But the close proximity doesn't appear to bother Parker and when asked by Nelson how he sees the fight going down, the 26-year-old from south Auckland delivers a composed and confident response.

However Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has offered up a way for Fury to fast-track his way into the biggest fight in the heavyweight division.

But - as Fury nears his ring return - he has been linked with a move to Hearn's exciting stable of fighters that are given primetime shows on Sky Sports.

"I think my plans for the year are I fight Joshua and I beat him and then a rematch so that's my plans for the year", Parker told New Zealand radio station The Rock.

Hearn said there is no uncertainty about whether Joshua-Wilder would happen.

"You got to let him know in the prison - I come in peace".

It was a tactic which did not go down well with the Englishman but when asked how it felt to be sitting face-to-face with Parker having being called out so strongly, Joshua felt that had become irrelevant.

The fight is preceded by a host of high-profile heavyweight clashes with the likes of Joshua's former adversary Dillian Whyte and prospective future opponent Jarrell Miller both in action. I think he's talking to [other promoters] right now. "It's the biggest fight in world boxing".

Chin check - Parker reveals why he questioned Joshua's punch resistance in the past.

"No more excuses, no more waiting, no more dodging me.it's time".

The half-hour interview is sure to add to what is already a significant amount of hype around what is the first meeting of two undefeated heavyweight champions since 1987.

Hearn said Joshua will be heading to America for a fight in the next 12 months.
