Sky Sports will broadcast the world heavyweight boxing match between unbeaten Anthony Joshua MBE and unbeaten Joseph Parker on Saturday 31 March 2018.
The WBA ‘super’ and IBF heavyweight champion Joshua, will be looking to add heavyweight champion Joseph Parker’s WBO belt to his collection, with both fighters battling to maintain their unbeaten run.
The match will take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, where Joshua won his last defence in October against Carlos Takam, after a 10th-round stoppage.
This will be Joshua’s second defence of the WBA belt he clinched by knocking out Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, whilst Parker will be launching his third defence of the WBO belt.
The fight has the makings of a stellar contest: both fighters boast unbeaten records, Joshua’s 20 victories all by knockout, and the New Zealander has 18 stoppages from his 24 wins.
Five matches are also scheduled to take place on the undercard including David Price vs Alexander Povetkin (12 Rounds Heavyweight), Ryan Burnett vs Yonfrez Parejo (WBA ‘Super’ Bantamweight Title), Joe Cordina vs Hakim Ben Ali (10 Rounds Lightweight), Josh Kelly vs Carlos Molina (10 Rounds Welterweight), and Anthony Crolla vs Edson Ramirez (10 Rounds Lightweight).
The event will be shown exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, but will also be made available to non-Sky customers via live streaming.
