The Quotables Section
Joyce: “It’s taken a long time to set the stage for this battle. Finally, seeing no other option, Parker decided to fight. Compare and contrast the top and second-ranked contenders. The victor competes for a world championship. You’ll see why he avoided me so desperately in this exciting fight.
My crew and I have had a fantastic training camp, and Salas over in the UK has been giving me videotapes of our sparring sessions to help me prepare for the fight. I’m in a stronger position now, and I’ll make the necessary adjustments to win this battle. I haven’t asked for a better opponent than Joseph Parker, and I now feel I’m in the finest position possible. After this short conversation, I can’t wait to put on my fighting gloves and confront him.
Parker: “The fans in Manchester will see the best of me on Saturday, September 24. I’m confident that BOXXER will help me regain my heavyweight title, and Joe Joyce will soon learn why.
“Workouts with my trainer Andy Lee are going swimmingly, and I feel fantastic. I’m waiting a long time to finally fight you, and I’m here to inform you that the road for the Juggernaut ends right now. He is trapped and can’t get away.
