Team Parker on the move in London

World heavyweight champion Lupesoliai La’auliolemalietoa Joseph Parker is on the move in London, as the countdown continues towards his much-anticipated clash with Anthony Joshua.

 “We’ve been here two days,” said his Trainer Kevin Barry. 

“We got a light workout Saturday when we got off the plane.  Joe rested up yesterday.  We were in the gym this morning running and a good stretch out afterwards so today’s our first workout.”

Barry said Parker is in good shape. 

“What I needed to do today was to get the blood flowing, get a good sweat up, Joe’s drunk a lot of water in the last couple of days so I want to get some of that water weight off him.  We’re looking to do our normal four rounds of shadow,” he said. 

“I’ll probably hold pads with him for six rounds, we’ll go over the same punch combinations that we’ve been working on for the last two months, I will probably get him to do between four and six on the heavy bag, a couple of rounds of rope so I’m looking to do probably 16 rounds of boxing training today.”
