Anthony Joshua has defeated Joseph Parker on points in the world heavyweight fight held late Saturday. The official cards of 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 to give Joshua 21-0 in his career.
Nigeria-born Joshua speaking to Sky Sports moments after the fight said, “I’m not going to make any analysis of my performance, that’s for my coach to do.
“My strategy was to stick behind the jab – it’s one of the most important weapons – a good jab will take you around the world. I was switched on, focused and went 12 rounds. It was light work. (Whether it’s) ten rounds, two rounds or 12 rounds.
“This was about boxing finesse – I stuck to my word. I know what it takes to be a champion. Joshua Parker said he wanted a war, but it was all about boxing finesse. The main thing we cannot forget is that I am the unified heavyweight champion of the world.
He was asked who he wants to face next and he responded, “IBO, WBO, WBA, IBF. I’m not into the hype, let’s get the business done. Let’s see what the future holds, I’m down for whatever, whenever.”
Pressed on whether he wants to face Deontay Wilder he said, “Wilder let’s go baby, let’s go!”
And when asked if he would fight in the United States to fight he responded, “I’m not interested in coming to America. All these years, we’ve gone to the States, people have spent a lot of money following British boxers over there. (But) we can do it in London, Cardiff. We are staying right here.
“I want Wilder. Or Fury. Get him (Wilder) in the ring and I’ll knock him spark out,” the BBC compiled.
