Boxing Betting Preview: Top Joshua Vs Parker Betting Tips

On Saturday 31st March 2018 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, boxing superstar and Matchroom fighter Anthony Joshua will defend his WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight world titles against New Zealander Joseph Parker.

Parker is a technically gifted and unpredictable boxer who arrives at this key fight showing some good form, having outgunned Hughie Fury in his last fight.

Both Joshua and Parker are unbeaten in their professional careers to date and Joseph Parker also puts his WBO Heavyweight belt on the line for the first “Superfight” of 2018.

Top Joshua Vs Parker Betting Odds

Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker Betting Odds

The online bookmakers have made Anthony Joshua a very short price to win again, with William Hill offering the best betting odds of just 1/8 (1.13). Definitely a price for the big hitters.

Paddy Power are offering a more attractive price of 3/10 (1.33) on Anthony Joshua winning by KO/TKO, but the individual ‘Round Betting’ is where you can find the bigger odds bets.

For example, if you think Anthony Joshua will win the fight in Round 5, Ladbrokes are offering a huge 9/1 (10.00) about Joshua landing the telling blow inside those three minutes.

If you like Joseph Parker, BWin and Sportingbet have a mammoth price of 33/1 (34.00) on Parker to win by Decision, which has been the case in three of his past four fights.

Joshua will be hoping he can get the job done quickly though, and set up a mouth-watering encounter with Deontay Wilder later this summer. Wilder is said to be travelling to Cardiff for to see this fight, in order to both make his presence felt and indeed make his case toward securing a huge payday and title unification opportunity against Joshua.

Joshua Vs Parker Predictions & Best Bets

Joseph Parker is a solid heavyweight boxer, but will certainly be the smaller man when he faces Anthony Joshua in Cardiff. So his chances will depend on his ability to get in and out without taking too much damage, and perhaps building up some rounds on the scoreboard with the faster early work.

It won’t be easy and Anthony Joshua’s power – as we all saw against Klitschko – remains every bit as dangerous in the later rounds as it is in the earlier rounds. No only that, in a recent interview “AJ” promised to show even more improvement this year and given his work ethic, who are we to say he won’t get even better?

That is a frightening prospect, not just for Parker, but for the entire heavyweight division but in terms of boxing betting, having Anthony Joshua on our side seems to be the best way to approach this bout.

Parker is a very classy and experienced opponent though – he will be a determined challenger and indeed defender of his own World title on the night – so the fight may well unfold well into the second half of the fight and that train of thought leads us to bet on the bout going beyond seven rounds at 11/10 (2.10) with bet365.
