Anthony Joshua says Joseph Parker faces overwhelming experience

WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says Joseph Parker will be 'overwhelmed' in their unification fight in Cardiff on Saturday.

Undefeated Briton Joshua is the overwhelming favourite and will have home advantage in the Principality Stadium, although New Zealander Parker is also unbeaten in his 24 fights and brings with him the WBO belt.

A crowd of 80,000 is expected and Joshua says Parker will have never heard anything like the noise that will be generated.

Whoever wins will become a three-belt heavyweight champion and Joshua says the high stakes will create an electric atmosphere in the Welsh capital.

Parker's promoter David Higgins said Joshua is rattled and warned that Tuesday's pre-fight news conference will start without Joshua if he arrives late, as he has done in the past.
