WBA/IBF champion Joshua was composed and convincing at the London press conference, where the respective managers sparred over pre-fight noise from the Parker camp which has included claims Joshua has a weak chin.
Matchroom Boxing and Duco Events have today hosted the maiden press event for the March 31st's world heavyweight unification clash between unified (IBF, WBO, IBO) world heavyweight titleholder Anthony Joshua and Joespeh Parker the current holder of the WBO world title.
"With Klitschko, all them times, it taught me it will take more than a human to stop me from where I'm destined to be".
'What I have learned from those times of adversity and going through storms is that it will take more than any human to stop me on this journey'. In terms of what's been said but I take everything with a pinch of salt and roll with the punches. "Now we're here it's about making history".
Joshua has been dropped numerous times.
"We respect the achievement of winning 20 straight fights and holding two belts", Higgins said.
Joshua said, "I took my time last time out (against Carlos Takam) because I wanted to set up a good 2018".

"Joshua is a big, powerful guy".
It will be the first fight that unifies three world heavyweight title belts since Klitschko beat England's David Haye in 2011.
"I got stopped, not dropped".
His opponent's camp has suggested Parker will target the Joshua's "weak chin" - using Wladimir Klitschko's knockdown of the Brit a year ago as evidence before Joshua bounced back to be crowned WBA world champion at Wembley Stadium.
The fight will be on Saturday, March 31 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. But in terms of Parker, I don't really know how to take his camp. "But I know I have a lot of support from Tyson which is pretty awesome". I know he's watched me.
The 26-year-old became New Zealand's first heavyweight world champion when he landed the WBO strap in December 2016 against the undefeated Mexican American star Andy Ruiz in Auckland. AJ revealed on Tuesday that he headed to that session having "come out of a police cell". When I used to watch him, they used to disrespect him a lot of the time about his style and performance.
"We've got a great relationship with [Povetkin's promoters] World of Boxing and he might box on the card", Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports.
