Eddie Hearn: We're ready to negotiate Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury bout

Parker flicks switch of an angry Anthony Joshua

Joshua's [20-0, 20 KOs] next fight is set to be against WBO champion Joseph Parker which is now being negotiated by Hearn and the New Zealand fighter's promoter David Higgins.

Joshua, 28, holds the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Association (WBA) belts, while Parker, 25, who will arrive in London this week, is the World Boxing Organization (WBO) champion.

The contract is expected to be signed and a statement will then be released by the fighters' respective promoters, Matchroom Boxing and Duco Events.

Joshua is expected to come face to face with the New Zealander next week, provided that talks go to plan, and they will resume a verbal battle which was sparked by a string of critical comments from Parker and Higgins.

"My man David Higgins - he's a bit nuts, David Higgins, but he's a good guy", Hearn told IFL.TV.

"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".

Tyson Fury's new trainer Ben Davison has warned Anthony Joshua he could find himself knocked "clean out" by his charge's "underrated" power. "It's not even in question for them", he told Sky Sports.

"Let's see if you're real".

Fury, 29, has been out of action for over two years and still has licensing issues to deal with as the former world champion bids to prove his fitness and mental state to the British Boxing Board of Control.

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

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

Joseph Parker has flicked the switch of an angry Anthony Joshua and fireworks are tipped for a press conference next week to announce their heavyweight unification fight.
