Joshua added Parker's World Boxing Organization heavyweight title to his International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association belts with a unanimous points decision over the New Zealander after being taken to 12 rounds for the first time in his unbeaten 21-fight professional career.
Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) triumphed by scores of 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 and attention immediately turned to WBC titleholder Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).
Joshua's flawless run of 20 knockouts was ended by Parker, who retained his reputation for toughness, but AJ moved one belt away from becoming the undisputed champion.
For the first time in his professional career, Anthony Joshua would see not only the twelfth round, but also the scorecards. Do not cut, copy or lift any content from this website without our consent.
"My strategy was to stick behind the jab and that secured me another world title belt", Joshua said. I'm not into the hype, let's get the business done. What would I have to do to beat Wilder? Parker's ring walk was anchored in his Samoan and New Zealand ancestry, with his father and uncle leading him out.
In his post-match interview, Joshua had no hesitation in naming Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury as his most desirable future opponents. For the away fighter this was a whole new level of scrutiny; for Joshua, it was a third consecutive stadium fight, with a cumulative 250,000 seats sold in the process.
"We will back again stronger and I'm happy I went the twelve rounds". Look at what Anthony Joshua is doing.
Anthony Joshua goes on the attack against Joseph Parker.
Parker had noticeably increased his work-rate, although Joshua still held control and he got a quickfire combination going at the end of round eight which ended a quiet spell for the British star.
Fury watched the fight between Joshua and Parker, and based on what he saw - he believes Wilder would knock Joshua out in style. Joseph Parker stated this will be a war and I stated that this will be boxing finesse. "It was light work", said Joshua, after a mature, patient but hardly headline-grabbing performance.
Despite being down on weight, height and reach, Parker was still giving a good account of himself, although he again felt Joshua's power, with a left hook to the ribs and a right hand.
Parker's best moments came in the fifth and sixth rounds, when he poured on enough pressure to unsettle Joshua and claim the momentum heading in to the second half of the fight. I have no regrets - we take it on the chin. We know Hammer has been moving in the right direction, winning five of six fights since, that purple patch including knockout wins over Michael Sprott and David Price.
Joshua came out the unanimous victor, but what he did after the fight got pulses racing.
The victory also sets Joshua up for a blockbuster encounter with undefeated American Deontay Wilder, who holds the only other major belt in the division, the WBC crown.
