Anthony Joshua issues trap warning
Anthony Joshua has revealed that he will set “booby traps” which he hopes Joseph Parker will fall into during Saturday’s heavyweight unification title showdown.
The 28-year-old will be putting his WBA ‘Super’ and IBF belts on the line against fellow undefeated WBO champion, Parker, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
I hope Parker falls into my booby traps because I will set them up with some power traps as well. There’ll be a bit of a war.
Parker has warned Anthony Joshua that he is “ready to go to war” when the pair meet in the ring, while ‘AJ’ was staying cool when asked about the fight at a public workout in Cardiff on Wednesday night.
When told about the New Zealander’s war claim, Joshua said: “Yeah, its good news but it’s silly – it’s boxing.
“I’m hearing that all you need is a good chin and a right hand. We’ve been working on technique, finesse and counter punching.
“I hope Parker falls into my booby traps because I will set them up with some power traps as well. There’ll be a bit of a war.
“You’ll see blood, sweat and hopefully cheers from my corner.”
He added: “Physically, I’ve always tried to prepare myself the best way, but now I believe more and believe in my ability – I’m focused.
“It’s a boxing match and people respect clinical boxing and that should see me through to victory.”
