WBO title-holder Joseph Parker was bullishly confident in the lead up to this Saturday's heavyweight unification clash against Anthony Joshua at Wales' Principality Stadium.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the unbeaten New Zealander said:

”It’s great to be here, we’ve had a great build-up and a great camp. I can’t wait to put on a great display on March 31.

”I’m confident, sharp, and my movement is better than ever. I’m taking those belts back to New Zealand.

“Joshua is a great champion and we respect him and what he’s achieved. We love challenges. It’s whoever is going to put on the best display on fight night.

”It’s my time, I’m young, sharp and am determined to win. I’m here to be part of history, doing it for my team, family and country.

”I’m going to beat AJ, I haven’t decided how I will win. These belts are mine.”
