". So I don't know.it may be true maybe not.
Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, said he was delighted to finally settle on a deal for the bout. "A couple of months ago I heard him say "why should I be anxious about this little kid from New Zealand"?"
And the British heavyweight said he will refuse to shake Parker's hand even after the fight because of the undefeated New Zealander's outbursts against him.
He comfortably defended the crown for the first time against giant Romanian Razvan Cojanu in May.
The victor of the fight will take a step towards becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.
After 20 straight victories, all by knockout, Joshua hopes to take another step towards becoming the undisputed world heavyweight champion.
Parker's team believe they have goaded Joshua into taking the fight which will see the pair split a purse of about £25million.
"My entire existence is now devoted to proving what the boxing world already knows".
Joshua, the London 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion, unified the WBA and IBF titles with a dramatic and hard-fought win over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in April before retaining both belts against Carlos Takam in a late-stoppage win in Cardiff in October.
