Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker heavyweight unification fight confirmed for March

The victor of the clash is likely to face WBC champion Deontay Wilder in another unification bout this summer.

Joshua is 20-0 and Parker 24-0. My entire existence is now devoted to proving what the boxing world already knows'.

"I like to fight, that's the main objective, and it's showing I'm never shy of a competition", Joshua said.

To avoid the mind games I'd expect him to switch off from what they say about him completely.

The American, whose three-year reign as champion is the longest in the division, wants a fight with Joshua, calling the British Olympic gold medal victor out after beating Bermane Stiverne in November. Joshua's promoters Matchroom Boxing confirmed the deal on Sunday, concluding weeks of fractious negotiations between the two sides.
