Joshua suggests that Parker does not deserve to be mentioned alongside other champion sportsmen and will not offer a gesture of appreciation after he delivers a first humbling loss to the 26-year-old.

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.

Anthony Joshua will meet Joseph Parker in a world heavyweight unification fight in Cardiff in March.

Although it's not official, the bout is expected to air on Showtime. So I don't know.it may be true maybe not.

"I'm delighted to get this fight made. champions should fight champions and AJ continues to step up to the challenges", Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said.

"I'm looking forward to it".

The last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was Lennox Lewis in 1999.

"These fights aren't easy because there's a lot on the line so respect to team Parker for taking the challenge".

"You never really can tell what sort of weight [Joshua is] going to be, but I know Joseph Parker will definitely be coming in a little lighter than he was for the Hughie Fury fight".

American Deontay Wilder holds the fourth belt in the heavyweight division.

Higgins was also pleased to get the fight done and complimented Hearn on the professionalism he showed through the arduous process. Who knows, if you are that big and that muscly there's something wrong.

"Joseph Parker is the absolute epitome of the Kiwi sporting battler. It certainly won't be a shock to me when he beats Anthony Joshua and takes his titles back home to New Zealand".

The comeback comes after Joshua mocked Parker's weight alongside United Kingdom talk show host Graham Norton last week.

He defended the title twice in underwhelming style a year ago, failing to knock out Romanian Razvan Cojanu and Briton Hughie Fury.
