Joshua Promoter: No Offers From Team Parker, Only Tweets

A few days ago, Joseph Parker's promoter was furious after receiving a "ridiculously low offer" from Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn.

According to David Higgins, promoter for WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs), he was shocked at the "low" offer that was presented to him from Hearn, who promotes IBF, IBO, WBA world champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).

Higgins had recently stated that Parker was prepared to face Joshua on UK soil if the offer was at least 60-40 in the British star's favor.

But Higgins reveals that Hearn emailed over an offer that was so low that he initially felt the British promoter's email was hacked.

Higgins has claimed in the past that Hearn was presenting an 80-20 offer in his boxer's favor.

"I got this weird email from Eddie's email address, but he must have been hacked," Higgins exclusively told Sky Sports. "He made the most ridiculously low offer. It could have been the most insulting offer in boxing history. To expect 40 percent is actually quite reasonable, because you have earned it, and it's a unification.

"Of course I have mentioned it [to Joseph Parker] and he just laughed like I did. I'm not going to reply, because I don't think it was Eddie Hearn. I reckon someone hacked his account, it was a scam. I reckon Eddie respects boxing and I reckon Anthony Joshua wouldn't want to insult Joseph Parker. Joseph has worked his way from the ground up and earned the right. Joshua, I think, would understand and respect that, so it can't possibly be AJ or Eddie that made the offer. It must be an email hack."

Then Parker took to social media, and claimed that Joshua offered him 50% less than what was offered to heavyweight champion Charles Martin for his 2016 bout with Joshua.

But Hearn claims that Parker has been given wrong information and there have been no counter-offers from his promoter.

"I'm not sure what Parker was told, but his tweet was incorrect," Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports. "They haven't even replied to my offer, other than via tweets. We are not interested in the he said, she said. If they want to make the fight, then they should come off social media and pick up the phone."

"I'm encouraging them to open dialogue to see if we can find middle ground. We have spoken [on Wednesday] and made our positions clear. There isn't middle ground at the moment but that can change. This is a fight we want."

Hearn and AJ hold all the cards, financially and promotionally, at the moment. They know they have all the leverage and are trying to low ball the crap outer Parker. There is NO ONE at the moment who can make…
