ANTHONY JOSHUA has slammed Joseph Parker and his group for his or her shock strategies in touchdown the unification battle.
The heavyweight pair collide March 31 for AJ’s WBA and IBF belts and the Kiwi’s WBO strap.
Parker’s group went to nice lengths to get the battle made, together with internet hosting a weird press convention to unveil a video itemizing Joshua’s alleged KOs and failings.
Joshua returns to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff – the place he beat Carlos Takam final day trip – and hit again on the stunt, explaining these alleged failings are pretend information.
Joshua stated: “I do not know the right way to take Parker and and his camp and what he has stated. I roll with the punches.
“Individuals talk about me getting dropped. I take advantage of it as a PR stunt.
“The 3 times I’ve been dropped or harm was the European championships, I used to be stopped.
“I had hardly educated, I used to be banned from Workforce GB for being in hassle, so I had not educated and I used to be stopped.

“The rumours you have are fake news.”
AJ was sparked into his loud defence after Parker’s promoter David Higgins said: “There has been talk in the build-up up so I want to clarify.
“I have a huge amount of respect for Anthony Joshua.
“In most countries in the world you analyse strength and weaknesses and what shocked us is that you don’t do that.
“We showed chinks in his armour and videos going around of him being dropped.
“People were shocked when we did. It was not personal. It was fact.”
Meanwhile, Parker had his say on his methods, claiming: “I met him once in Azerbaijan. I have watched him coming through and he’s a good fighter with a lot of support.
“I think this is my time and destiny. I truly feel I am going to win. I feel I have better speed and movement. I did not show in my last few fights.
“We are a team. I back my promoter and what he has said.
“This is an exciting time to be a heavyweight. I flew here with nothing signed but now it’s all sorted.
“This I’ll be the hardest camp because I have a big challenge.
“I have watched him for a long time, I know his strengths and weaknesses. And he thinks he knows mine. I can’t wait to knock him out.”
Parker also told the Daily Mail he hopes to have Tyson Fury walk him out for the fight in March.
The Kiwi said: “I might give [Fury] a text and say: ‘Bro, do you want to walk in with me?’
“He may just walk in with me or he may just sit in the front and watch the fight.
“But I know I have a lot of support from Tyson which is pretty awesome.”
Meanwhile, Fury himself has backed Parker to beat Joshua, thanks to his “fast hands” and “hard hits”.
The Gypsy King revealed: “If I’m honest I fancy Parker, and that’s being gospel.
“He’s young and ambitious, he’s got fast hands, he hits hard and he fights excellent against opponents who stand still and don’t move.
“Another thing is I’ve never met a Maori that ain’t tough – they’re all tough as teak.”
