Anthony Joshua brands criticism from Joseph Parker's camp as 'fake news'

Anthony Joshua brands criticism from Joseph Parker's camp as 'fake news'

The trainer of New Zealand heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker has encouraged his WBO champion to embrace the challenge of a "career-defining" bout against Briton Anthony Joshua in March.

However, the IBF and WBA title holder has chose to talk about previous amateur defeats and the incident with Price, as well as insisting that his past history has made him a stronger fighter.

Both camps met for the first time at a press conference overnight (NZT) in London, where the British three-promotion champion wasted no time in interrupting Duco boss David Higgins upon first mention of his supposed "glass chin".

Joshua said he had be recalled late to the Great Britain team and was "very unfit" when he was dropped in the European championships - "I didn't get dropped, I was stopped".

2008 Olympic bronze medalist Price, who was a professional at the time, revealed past year that he left the Londoner flat on his back and requiring assistance from his trainers.

'The second time was with David Price, I came out of a police cell the day before and went up there to spar.

"Joseph Parker needs a career-defining fight - I believe Anthony Joshua got his career-defining fight when he fought Wladimir Klitschko, he was taken to places he'd never been before", Barry told reporters. "So I don't know it may be true maybe not", Parker said.

Parker is confident he can beat Joshua in Cardiff but knows that he has a challenging training camp ahead of him before the March fight.

"I still consider him a champion because he didn't lose his belts to anyone and I think when he does come back, if I still have the belt or have a chance to fight him, I would love to fight him", said Parker.

"But I got nicked on the way to training camp - for just trouble - and I got out Saturday".

"That's why I learned to not walk with sight, I walk with faith in this journey so in terms of you, using it as a PR stunt and the rumours you have heard, they are fake news", he added.

"I think he was just a phenomenal fighter". No, I'm joking. I know my records are clean. I wasn't able to display it in my last few fights. If I haven't been clean for my fights you'll see me struggle against Parker because anything I've taken would be out of my system.
