“Lucas Browne wouldn’t be a keep busy fight. I rate him in the top five punchers in the division. If the business is right we fight Joshua. I want us to get in front of Joshua before somebody else takes him out,” Barry said
Parker, himself made his intentions very clear to the press, confirming that Joshua is his preferred option to face next.”Anthony Joshua [is who I want next], he’s got the belts. I want to test his chin,” Parker emphatically said.
Parker has now held the WBO world championship for almost a year, since winning the vacant title against Andy Ruiz in December 2016. He has since made two defences of that title against Răzvan Cojanu and Hughie Fury respectively. Parker has now begun his training camp in his native homeland in anticipation of his third world title defence.
