Duco Events have sent out a video of Anthony Joshua being dropped or shaken in a clear bid to shame the heavyweight champion into agreeing a unification with star fighter Joseph Parker.
The WBO title holder’s team have gone on the offensive since a 40% split was rejected by promoter Eddie Hearn and are now asking for 35% instead.
Staging a press conference to put their case to the world, Parker’s handler David Higgins released the following video before outlining why Parker has the better chin.
“Parker has a granite chin whereas Joshua may have a glass jaw,” said Duco. “Joshua has been dropped numerous times.
“It’s the worst keep secret in British boxing but no one really talks about too much. Perhaps it’s because Hearn and Joshua are quite powerful in the sport. It’s like the emperor’s new clothes.”
Duco then went on the list those featuring in the video.
“There’s no disrespect here as all footage is already in the public domain. The only thing disrespectful is Hearn and Joshua’s lowball offer.
“We are simply highlighting one of Joshua’s major weaknesses, namely his chin as those who have dropped Joshua include:
1. Lawrence Okolie
2. Mihai Nistor
3. Daniel Dubois
4. Wladimir Klitschko
5. David Price
6. Dillian Whyte
“We also believe there are more people who have dropped Joshua, so our first offer to UK fans is to send us proof that you also dropped Joshua and we’ll send you a gift.”
In contrast to Joshua, Duco say Parker has never been down throughout his career.
“Parker is the opposite to Joshua because he has granite chin and has never been dropped ever, as an amateur, a professional or in sparring,” they said.
“He’s has also beaten hard men like Carlos Takam and Andy Ruiz, so our second offer is to Anthony Joshua fans.
“Be the first to send us proof that Joseph Parker has been dropped and we will send you bank cheque for 10,000 British pounds and Joseph will match it with another 10,000
“Our job is to show British fans Joseph Parker is a genuine world champion, that Joshua cant unify without him.
“To Joshua, it’s for the opportunity to test his own chin and we’ll let you keep 65% of the profit so there are no excuses,” added Duco.
