Parker Promoter: More People Contacted Us About Joshua's Chin

WBO champion Joseph Parker’s promoter, David Higgings of Duco Events, is shaking his head at the recent comments from Eddie Hearn, the promoter for WBA, IBO, IBF champion.

According to Higgins, Hearn's position of a 75-25 percent split of revenue in Joshua’s favour for a potential blockbuster unification bout in 2018 would be “undervaluing” Parker.

“We’ve said all along that a 35-65 percent was both fair - and our bottom line,” Higgins said. "Now it seems that Eddie is pretty close to agreeing with us. That’s very encouraging.”

Higgins held a press conference on Wednesday with the New Zealand press - where they showed a video with clips of Joshua being hurt in some of his fights and interview footage where numerous fighters claimed to have dropped Joshua in sparring or the amateurs.

The footage was part of Higgins' campaign that Joshua has a "glass chin."

He claims that more fighters have reached out to him, willing to provide additional proof of Joshua possessing a questionable chin.

“We’ve actually had another two more people contact us in the last 24 hours saying they have also footage of A.J. being flattened,” Higgins said.

“That brings the total to seven. We’re still looking into these latest claims, but they do seem credible. It’s no wonder Glass Jaw Joshua doesn’t want to take a chance on getting in the ring with Joseph Parker – a genuine world champion who has never been knocked down at any level in his life.”

Higgins reiterated that an offer of a £20,000 bounty for anyone who could produce evidence of Parker having been dropped at any time during his career - pros or amateurs or in sparring - still stood.

“We’ve put a sizeable bounty out there for anyone who can produce evidence that Joseph Parker has ever been knocked down, and we haven’t heard boo from anybody. That offer still stands, by the way,” Higgins said.

Higgins was in his right in doing this. A 25% split is a slap in the face.

I'm sorry that you took such a personal offense to a conversation between myself and someone else. Let me try to rectify my own personal opinion for you. I've watched boxing for nearly 30 years. Been to over 100 fights.…

[QUOTE=keith_head;18242832]Whyte is not even top 20 let alone top 10. To be fair, neither was the Stiverne that we just saw. They're roughtly third tier - Joshua, Wilder, Parker, Povetkin, Pulev, Ortiz are the top tier, having each at least…
