Joseph Parker's camp has decided to pursue a fight with Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne for the near future, unless Anthony Joshua's promoters offer a fair deal for a unification bout.

At a press conference in Auckland earlier today, Parker's promoter said they would pull from the Browne fight if Anthony Joshua agreed for Parker to receive 35 per cent of their fight purse.

However for now, Lucas Browne negotiations are underway.

Parker's team is also offering nearly NZD$40,000 to any Anthony Joshua fan who has proof of Joseph Parker being dropped in the ring.

Footage has gone around on social media of fighters talking about how they've beaten Anthony Joshua in the past.

DUCO Boss David Higgins says they're ready for Joshua because Parker's never been dropped.

"Twenty thousand British pounds for any Joshua fan who can show that Parker's been dropped - he hasn't."
