Anthony Joshua: 'David Price got better of me in sparring'

The freaky press conference, which was held by Parker's promotional team Duco Events, saw the WBO heavyweight champion's handler David Higgins claim that Joshua has "a glass jaw" and that "it's the worst kept secret in British boxing but no one really talks about too much".

Joshua will meet Parker at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on March 31 in a fight that sees four heavyweight title belts on the line.

Joshua, who is home favourite, will be defending his WBA and IBF belts, while Parker is putting his WBO strap on the line. I came out of a police cell the day before and went up there to spar.

"In most countries in the world it's customary in sport to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of each opponent", he said.

"That's what I learned: not to walk with sight, because when you're worn out you don't know where you are, I learned to walk with faith in this journey".

"I have vast respect for Joshua as does our team from his beginnings, to turn your life around to achieve was he has is a great role mode." said Higgins. 'I know his strengths, he knows mine, I know his weaknesses, he thinks he knows my weaknesses, I can't wait for this fight to happen on March 31, I can't wait to train hard, to be back to put on a great performance, hopefully catch him on the chin and knock him out'. But I didn't get dropped, I got stopped. 'It came as a surprise when we pointed out chinks in his armour.

'This is a really exciting fight and the heavyweight boxing division needs a fight like this.

GM hopes to produce autonomous vehicle by 2019
The new General Motors vehicle is the fourth generation of its driverless, all-electric Chevy Bolts , according to The Verge . They also won't have an owner since GM will deploy its self-driving vehicle for ride-hailing, not personal use.

Joshua's manager Eddie Hearn accused Parker's manager David Higgins of backing down over those claims, while Joshua accused Higgins of indulging in "publicity stunts".

"Do you know what I learned when I was dropped in the Klitschko fight?"

"Joshua has allegedly been dropped a few times and it shocked a few people". David Price is a puncher: [I had a] lack of experience.

"I'm looking forward to leaving [the UK] for a hard training camp", said Parker at a press conference on Tuesday. The rumours that you have heard are fake news, hand on heart. "So PR, whatever you want to use it for, that's between you and your camp". But this is a 50-50 fight.

While Higgins did most of the talking for Team Parker, the fighters largely showed respect and admiration for each - neither is known for extensive trash talk.

"Anthony Joshua is in for a huge shock", Parker said.
