Joshua gave the fight a good performance and won 9 rounds loosing three British fighter.
Horrible refereeing by Giuseppe Quartarone, spoilt it the fun of the game, as he never allowed them to fight on the inside.
As soon as the fight was done Parker said “Today I got beaten by a bigger man. No regrets. Take it on the chin. I will be back. I would love to have another go. Thanks.”
At the end of tonight’s match, Joshua improved to 21-0 but his knockout streak ends at 20 as he failed to knock out Parker.
There is a chance that Joshua would fight Deontay Wilder soon. Joshua’s final words for Wilder don’t leave much to the imagination: “Get him in the ring and I’ll knock him spark out.”
