Joseph Parker: Tyson Fury still a champion, he could ringwalk with me for Anthony Joshua

Joseph Parker is already stirring the pot in attempts to get in Anthony Joshua’s head, with his latest idea certain to be a controversial one.

The New Zealander has revealed he may want Tyson Fury to share his ring walk on March 31 as Parker bids to dethrone the former heavyweight king’s fiercest rival in Cardiff.

“I might give him a text and say: ‘Bro do you want to walk in with me?’,” Parker told The Daily Mail.

“He may just walk in with me or he may just sit in the front and watch the fight. But I know I have a lot of support from Tyson which is pretty awesome.”

On a potential future fight with Fury should he come out on top against Joshua, Parker added: “I still consider him a champion because he didn’t lose his belts to anyone and I think when he does come back, if I still have the belt or have a chance to fight him, I would love to fight him.”

Parker has already called Joshua ‘The King of Steroids’ in the build-up before being warned off the move as the pair begin to drum up interest ahead of ticket sales.

Over 70,000 tickets are expected to be sold for the massive top division unification as four versions of the world title go up for grabs ahead of a potential five-belt battle with Deontay Wilder in the summer.
