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 was quoted by

“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.
