GETTYAnthony Joshua could face the biggest year of his career in 2018

Anthony Joshua

"He emailed an offer that wasn't enough - it was so low I wouldn't engage with it", Higgins told the Herald. It could have been the most insulting offer in boxing history.

'To expect 40 per cent is actually quite reasonable, because you have earned it, and it's a unification (bout).

"Of course I have mentioned it (to Parker) and he just laughed like I did".

Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn drive a hard bargain. Assuming someone hacked his email, I apologise to Eddie, and he's welcome to give me a call.

New Zealand boxer Joseph Parker has laughed off an opening offer to fight British heavyweight Anthony Joshua. "I reckon Eddie respects boxing and I reckon Anthony Joshua wouldn't want to insult Joseph Parker". "It must be an email hack".

Teravainen, Hurricanes roll past Bishop, Stars
Lindholm was camped in the crease in front of Bishop, completely shielding the puck from the Stars goaltender who saw it too late. Having Staal with the two Finns might be able to produce a solid scoring line - Staal's four assists Monday were a career high.

Joshua is also in negotiations now to face WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder and one would suspect that would take priority if a deal was reached first. I am working on getting this fight done. "Providing Deontay Wilder is true to his word this fight will happen in 2018", Joshua told Dubai Eye 103.8.

However, Fury's impending return to the four-cornered ring could have a huge bearing on whether the two meet on more than one occasion. I want to test his chin and put on a great show.

And the Brit explained that he felt the tirade was necessary to defend himself, as all three fighters have been bashing him for several weeks.

Higgins said he began exchanging emails with Hearn in the past week or so.

Higgins said Parker would be happy to fight Wilder instead should Hearn refuse to budge in his twin-negotiations.

Packers: Aaron Jones, Ty Montgomery injured in win over Bears
When he got in there yesterday, he cut it loose. "That was all on me because I'm the last line of defense", said Amukamara. With Jones ailing, the Packers will once again be forced to turn to wide receiver turned running back Ty Montgomery .

Higgins said any agreement had be a fair one and be respectful of Parker having earned a world title.

Parker last fought earlier this year in a defence of his title against Hughie Fury in Manchester. He won't fight again until the new year.

Clearly there's still a long way to go with so many options still a possibility but the idea of the pair having one fight in the United Kingdom and another in America is certainly one that would appeal to many.

Other possible opponents for Parker were American Bryant Jennings in Las Vegas in March and China's Zhang Zhilei in China in the second quarter of the year.
