Parker's Coach: We exposed Joshua's chin, UK media afraid to cover!

By Ryan Burton

Team Joseph Parker cannot wait to get WBA/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in the ring. A date in late March in Cardiff, Wales is being targeted for the first heavyweight unification bout since Wladimir Klitschko faced David Haye six years ago.

Parker's co-promoter David Higgins recently held a press conference where a video showing Joshua getting knocked down and interviews from fighters claiming to have knocked down the Olympic gold medalist. recently spoke to Parker's trainer Kevin Barry who is currently in New Zealand as they await word that the fight will be finalized. He is very confident that his fighter, who holds the WBO title, would be the last man standing if and when they do meet in the ring.

"We have exposed Joshua's chin. Everyone has always known the stories of him being KO'd in the amateurs. He was knocked out by Dillian Whyte. He was knocked out by (Mihai) Nistor in the amateurs. There are stories coming out of his training camps. Most training camps he gets dropped. The last training camp apparently Robert Helenius had him down. We know Daniel Dubois a 2-0 pro had him down and Lawrence Okolie another amateur had him down," Barry told

Barry believes that the media in the United Kingdom is choosing not report on Joshua's lack of chin because they will be denied access to the champion. While he acknowledges Joshua is a great fighter, he believes the media is making him out to be better than he really is.

"We are exposing a story that the UK media have chosen not to write about. They want to write about this unbeatable Anthony Joshua. We know that he has got a dodgy chin," Barry said.

"There are two things that you know about boxing and two things that you need. You need to be able to give a punch and to be able to take a punch and we know that both Joshua and Parker can deliver a punch but I also know that Parker has never been down in his amateur career. He has never been down in his professional career. He has never been down in hundreds and hundreds of rounds of sparring. I can't say the same for Anthony Joshua.

"I believe the British fans have been brainwashed at an over hyped Joshua. He is there to be exposed"

Damn! Joshua has 20 KO losses and the media has been covering it up. This is bigger than the fake moon landing.
