AJ-Parker 'getting closer'

Anthony Joshua is "getting closer" to a heavyweight world title unification fight with Joseph Parker, says promoter Eddie Hearn.

WBO champion Parker has made a "final offer" of a 35-65 per cent split in favour of Joshua and his promoter Hearn suggested that progress has been made in negotiations about a possible fight early next year.

But the Matchroom boss aimed a verbal dig at David Higgins of Duco Events, who guides Parker's career, after the New Zealander's most recent press conference included a video montage of Joshua being hurt in past fights.

"You've got to love this David Higgins - he is absolutely off his swede," Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports.

"We are getting closer on a deal, but holding a press conference in a broom cupboard with a promotional video that looks like it's been done by my eight-year-old daughter is not the one, in terms of justifying your commercial value.

"Negotiations are ongoing and we are hoping a deal can be reached."

I just read that Parker and his peeps are offering 65-35 Split, and Hearn ain’t taking it so far.
