Anthony Joshua next opponent: AJ’s style Perfect For Parker, claims Barry

Anthony Joshua could fight Joseph Parker after Kubrat Pulev bout

Joshua gets in the ring with Kubrat Pulev in late October in his first fight since beating Wladimir Klitchsko in their stunning Wembley Stadium bout earlier this year.

And despite his showdown with the Bulgarian still being more than a month away, jostling has already started to become the Londoner’s next opponent.

Parker is keen to fight Joshua and his trainer Kevin Barry thinks the New Zealander has the right style to do the business in any bout that is made.

Who are the top ten pound-for-pound fighters in the world?

“Anthony Joshua’s style is perfect for Joseph Parker and we’ll be very excited when that day comes”

Barry told 5 Live Boxing: “We’re in a very good position, we’ve just got our mandatory (Hughie Fury) out of the way against a horrible opponent. One I didn’t want to fight.

“Now we are free to chose a style and opponent that suits Joseph.

“That makes me and our team really excited.

“Obviously the golden goose is Anthony Joshua and we thought 18 months ago we would be stepping into the ring with him.

“I think Joseph matches up very well against Joshua and styles make fights.

“I’ve also thought his particular style will suit us.

“That’s a fight we would love to be involved in.
