Haye: Everyone Who Tries To Beat Joshua Ends Up Unconscious

By Luke Gardener, courtesy of The Daily Star

ANTHONY JOSHUA is an ‘absolute monster of a man’ and will put on a great boxing spectacle with Joseph Parker this weekend.

That’s the opinion of David Haye who believes the undefeated Brit will be very difficult to beat.

The former world champion has been letting Parker use his London-based gym ahead of the fight in Cardiff on Saturday.


"Everybody has an idea, everybody is confident that they have the key to beat Anthony Joshua, and every single person who has tried, has ended up unconscious," Haye told Sky Sports ahead of the mega fight.

"Twenty fights, twenty knockouts, and every single person going into the fight - they believed they had the key.

"He can't take a punch, or I'm too fast, or he's too slow. Everyone has got a reason why they believe they are going to win, but he seems to have the solutions, the answers to everybody, including Wladimir Klitschko, who once again said that he's got too much experience.

"When he lands his right hand he'll knock him out. It didn't happen. It landed, he put Joshua down. Joshua was able to get back up and show great recovery skills to come back and force an 11th-round stoppage.

"It's easy to say that from the outside, but when you're in there, Anthony Joshua is an absolute monster of a man. The reality of Anthony Joshua, once he starts punching the face, gets real pretty quick."

Haye also opened up on Parker and his preparations for the bout against Joshua and he thinks it is going to be a classic boxing bout.

"I've seen Joseph Parker in preparation for this huge, huge night at the weekend with Joshua, arguably the No 1 in the division," he explained.

"He seems cool, he seems calm, he seems focused. His weight looks good, his team are very comfortable. The gym is two minutes away.

"Everything behind the scenes in Team Parker seems calm, seems confident, and I'm expecting a very, very good fight."

Starsport will bring you complete coverage of Joshua vs Parker on Saturday evening with all the reaction to follow afterwards from the unification fight. Joshua vs Parker will be shown on Sky Box Office.

Getting hit repetitively implies the other guy throwing combos. AJ couldn't take Takam out with one shot power nor Klit. He doesnt have it! Mental weakness had nothing to do with range finding and more about limited movement from elbows…

[QUOTE=pollywog;18611135]How many combos did they land champ? How many has anyone landed against Parker? Parker hasn't been down because he can take the one got power shots but isn't there to be hit successively by combos. AJ needed a combo…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;18611080]Man, your delusion is off the scale. Parker is too good to get hit repetitively? Did you see how many times he got hit by that beached whale Ruiz and Takam? They were close fights for a reason.[/QUOTE] How many…

[QUOTE=pollywog;18609516]Parker is to good to get hit repetitively by a big banger. You don't become undefeated and never been down if you started boxing at age 4 and dont know how to avoid being hit by now. Takam on 2…
