Marlborough Express - - SPORT -

WBA and IBF heavy­weight box­ing cham­pion An­thony Joshua says he ex­pects to fight New Zealand’s Joseph Parker next year. The English­man told The Mail on Sun­day that Parker will beat Hughie Fury in their WBO world ti­tle bout in Manch­ester next week­end, which will go to­wards set­ting up a Joshua v Parker bout in 2018. ‘‘Parker is quite strong. Hughie can out­box him but I’m not sure how long for. Maybe Parker will stop him late on,’’ Joshua told The Mail. ‘‘I’ll box Parker in the fu­ture. I’m not sure about Hughie – I spoke to him a few times a few years ago but it never hap­pened.’’
