Heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua is now a little over two weeks away from his unification showdown with WBO strap holder Joseph Parker.
Joshua comes into the fight a warm favourite but anyone who has followed Parker’s career will tell you, he’s not to be written off.
Particularly given the likelihood he will fight to a higher level never before seen in his pro career to date given the huge occasion and opportunity in front of him.
Joshua can’t afford to take his eye off the ball even for a second because if he does, a well trained Parker with a solid game plan under coach Kevin Barry could cause him all sorts of trouble.
Ahead of March 31st’s fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff Joshua has released this new promo video with Under Armour:

Typically if you look at the stars who Under Armour have sponsored and backed over the years in professional sport, they seldom get it wrong.
Time will tell if their bet on Joshua long-term works out or not.
Perhaps the answer to that won’t be known truly until he fights both Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
But kudos to him firstly for taking another unification against Parker next up.
In his short 20 fight pro career so far it can’t be argued that Joshua has been ducking anyone thus far, in fairness.
