New Zealand's Joseph Parker and British champion Anthony Joshua are keen to fight each other in a heavyweight title clash early next year but the finances have to be right for both boxers.

Joshua holds the IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight titles, while Parker holds the WBO crown. American Deontay Wilder holds the WBC title.

British media have reported that Joshua had indicated he would like to fight Wilder by the middle of 2018.

Parker's trainer, Kevin Barry, said he is keen to get the 25‑year‑old in the ring as soon as possible against the British Champion.

Barry said Parker would now enter a training camp in Auckland before heading back to Las Vegas in mid‑January.
