Anthony Joshua explains why opponent thinks he's got a glass chin

Parker's promoter David Higgins brought up Joshua's "weak chin", a theme they had highlighted during fight negotiations.

The IBF, WBA and IBO world champion Anthony Joshua has insisted that it will take more than a human to stop completing his destiny, as the Brit faced off against WBO champion Joseph Parker in the press conference for their world heavyweight title unification clash.

"What I have learned from those adversities and storms, it will take more than any human to stop me from this journey", Joshua 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 took my time last time out, but I got the win which is the most important thing.

"It's about making history now, we are always moving in that direction".

Joshua is aiming to see off the challenge of 26-year-old Parker before targeting a clash with American Deontay Wilder later in the year.

"People speak about me getting dropped.

That's what makes this such an exciting fight", Barry said.

Hearn, sitting next to Higgins at the press conference with Joshua just a short distance away, asked the Duco boss to refresh everyone's memory on what had been said.

Champ admits sledge went 'too far'

"Joshua is a big, powerful guy".

For the first time in his career Parker, who like Joshua has never tasted defeat, enters a fight as the rank outsider.

The winner-takes all contest will put the victor within touching distance of becoming the first undisputed Heavyweight champion of the world since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

"He may just walk in with me or he may just sit in the front and watch the fight".

"What I learnt from the amateurs is that I watched everyone and watching when you're not there is not the same". Every time I'm tested, and I know what I've paid to be voluntarily tested.

"I know my records are clean".

Barry spoke of the class of Joshua and emphasised Parker needed to pick up his game after unconvincing title defences against Razvan Cojanu and Hughie Fury. I had come out of a police cell the day I went up to training. "Joseph is quicker, has a better chin and is probably mentally tougher".

He added: 'So my challenge to my fighter Joseph Parker is I need this to be his greatest performance. "What shocked us is that in English boxing apparently that is not customary to do that".
