Who are we picking as our Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker Victory Method Tip? The big fight takes place on Saturday 31st March 2018.
London 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight gold medalist Anthony Joshua currently holds the heavyweight IBF, WBA (Super), and IBO belts. Joshua is fighting New Zealander Joseph Parker, in a bid to win Parker’s WBO heavyweight title (of course if Parker wins he will keep his belt, and get all of Joshua’s). This is an important fight for Joshua, as should the Briton win the WBO belt, he only needs one more belt to achieve greatness. He will likely be looking to put all his belts on the line, to try and add the WBC heavyweight belt to his collection. This would mean potential 2018 SPOTY contender Joshua would become the 1st undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world since British-Canadian boxer Lennox Lewis.
On the face of it, both boxers have great records as neither of them has ever lost a fight. Their combined record coming into this bout is 44 wins and 0 losses!!!
- Joshua’s record is 20-0 (all 20 of his wins have been by knockout or technical knockout)
- Parker’s record is 24-0 (18 of his wins have been by knockout, including 1 retirement)
However, not only has Anthony Joshua’s defeated every single opponent faced by knockout (or technical knockout), the calibre of the opposition he has faced is immensely superior (including Vladimir Klistchko).
We can only see one winner of this fight. We don’t normally recommend massive odds-on bets, but for our Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker Victory Method Tip we think the 1/4 on offer at Sun Bets (odds checked: 8th February 2018 – odds may change at any time) on Anthony Joshua to win by KO, TKO, or DQ (Knockout, Technical Knockout, Disqualification) is as close to a banker as you can get in sport!
