    Another man who hasn't given up hope of being world champion again is New Zealander Joseph Parker.

    The former WBO champion lost his belt to Anthony Joshua in 2018 and was also beaten by Dillian Whyte later that year.

    But he's won his last two bouts and is set to fight in Texas tonight as he eyes a return to the top.

    Parker said: “I have what it takes to be a world champion again. I know I can do it.

    “My goal is to be two-time world champion and the unified world champion. I’ve given myself three or four years and then I want to retire.

    “Four years to achieve it and if I can, amazing, but if I can’t, I know I gave it a good crack.”


    Deontay Wilder has spoken again after his battering by Tyson Fury.

    The American heavyweight released a 90-second video on Twitter overnight saying “the war has just begun”.

    Wilder added: ” You can't take my pride. I am a warrior. I am a King that will never give up. I am a King that will fight to the death.

    “Your King is in great spirits and we will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title. I will see you in a few months as the war has just begun.”


    Deontay Wilder has been told his only chance of beating Tyson Fury in a trilogy would be to work on speed.

    Wilder was decked twice as he was punched all over the ring against Fury before the fight was stopped by his assistant trainer Mark Breland in round seven.

    The beaten US star – who weighed in a career heaviest 16st 7lbs before the rematch – is adamant he will exercise his right to a third fight and challenge for his WBC title. 

    Fury’s promoter Frank Warren insisted the Bronze Bomber made a grave mistake by bulking up from from 15st 2lbs and believes his only chance for success in a trilogy bout is to lighten up.

    Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua was made to bark like a dog by comedy duo Ant and Dec in front of a shocked woman.

    The 30-year-old heavyweight superstar will feature on the duo's popular Saturday Night Takeaway show this weekend.

    Joshua took part in the “Get Out Of Me Ear!” sketch where the Geordie double act tell the featured celebrity what to say and do.

    AJ is filmed in his former amateur boxing club Finchley and appears to be greeting people as they enter the gym.



    Deontay Wilder was apparently so upset with his trainer's decision to throw in the towel that he left him outside the changing room in tears.

    Mark Breland decided his man had taken enough punishment from Tyson Fury in the seventh round, a decision that left Wilder incensed.

    And former British fighter Spencer Fearon claims Breland was refused entry to the dressing room.

    Fearon said: “Mark Breland did the right thing, I'm backing Mark Breland, a beautiful human being.

    “Mark Breland was outside the changing room crying, did you know that? 

    “He was crying because that man (Wilder) said he couldn't come in the changing room.”
