According to reports, Joshua has made subtle tweaks to his training since defeating Carlos Takam in October. He now focuses on boxing during morning sessions, with running or strength work later in the day. The reverse of his old routine aims to see him fresher when doing technical work under the guidance of trainer Rob McCracken at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

His opponent, Parker is undefeated in 24 bouts and has also undergone changes of his own after having surgery on both elbows late in 2017, a move which his camp claim has led to a 20% improvement in his punching since he out-pointed Hughie Fury in September.
