Joseph Parker's bid to become world heavyweight champion has been given the green light.

The Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker - unification fight has been confirmed for March 31st in Cardiff, Wales.

While promoters signed the deal over the weekend, the two camps have been trading their own verbal blows.

“Graham Norton mentioned that I am the king of pies. I tell you this; I love the pies in New Zealand. I think I’ll call Joshua the king of steroids because he's so big and so muscly but who knows if he's clean or not."

While both fighters remain, the winner of the up and coming bout will walk away with three of the four world heavyweight titles.
