Joshua-Parker: Joseph Parker shows speed and mobility in training camp

Joseph Parker will be unifying heavyweight titles with Anthony Joshua at the end of the month.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

As WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker prepares for his March 31st title unification with Anthony Joshua, Fight Hub TV is able to capture some footage of Parker’s training camp.

In the video above Parker can be seen working on his speed, accuracy, and mobility as he hopes to upset the apple cart by dethroning Joshua and stamping his claim as the best heavyweight in the division.

Parker’s trainer, Kevin Barry, also took some time to chat with Fight Hub about the upcoming showdown and admits that they’ll have to put it all on the line in a performance he thinks Parker will be remembered for.

“Right at the moment it’s very important that we actually start putting [our game plan] in place. And when I say putting it in place, it’s not just working with me on the pads — it’s actually inspiring him.

“This is our fourth week of sparring, he’s starting to really click. We’re doing some nice rounds and our game plan, he’s starting to adopt very well. So everything we’ve trained to do is coming into place at the moment.”
