In just over two weeks time, Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua will do battle for the unified WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight world titles.
It will be a far cry from where the New Zealander began his fighting career. But Parker is not daunted by the prospect of the biggest fight of his career or taking to the ring at The Principality Stadium in front of 80,000 fans.
“When you’re first starting off, you’re basically fighting in pubs. There were always little tournaments upstairs in pubs and the smoke from the bottom level would find its way up into the second,” said Parker.
