Holyfield warns Joshua

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Boxing legend Evander Holyfield is talking up Joseph Parker's chances of beating Anthony Joshua.

Holyfield, the only four-time heavyweight world champion from a thrilling period through 1990-2001, attended Deontay Wilder's successful WBC title defence against Luis Ortiz in New York on Sunday and was quickly questioned about the current unification process. The first step towards that happens in Cardiff on March 1 when IBF and WBA champion Joshua and WBO champion Parker clash with all their belts on the line.

But Holyfield, 55, warned against forgetting New Zealander Parker. "Anthony Joshua is fighting this boy named Parker and Parker is a good fighter. He has fast hands and he hits just as hard as he (Joshua) does," Holyfield said.
