Anthony Joshua speaking to Sky Sports: “This was about boxing finesse – I stuck to my word. I know what it takes to be a champion. Joshua Parker said he wanted a war, but it was all about boxing finesse. The main thing we cannot forget is that I am the unified heavyweight champion of the world.”
Asked if he would fight in the United States: “I’m not interested in coming to America. All these years, we’ve gone to the States, people have spent a lot of money following British boxers over there. [But] we can do it in London, Cardiff. We are staying right here.
“I want Wilder. Or Fury. Get him [Wilder] in the ring and I’ll knock him spark out.”
Joseph Parker: “I want to go back and come back stronger. I have no regrets, we take it on the chin. We’ll be back again and we’ll work harder to come back. I would love to have another go.”
Asked if interruptions from the referee disrupted his tactics: “We could have worked inside more, we can’t change it. Of course, I’m young, fit and strong. I’m fit to go 12 rounds, thanks to all the New Zealanders here and back home. He [Anthony Joshua] is a good big man and was better on the day. We’ll be back.”
