I can knock Joshua out in Cardiff - Parker

A boy throws a punch towards Anthony Joshua as the professional boxer leads the session

Joshua weighed in at his heaviest ever in wins against Wladimir Klitschko (17st 12lbs) and Carlos Takam (18st 2lbs) a year ago but could drop some mass before facing Joseph Parker in a world heavyweight title unifier on March 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

WBO world champion Joseph Parker.

"I can't see him coming in more than 111.5kg or 112kg, maybe he will be even lighter", Hearn told Sky Sports.

Speaking exclusively on Drive, the Jamaican-born fighter said: "Parker will come to fight but I believe what he brings to the table will work right into AJ's hands".

"He feels incredible. I was on FaceTime with him and he got on the scales - he was 17st 7lbs on Sunday night". I can outbox him.

Hearn explained: "Anything could happen - Jarrell Miller could be beaten [by Johann Duhaupas], we might fight Deontay Wilder next, the WBA might call their mandatory".

"We're fighting in his backyard and we're fighting another champion who's undefeated".

"I think Anthony has got a great fight, a great future".

Parker's trainer Kevin Barry is equally confident his man can beat Joshua when the two boxers put their unbeaten records on the line.

Asian Stocks Slip but Losses Restrained
Some of Wednesday's drop was because of a slide in the price of oil, which sent energy stocks to the market's sharpest losses. Wednesday was another down day for the broad US markets with all three of the major exchanges closing lower on the day.

"He wins the fight with speed and movement".

Joshua, the WBA and IBO belt holder, tipped the scales at a career high 18st 2lbs for his fight against Carlos Takam past year, which he won in the tenth round. So far, this is the best camp he's had. He is very durable.

Along with Joshua's likely advantage in the power stakes, much has been made of how Parker will perform on such a huge stage.

"AJ" is the heavy favourite for many leading up to the fight but Parker has not been completely written off either as he is more than capable of causing a major upset.

It was an assertion backed up by Barry, who dismissed any suggestion his charge would be adversely affected under the bright lights.

"I like that [prospective] fight", Hagler said when asked about Joshua and Wilder.

"From the day after his Takam fight, all he has been thinking about is how he can improve, get a bit leaner, improve the jab, improve the footwork".

"He just knows how he to come forward and he hasn't got real power and good defence which is going to be a problem".
