WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says Joseph Parker will be 'overwhelmed' by the huge 80,000 crowd in their unification fight in Cardiff on Saturday.

Undefeated Briton Joshua is the clear favourite and will have home advantage in the Principality Stadium, although New Zealander Parker is also unbeaten in his 24 fights and brings with him the WBO belt. Joshua, who has a 20-0 record, said: "It's an experience he hasn't faced yet. It is daunting, it is overwhelming."
