With Higgins now in the United Kingdom to finalise terms and secure against IBF and WBA holder Joshua, Parker's promoter said that although the unbeaten Kiwi has struggled recently, the Brit will give his fighter a chance.
The unification title fight is set to take place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff on April 1 (NZ time).
The fighters' respective promotions, Matchroom Boxing and Duco Events, have been locked in negotiations since the end of a year ago, with the purse split the largest obstacle that needed to be hurdled.
"I was bantering with David Higgins yesterday".
"We feel otherwise. You're going to see a lot of fireworks this press conference".
That's the word from Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn as he continues to make rapid progress with Duco Boxing boss David Higgins over the final details of the fight contract.
