The heavyweight championship of the world, even in this crazy world we live in these days in 2018, still means something.
It used to be known as the greatest prize in all of sport and maybe, just maybe, with the way things are going in boxing once again, it can be that once more.
For the first time in a long, long time, the heavyweight division is genuinely interesting with three champions at the top.
All undefeated in the form of Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker.
Add to this mix former champion Tyson Fury too of course, who’s impending return to the sport will make this boiling pot of heavyweight power that bit more interesting.
Two weeks today two of the above names and current champions will collide in Wales on March 31st – this new promo video sets the scene beautifully:

While Joshua comes into the fight as a favourite, WBO champion Parker cannot be underestimated.
He’s come too far and worked too hard in his career not to give absolutely everything on the night and genuinely try to win.
His trainer Kevin Barry will have him in tip-top shape over these past few weeks and months out in Las Vegas, and will have installed a shrewd strategy that he will make sure his charge follows to the letter of the law.
Two weeks today and heavyweight bonanza season is once again upon us in boxing.
Bring it on.
