Parker: I'll Make Tyson Fury Rich By Knocking Anthony Joshua Out!

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) has a very close relationship with former unified beltholder Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs).

Fury has picked Parker to scored a knockout victory over WBA, IBO, IBF world champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).

Fury announced on social media that he's willing to stake £5,000 on Parker scoring a knockout of Joshua in potential upcoming fight.


The Parker and Joshua camps are currently in negotiations for a showdown in the first quarter of 2018.

At the moment they are at odds on the money. Parker is willing to take a 35% split of the financial pot with 65% going to Joshua.

Even though Parker recently fought and beat Tyson's cousin Hughie, the two of them remain good friends.

Parker is hoping that Fury makes good on his promise to drop some big money on Joshua getting knocked out - if the unification fight is finalized.

"Hopefully he bets a lot of money, because I'll make him extra rich. Tyson is one of those guys that I respect," said Parker to Sky Sports. "I respected him before he was champion. I respect him as a champion and he's honestly a genuinely nice guy.

"We got along really well, so I have a lot of respect for him and his team. It was great to catch up after the fight, even though I was fighting his cousin. He offered a lot of good advice and even before meeting him and fighting in the UK, we exchanged a lot of messages on social media. He's always giving me advice and cheering me on, supporting me, so I'm really thankful for his support you know. That's why we respect him a lot."

Although the two of them are friends, that wouldn't prevent a potential fight in the future if the money makes sense.

"If it makes sense for both of us, and it's something that we both want, then we can make it happen," said Parker.

"He's a true champion that I respect, but I respect myself and what I can do in the ring. If it makes sense for us both, there is no reason why we shouldn't get it on. I would love to see him return."
