Joshua vs Parker Public Workout From Cardiff – On March 31st undefeated heavyweight world champions Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) and Joseph Parker (26-0, 18 KOs) put their belts on the line in a historic battle for the undisputed unified title at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in Wales.
Joshua spent the calendar year of 2017 securing his spot at the top of the heavyweight division. In April he took down revered former champion Wladimir Klitschko to grab the divisional torch in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium. He closed the year by selling out another soccer stadium in Cardiff for his defense against Carlos Takam. Joshua has set his sites on unifying the major heavyweight world titles in the coming calendar year.
Meanwhile, Parker grabbed the WBO belt and he has held it through several successful title defenses, including a win over Hughie Fury in the UK. Parker is out of New Zealand and at 26 years old and 24-0, he is looking for international respect.
Our man Marcelino Castillo was at the public workout for this event bringing you some footage of the action.
