Anthony Joshua: Joseph Parker promoter slams Joshua, admits receiving hate mail


Anthony Joshua is gearing up for a busy 2018

Joshua is aiming to unify all the world heavyweight titles in 2018, and he could fight three times, with bouts against Parker, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury all on the cards.

The 28-year-old is unbeaten from his 20 professional contests.

He already holds two of the four belts, having successfully defended the IBF and WBA versions against Carlos Takam in October.

But Higgins doesn’t get the hype surrounding the Watford-born pugilist and has admitted to getting some hate mail sent by Joshua’s supporters.

I’m getting hate mail from Joshua’s brainwashed fans asking me how I can demand that slice of the pie for Parker

“A lot of British fans have been brainwashed into thinking Joshua is the bullet-proof, unbeatable guy but he’s actually getting flattened all the time,” he told ESPN.

“It’s happened in numerous training camps and Wladimir Klitschko also flattened him.

“His media machine tells us he’s the next Lennox Lewis but he’s being flattened all the time and hasn’t even fought anywhere near the same standard of opposition.

“It’s a bubble that’s going to be burst.

“I’m getting hate mail from Joshua’s brainwashed fans asking me how I can demand that slice of the pie for Parker. 

“That disrespects that Joseph has been in this game for 20-something years.”
