Eddie Hearn really laid into Joseph Parker's promoter at press conference

New Zealand heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker has looked out of character as the bad guy in the heavyweight divisions

Anthony Joshua laughed off jibes that he has a glass jaw as "fake news" as he met his next opponent Joseph Parker in London - and insisted that he more than proved his mettle by climbing off the canvas to defeat former champion Wladimir Klitschko past year.

"I can not wait to have this fight happen on 31 March".

Parker has triumphed in all of his 24 professional fights, winning 18 by knockout. AJ revealed on Tuesday that he headed to that session having "come out of a police cell".

And the British star warned his rival that going into the trenches by climbing off the canvas to beat Wladimir Klitschcko at Wembley has seen him become too good to stop.

"With Klitschko, all those times it told me, it will take more than a human to stop me from where I'm destined to be, and that's what I learnt". I walk with faith in this journey.

"It's about making history now, we are always moving in that direction".

'When you want to talk about facts - the three times that I have been hurt or dropped was in the European Championships when McCracken knows I was actually banned from the GB team, because I was still getting in trouble.

"In terms of what's been said, I take it with a pinch of salt and roll with the punches".

"I met Joshua once in Azerbaijan [at the amateur World Championships in 2011] when we were amateurs and I've been studying him ever since then".

Parker responded by claiming it was his "destiny" to be in big fights such as these.

'When you talk about myself getting dropped and what you done, it's a marketability strategy, ' said Joshua.

Parker's trainer Kevin Barry did admit, however, that his fighter would need to produce the "greatest performance" of his career to emerge victorious.

"Anthony Joshua is in for a huge shock", Parker said. It's fair to say he's probably a little stronger than Joe. "Can not wait to train, can not wait to be back, to put on a great performance, hopefully catch him on the chin and knock him out". You'll find out this fight whether I am the super-human or I've got something pushes on this super-human power he says I have.

Parker doesn't bring his A-game it's going to be a very hard night.
