Damn it. Can’t get everything right. The official Joshua vs Parker poster was unveiled today and some rather quick off the mark fans have picked up on something rather obviously wrong about it.
When it comes to fight posters Matchroom to be fair are usually spot on. Not this time though lads.
Take a look at the official poster on Twitter here:
IT'S ON! ?

Who photoshopped Parker’s body to make him look a genuine challenge ??

Fucking hell that picture of @joeboxerparker hasn’t been photo shopped too much hahaha. Was that what was holding the deal up @EddieHearn making Parker look in shape for the promo board?

Photoshop editing skills aside, what a fight to look forward to though.
A unification in the heavyweight division has got the boxing public chomping at the bit and eagerly awaiting.
Parker is currently flying into the UK as we speak for what is expected to be a formal press conference tomorrow with him and Joshua present:
Early odds maker are making Joshua a strong favorite but don’t write Parker off entirely.
He’ll likely be in the shape of his life come March 31st.
