Anthony Joshua said on Sunday talks over a March fight with Joseph Parker was 95 percent completed as the British boxer bids to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

The 28-year-old currently holds three of the five heavyweight titles, having this year added the (WBA) and (IBO) belts to the (IBF) belt he won in 2016.

He aspires to become the first boxer in history to hold all five titles and thinks a deal to fight (WBO) champion Parker in the next few months is close.

“What I think can be a reality is, I want to fight for the other championship belts.

There’s only two left, I have three. There’s five on the table and I have three of them, I want to fight for the fourth one, the (WBO) heavyweight championship of the world.

I think we’re 95 percent of the way there with completing with Joseph Parker,” Joshua said.

When asked when a fight with the New Zealander would take place and if it would be on British soil, Joshua added, “End of March, I would say.

“It has to be (in this country), the British support, what we’re achieving here is phenomenal.”
