Parker vs Joshua: Joseph Parker arrives in London ahead of unification fight

Joseph Parker has arrived in the UK exactly two weeks out from his bout against Anthony Joshua in Cardiff on April 1 (NZT).

Parker landed at London's Gatwick Airport after an intense eight-week training camp in Las Vegas, and the 26-year-old Kiwi says he is full of confidence as the fight draws closer.

"It's great to be here. We love it here. It's always felt real but now the countdown begins,' Parker told Sky Sports UK.

"We've arrived here in good condition; mentally and physically we're strong and we're looking forward to putting on a great display.

"I'm young, fast, strong, my movement is good, I have a great team behind me, and I have my two nations behind me."

The 26-year-old Parker will take a day off before starting his final preparations on Monday (Tuesday NZ time).

"We'll hit the ground running on Monday," Parker's trainer Kevin Barry said. "The first week back here will be a good, solid week for us as we start our tapering off phase," Parker's trainer Kevin Barry said.

"Next week we'll just be staying mentally and physically very sharp. We've had a great camp and Joe's in a very good mind space at the moment. We come here with a lot of confidence."
