Joshua (20-0) is undefeated in his professional boxing career. The Ring has the Great Britain native listed as the world’s best active heavyweights. He captured the IBF heavyweight championship in 2016 when he knocked out Charles Martin in the second round. The 28-year-old has gone on to defend that title an impressive four times.
On the other side of the table is New Zealand’s Parker (24-0). He is a true test for Joshua, as he also holds an undefeated record. But one might say that he has not faced the level of competition that the Brit has. Parker fought twice in 2017, earning decision victories over Razvan Cojanu and Hughie Fury.
