Joseph Parker features in a spine-tingling television promotion for his world heavyweight unification fight against Anthony Joshua.

In one image, shot by Sky Sports UK, Parker is super-imposed with a Maori warrior with a traditional moko, an attempt one presumes, to show that the Auckland-born Samoan will be representing New Zealand in Cardiff on April 1 NZT.

"Devastating forces shake the earth beneath our feet," the narrator intones during the 40-second clip. "Explosive. Frightening. No chance of retreat. Two beasts so ferocious they cannot be caged.

"Worlds apart, choose a side. Prepare yourself for forces to collide."


Parker will arrive in London from his Las Vegas base on Saturday to prepare for the fight in which his WBO world title belt, and Joshua's IBF and WBA titles, will be on the line.
