Joseph Parker and his team have spent much of the build-up to Saturday's heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua claiming the Brit has a glass chin, but bookies are having none of it. 

The New Zealander, who has 18 KOs from 24 wins, has been keen to talk up how Wladimir Klitschko dropped AJ to the canvas, and Parker insists he has the power to topple Joshua and stun the boxing world. 

Joshua agrees he is in with a "ferocious puncher", and those who think Parker will indeed derail Eddie Hearn's gravy train can get some juicy odds on the upset.

Parker is a 13-2 underdog, and it's 9-1 that he stops Joshua inside the 12-round distance. He is 16-1 to win in the first six rounds, and if you want to pick the round in which Parker wins they are each available between 80-1 and 100-1. 

However, if the markets are to be believed a Joshua KO victory is much more likely. AJ is 4-11 to stop Parker at any time, and 5-1 to do it in the first three rounds. 

AJ has won all 20 of his fights by knockout, and it's 4-1 that he hears the final bell for the first time in his professional career.
