Anthony Joshua lighter for 'dangerous' Joseph Parker fight

Anthony Joshua has admitted he would be interested in switching from boxing to the UFC

Joshua added: "I know where I am going with my career". It hasn't been like a Weight Watchers camp for three months.

Obviously if White is planning on making a splash with a boxing promotion, there may be no better way that by signing a fighter as talented as Joshua and then begin building him on an worldwide stage.

"Every fight and training camp has been something to learn from", he told Sky Sports. That is all we are saying, be realistic in negotiations. "If not, stop hooting and hollering because we'll just freeze him out".

"What we've got to offer is going to be 10 times more in terms of financials - because that's what it comes down to - than he's looking at in America".

Joshua has revealed he doesn't like "weird character" Parker and his "backstabbing" promotional team.

But he added: "I don't think it would be a distraction because this is probably one of the most important years of my career". I've been fortunate enough to do it 34 times now and it is something that I've missed.

"If he offered me 10 times more money to fight than what I am looking at in the United Kingdom, I would go there to fight him". We are doing the offering, he hasn't offered us.

It is reported that the UFC wants to become more heavily involved in the sport of boxing and the next step would be to lure Joshua away from Matchroom Boxing and promoter Eddie Hearn after successfully helping organise the much publicised Conor McGregor v Floyd Mayweather bout.

Hearn said: "I'd love to sit down and talk with him. I just know what it is like to be victorious, I know how to deal with a lot of distractions of being in an audience so big and how to entertain people", Joshua said. I believe it will be in 2018. "I think, technically, this is a tougher fight than Wilder".

Parker has 18 knockouts on his 24-fight unbeaten record, and Joshua is expecting a brutal bout. After some debate over his weight, Joshua has confirmed he intends to tip the scales lighter than for previous fights at "112kg max", or 17st 8lbs.

Joshua, who says "definitely there'll be blood", is set to come in at 112 kilograms (246 pounds), compared to the 115kg he weighed for his last fight - a 10-round win over late replacement Carlos Takam in October that made it 20 straight stoppages for the Londoner.
