Eddie Hearn: We're ready to negotiate Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury bout

Hearn held another meeting with Parker's promoter David Higgins on Wednesday, as they continued to discuss the remaining details of a deal for Joshua to put his WBA "super" and IBF heavyweight titles at stake against the WBO champion.

The fight is expected to be announced for the end of March in Cardiff's Principality Stadium if the final negotiations go according to plans.

However progress was made shortly before the new year, with Parker's co-promoter David Higgins revealing that his boxer had accepted between 30 to 35 per cent of the purse.

"His style in certain fights has been to box, minimise risks by not holding his feet and not drive through the shots but if he needs to and hits any heavyweight on the chin flush, he'll knock them clean out. It's not even in question for them", he told Sky Sports.

Parker's promoter, Davie Higgins, is now in England and seems to have finalised a deal with Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn.


"Let's see if you're real". Joshua also plans to challenge America's WBC holder Deontay Wilder.

"This could be the first time we've seen the switch of Anthony Joshua, and I'm excited to see it".

"AJ wants all the belts and Parker is the ideal fight, the flawless time", said Hearn.

"We need these belts, there is no secret, and they know that as well", he said. To do that he has to beat Parker and Wilder. "We are very close".

Talks have been quite amicable, meaning Parker was happy enough to make the long trip to the United Kingdom to take part in a press conference to confirm the fight early next week.
