Joseph Parker issued weight target

Recommended Posts


Joseph Parker could weigh a stone lighter than Anthony Joshua as training plans are already in place for the WBO champion to bring a leaner physique into the potential heavyweight unification clash.

The New Zealander's promoter is flying into Britain to conclude negotiations for Parker to put his WBO belt on the line against Joshua, the WBA 'super' and IBF champion, at a British venue in either March or April.

Parker's long-term trainer Kevin Barry is already plotting preparations at a new facility in Las Vegas, including suitable sparring partners, and wants his fighter to be around 17 stone in comparison to Joshua, who was a career heaviest 18st 2lbs for his last win over Carlos Takam in October.

He will still be beaten to the punch AJ will be faster even carrying 20lbs +
