Joshua Speaking To Parker's Mum After The Fight Shows The Type Of Person He Is

Anthony Joshua is class, class act.

Ahead of Joshua vs. Parker, a lot of the talk surrounded WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. Not only because he could be a potential opponent, but also because of his comments on wanting to kill somebody inside the ring.

"I want a body on my record, I want one," Wilder said

"That's the Bronze Bomber, he want [a body]. I always tell people, when I'm in the ring, like I am the Bronze Bomber. With him, it's so crazy, when I'm in the Bronze Bomber, I don't really care. Everything about me changes. I don't get nervous, I don't get scared, I don't get butterflies, I don't have no feeling towards the man I'm fit to fight.

Joshua replied, saying: "Why would I want to kill her son in the ring?!"

He also spoke with Parker's mother following the 12 round fight, revealing what was said in the post-fight press conference.

"I made sure I spoke to Parker's mum before she left and say, 'Pat your son on the back, he's done well and he'll be back.'"

His affectionate gesture didn't go unnoticed. Twitter loved it:

What a bloke!

Who's next for the unified champ?
