Anthony Joshua warned Joseph Parker that it will take “more than a human” to defeat him ahead of their world heavyweight title unification clash.
In his reaction to Joseph Parker and his Promoter at the first press conference for their fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on March 31, said when you talk about myself getting dropped and what you have done, it’s a marketability strategy.
“When you want to talk about facts – the three times that I have been hurt or dropped was in the European Championships when McCracken knows I was actually banned from the GB team because I was still getting in trouble.
“I stopped boxing and two weeks before that European Championship, I was called up to the country. I was very unfit, I didn’t get dropped, I got stopped. When your tank is empty, it’s hard to perform.
“The second time was David Price. I had come out of a police cell the day I went up to training. I’m not going to use it as an excuse, but David Price is a puncher, and lack of experience.
“With Klitschko, all those times it told me, it will take more than a human to stop me from where I’m destined to be, and that’s what I learned.
“Not to walk with sight, because when you’re fatigued you don’t know where you are. I walk with faith in this journey.
In terms of using it as a PR stunt. The rumours that you have heard, they’re fake news. Hand on my heart. PR, whatever you want to use it for, is between you and your camp.”
