ANTHONY JOSHUA has not been lured right into a unification battle with Joseph Parker by the Kiwi’s weird press convention and assault on AJ’s chin.
Duco Occasions – Parker’s promoters – held an occasion on Tuesday to indicate a tin-pot video of AJ taking punches and admitting he was floored in one of many 1000’s of rounds he has sparred.
The hare-brained transfer was an effort to drive Josh and Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn to pay the small-fry fighter an enormous 35 per cent of their potential purse..
AJ offered 180,000 tickets for final two wars with Carlos Takam and Wladimir Klitschko whereas Parker managed to shift below eight,000 for his final two snorefests towards Hughie Fury and Razvan Cojanu.
Regardless of these one-sided figures, Staff Parker insist their WBO champ will get a fats slice of the monetary pie in addition to a slim probability of touchdown Joshua’s IBF and WBA belts.
And so they edited collectively a dodgy tape of footage attempting to indicate Joshua trying susceptible that has backfired.
Aiming a dig on the Duco boss, Hearn instructed Sky Sports activities: “You have to love this David Higgins – he’s completely off his swede.
“We’re getting nearer on a deal, however holding a press convention in a brush cabinet with a promotional video that appears prefer it’s been finished by my eight-year-old daughter is just not the one, when it comes to justifying your industrial worth.

“Negotiations are ongoing and we hope a deal could be reached.”
Higgins hit again immediately and gave Staff Joshua and Hearn an ultimatum to pay-up or transfer on.
Except their monetary calls for are met then Parker will settle for one other battle – with a excessive threat of dropping – presumably taking the WBO belt farther from AJ’s grasp.
Higgins stated: “What Eddie must be nervous about it’s Joshua’s chin, not our press convention. It is pathetic.”
“For those who really watched the press convention, what we stated was right, critical, and pure truth.

“Parker is unbeaten, he’s a world champion, and he deserves 35 per cent.
“They will pay us 35 per cent and not one per cent less, or we’ll take another fight, and we might lose, and they might fight [WBC champion Deontay] Wilder. So be the case.
“But I tell you this, Joseph Parker, his family, the trainer and me, we are united and we are adamant that’s the deal. Let’s make the fight.”
