Anthony Joshua makes HUGE Deontay Wilder claim ahead of Joseph Parker bout

UFC president Dana White announced his intention to expand his promotional interests into boxing previous year and it appears as though he has his first target in sight: unified heavyweight world titleholder Anthony Joshua.

The Telegraph's fight expert Gareth A. Davies claims UFC president Dana White will jet to Wales to watch Joshua from ringside when the WBA, IBF, and IBO champion defends his titles against WBO belt holder Joseph Parker on March 31. But he says the fact that Joshua has been floored in both the unpaid and paid codes suggests he has a "glass jaw". Could Joshua make an impact in the UFC or should he stick to boxing? The 28-year-old, in addition to his incredible skill and power inside the squared circle, is well respected outside the ring and has a proven track record of selling out massive stadiums.

UFC is set to offer Anthony Joshua a $500 million (£353 million) fight contract just one week after the fighter expressed an interest in taking on two of the UFC's biggest stars.

Anthony Joshua might be the poster boy of world boxing who counts Prince Harry among his friends but there will be no airs and graces ahead of the biggest fight of his life.

Nissan promises 8 new EVs and 1m yearly sales by 2022
The company is also targeting an 8% core operating profit margin and cumulative free cash flow of ¥2.5 trillion (US$23 billion). Nissan tested its first robo-vehicle ride-hailing service called "Easy Ride" with partner DeNA earlier this month.

"There is an undefeated WBO champion called Joseph Parker, and his people are here from New Zealand and they're here from Samoa".

Parker will be in uncharted territory, having typically fought in front of crowds of around 10,000 in his native country.

Joshua is hoping that a victory at the Principality Stadium next Saturday will help him secure a bumper unification fight with American Deontay Wilder.

Joshua will have to be on top form if is to beat his opponent in Cardiff. "So I don't know why he is worrying about me". "He's probably trying to get advice from Klitschko", Parker said. "When he's on the back foot, he's performed better".

Syria remains silent amid Israeli revelation of nuclear facility destruction
A male voice is heard counting down three seconds, a cloud of black smoke rises from the structure as it explodes. In 2008, USA officials claimed Syria tried to develop a secret nuclear reactor that was bombed by Israel .

ESPN's Dan Rafael reports that there's still approximately a year remaining on Joshua's deal with Hearn, who said: "If Dana White wants to speak to us, obviously Anthony is with us, we're willing to talk to anybody".

"I'm trying to keep Joe away from this as much as possible now". Being ourselves, inviting them into our home and making them some nice food, which I was very sad to see because I was eating other food.

"When I am well-rested I have more concentration, more energy to give to the sport". "Look", he says. "We have now defended the heavyweight crown the most times in British history".

And he is happy to laugh off the "king of steroids" jibe made by Parker in the build-up.

Don't be emotional in trade, China tells US
"If there is one thing that will be different from the past, that will be that China will open even wider", said Li. China aims to expand its economy by around 6.5 percent this year, the same target as in 2017, which it handily beat.

AJ's battle with Parker is the last one on his exclusive US TV deal with Showtime.
