Joseph Parker features in a spine-tingling television promotion for his world heavyweight unification fight against Anthony Joshua.

Anthony Joshua net worth: What are the boxing star's biggest payouts so far?

Both champions are putting their flawless unbeaten records on the line, along with three major world titles, and Joshua has given credit to the 26-year-old Parker for pursuing the fight at this stage of his career.

"When [Parker] throws his shots with a left and a right, if the left don't hit you, the right catches you as you are moving in and knocks the majority of his opponents out", Joshua told Sky Sports regarding his upcoming opponent for a segment posted to the network's website Tuesday.

"He got off the canvas to knock out former long-reigning heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, and nearly had his nose split in half when Carlos Takam head-butted him in his most recent outing last October".

Higgins believes that Joshua is making a mistake in overlooking Parker. With talks and reports on a potential fight being negotiated between the duo, Parker's promoter David Higgins feels "AJ" is underestimating his fighter and should do so only at his own risk. "I talk to Kevin and Joe most days and there is a calm, confident air. We're on the home straight and everything is on song". People don't know him if they say that. He knows he is the only one in the ropes and he is focused only on Anthony Joshua. "He's not talking about Deontay Wilder, he's focused on Anthony Joshua, and he knows what his job is - it is to beat Anthony Joshua".

Deontay Wilder poses with trainer Marc Breland after knocking out Luis Ortiz in the tenth round of their WBC Heavyweight Championship fight at Barclays Center in the Brooklyn Borough of New York City, March 3, 2018.

Anthony Joshua - who works with Under Armour as his official footwear, training and apparel partner - steps inside the ring to face Joseph Parker on March 31st.
