Previously, Showtime televised Joshua’s title victory over Charles Martin in April 2016 and has aired all four of his title defenses as part of a contract it has with Joshua.

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said: “The heavyweight division is in the midst of a renaissance, and Showtime is delivering all of the pivotal bouts to our subscribers. Anthony Joshua is a global superstar, and we’re proud to present his sixth, and perhaps most challenging, world title fight to the U.S. audience.

Joshua versus Parker will be the 12th heavyweight world championship match on Showtime since Deontay Wilder won his title in 2015, an undisputed industry-leading offering in boxing’s preeminent division.”
