Britain's Anthony Joshua will meet Joseph Parker in a world heavyweight unification fight in Cardiff on 31 March.

Joshua, 28, holds the IBF and WBA belts, while New Zealander Parker is the WBO champion.

Very close now. It's hard to look past AJ here, but stranger things have happened.

I want this to set up a unification fight between AJ and Wilder, unfortunately I think Whyte will get to Wilder first, especially after that knockout of Browne.

AJ inside of 8 rounds for this.

Underestimating Parker could be a mistake

Two very likeable individuals who should provide value for money.

Parker to cause a major shock by knocking AJ out in the ninth round.

If Parker can go past the first 6 rounds, that's a fair bet.

Last round and Parker is doing just enough to lose..
I have AJ ahead by at least 5 rounds

A scruffy, untidy fight that did not get me out of my seat. Was Parker awkward to get at, was he holding on to Joshua too much or Joshua headlocking him too much or was the referee a bit too hasty at times in interfering? Still not sure what caused this to become a poor fight for twelve rounds.

More questions than answers, at the end of that fight.

AJ still got 15,000,000 reasons to do it though.

Definitely, but money will come to AJ regardless..I genuinely think he wants all the belts.
And after that performance, there are still question marks for me.

Was the referee hand picked by Eddie Hearn?

Smaller guys usually do better work on the inside, not allowed to happen.

Was a nice show of boxing, in my opinion. The ref was crap though. Joshua does well on the inside, so I'm not sure it was to Parker's disadvantage, but every time it looked to kick off, the ref got in the way.

Joshua did boxing 101 though, get behind the jab and use your range. I'd like to see a rematch at some point, because Parker looked a cut above all other AJ opponents, bar Klitschko.

Now onto Wilder.
