Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker - CompuBox Historical Review

By CompuBox

IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (last 6 fights) outlanded opponents better than 2-1 in total punches, jabs & power shots. Joshua landed 39% of his power shots and 6 jabs per round, while opponents landed just 25.3% of their power punches (3.8 per round more than half the heavyweight average).

Parker's (last 5 fights) numbers are below avg. in all categories (landed only 11.5% of his jabs), but he does have a solid body attack, as 39.1% of his landed punches are to the body of opponents (Joshua 20.1%- CompuBox avg.: 22.1%.).

Joshua and Parker lay four belts on the line in an historical night in the Welsh capital, and the clash of the two unbeaten Heavyweight rulers has grabbed the attention of the world’s premier TV broadcasters.

The main event heroes are on the biggest networks in their home nations with Sky Sports Box Office in Britain and Sky Arena in New Zealand and TV3 in Samoa and will captivate TV audiences in boxing mad nations in the US with Showtime, Canada and Germany with DAZN, SFR in France and Main Event in Australia.

Fight fans from Honduras to Holland, Panama to Poland and Finland to French Guyana will be able to witness the action live, and promoter Eddie Hearn believes the figures prove that AJ is the biggest draw in world sport.

“The incredible international TV sales for Saturday night’s event prove that Anthony Joshua is main man in the game,” said Hearn. “At 10.30pm on Saturday night, the attention of the sporting world will be focused on Principality Stadium as these two unbeaten giants put it all on the line – British boxing has never been in better shape and we’re proud to yet again make history with AJ.”
