Parker sets his sights on AJ

Joseph Parker has confirmed that he would like a heavyweight unification title fight against Anthony Joshua following his majority points win against Hughie Fury on Saturday night.

The 25-year-old New Zealander retained his WBO belt with a win against Fury at the Manchester Arena.

Fury and his camp disputed the outcome as two judges' cards scored the fight 118-110 in favour of Parker, while one judge felt it was a draw at 114-114.

I feel every champion has their weaknesses and I feel I am the best. There's only one way to find out who is the best and that is to get together.

Fury's promoter Mick Hennessey confirmed that they would be lodging an appeal, but Parker is in no doubt that he was a worthy winner and is now setting his sights on his next opponent.

He hinted that a fight against the winner of the expected rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye could be on the cards, but he favours a showdown with reigning WBA and IBF champion Joshua.

Parker said: "Firstly I'm excited to be here fighting Hughie, getting a victory is a good way to establish ourselves here in the UK.

"I'm now looking forward to having those big fights – Joshua, Bellew, David Haye, there is Dillian Whyte calling me out, calling everyone out.

"I feel every champion has their weaknesses and I feel I am the best. There's only one way to find out who is the best and that is to get together.

"I will show you Joshua's weaknesses when I fight him."

Haye and Bellew's proposed December rematch is yet to be confirmed, but Haye is 4/11 to avenge his defeat in March, while Bellew is priced at 2/1 to come out on top for a second time.
