Anthony Joshua is expected to box in America "in the next 12 months", according to Eddie Hearn.

A superstar on the booming British boxing scene and very much used to the spotlight, Joshua also doesn't shy away from strong statements in the interview.

Parker is confident he'll get the better of his rival and, assuming he wins, is happy to reschedule another bout with Joshua after the March fight.

"I'm going to take the baddest man in the division!" Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Tony Bellew.

It is little secret that Fury has targeted IBF and WBA champion Joshua, who first must overcome WBO belt-holder Joseph Parker in their unification bout this month. Fighting.it's going to be straight blood, last ounce of energy because there's two fighters that don't want to give in, so that's the fighting terms.

In terms of this, it's new and I think, as I said, I respect the family side because I'm a family man, I respect that all day.

Chin check - Parker reveals why he questioned Joshua's punch resistance in the past. "That's not true, as far as I know", Hearn told Sky Sports.

Hearn does not see any sport of urgency for Joshua to fight in the United States, but he'd like to see his boxer invade other big boxing markets.

"I am not sure if the USA is imminent but I would expect him to box in America in the next 12 months". "Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, whoever else, I'm coming for you".
