Parker Showed Resilience In Win Against Wilder — Joshua

Anthony Joshua said Joseph Parker’s unexpected victory over Deontay Wilder showed incredible resiliency.

After 12 rounds, Parker surprised Wilder by winning by unanimous decision in their heavyweight fight on Saturday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

On the judges’ cards, the New Zealander prevailed 118-111, 118-110, and 120-108.

After falling short against Joy Joyce in the last fight, the former world champion has now won all three.

Joshua, who also defeated Otto Wallin on the same night, was quick to praise his former opponent for continuing his remarkable rise.

“I think it’s amazing what Parker done [against Wilder],” he said. “He came up short against Joe Joyce. he showed resilience pays off,”Joshua added

“Daniel Dubois came up short a few times. He showed resilience and it paid off. You only give up when that competition, that competitive spirit inside yourself dies.

” I’m a fierce competitor. You can ask my pals. Whether it’s spelling games, whether it’s chess. Whatever it may be we all compete with each other. I think you should always try and find that winning streak again, even if you’re coming up short a few times.
