What TV channel is it on?

Sky Sports announced this week that it will be broadcasting the fight on Saturday morning. Coverage begins at 11am on Sky Sports 3.

Why does this matter?

Anthony Joshua's victory over Wladimir Klitschko last Saturday night has put the UK at the forefront of the heavyweight division. Joshua now has two belts - IBF and WBA - with Deontay Wilder holding the WBC belt. 

Parker holds the fourth - the WBO title - and has been talked about as a potential future opponent for Joshua and Tony Bellew.

What are they saying?

Here's what Bellew told Ring TV:

“I hit pads for the first time, so I’m on my way back. I’m punching again and I’m happy with where I’m at. It’s been a long time coming and I’m just looking to the future now. I could fight once or twice by the end of this year.

“I have options and Deontay is one of them. Joseph Parker’s people have also been in touch and he wants to come over here and do it. I’m not going to commit to any of them at the moment though. I’ll weigh-up all my options and go from there.”

What are the odds?

  • Parker win - 1/100

  • Cojanu win - 16/1

  • Draw - 33/1
