Parker offers AJ rematch clause

Joseph Parker has offered Anthony Joshua a rematch clause as he looks to get their world heavyweight boxing title unification fight across the line.

WBO champion Parker is eager to fight IBF and WBA champion Joshua next, looking to set up a bout in the UK in March.

Parker kept up his relentless pressure on the big Brit with another tweet highlighting what he sees as a susceptibility in Joshua's chin.

"Doesn't a 65-35 per cent between two unbeaten champions sound fair? Nearly double our share. Don't worry, a rematch clause is there in case you're worried about your chin," Parker taunted in his latest social media post.

Parker wants 35 per cent of the fight profit, a sticking point in negotiations, although Joshua's promoter

A rematch clause is massive insurance for Joshua if he did get upset by Parker.

A rematch wouldn't be a worry for the Kiwi given the way the purse is likely to explode for a sequel.

Hearn and Parker's promoter David Higgins have been suspiciously quiet about the fight over the last couple of days – a sign that things are getting serious, as opposed to the name calling that has highlighted the process over the previous two or three weeks.
