With Fury set to return to action for the first time since ending Wladimir Klitschko's heavyweight dominance in November 2015, many are billing the prospective meeting with current WBA Super and IBF world champion Joshua as a simple match-up of boxer vs. puncher.
A deal is almost wrapped up for the two heavyweights to collide on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Talks have been quite amicable, meaning Parker was happy enough to make the long trip to the United Kingdom to take part in a press conference to confirm the fight early next week.

Duco are sending a small team, alongside Parker, to follow promoter David Higgins - who flew to London earlier this week to meet face-to-face with Joshua's handler Eddie Hearn. He's got height, weight, can punch and can box a bit.
"All I'm focused on is being in great shape, training hard and doing my best to knock him out and catch his glass jaw", Parker said.
"We need these belts, there is no secret, and they know that as well", he said.

"If we get the deal fully done then I'll send him on a plane straight away", he added. "He won't be able to recover against me".
Higgins also unsurprisingly backed his fighter, saying that he has the desire to take victory against the heavily favoured Joshua.
"The truth is that all the fights he has had from the beginning [of his career] have been in his favour, and he's had everything his way".

After Sinema's entry into the race, several national analysts rated the normally solid Republican seat a "toss up" in 2018. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) came across as a fierce and unhesitant supporter of President Donald Trump, the Hill reported.
"AJ wants all the belts and Parker is the ideal fight, the flawless time", said Hearn.
