The fight would see Parker put his WBO belt on the line while Joshua will put up the WBA and the IBF belts in an attempt to unify the heavyweight division at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on April 1 (NZ time).

Contracts are expected be signed and a statement will then be released by the fighters' respective promoters, Matchroom Boxing and Duco Events.

Parker's representative David Higgins has been in the United Kingdom since Monday to conclude negotiations and a news conference is expected next week.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has warned Tyson Fury that Anthony Joshua would "fight him in a heartbeat" and that he is ready to start negotiating a fight between the two of them. "It's heavy-handed. I've apologised and told them we were drunk".

"Let me tell you, that's a fight that we would sit down now and make for 2018". They truly believe they knock Anthony Joshua out. David Higgins has got a lot to say for himself, he's a amusing character, and Anthony Joshua doesn't like what Joseph Parker has been saying.

"I've already seen that he wants 60-40, Tyson Fury, which is not quite the idea that we have, but we are up for making the Tyson Fury fight".

"We have a hypothesis that Joshua is like the English football team".

"Joshua's pure aim is to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world".

"We need these belts, there is no secret, and they know that as well", he said.

"The Wilder fight is in dreamland at the moment, with his demands".

Warren said: "Realistically he needs about three or four fights very quickly".

The possibility of Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker taking place is almost a done deal, with both promotional and managerial parties set for discussions today to finalise the bout for March 31st.
