As Joshua began discussing his plan to confirm a fight against Parker, a photo of the WBO champion appeared on the screen.

“Can I just say that looks like it’s going to be quite an easy fight,” Norton said, as he laughed at the photo.

“It’s the king of pies!”

“He must be a world class athlete but he doesn’t look like one does he?” he added.

Joshua couldn’t hold back a laugh himself and asked Norton whether “pie” should become Parker’s new nickname.

“Shall I give him a nickname? Pie, the pie,” said Joshua.

The heavyweight bout is expected to be confirmed within the next 24 hours and would reportedly take place on March 31 at Wales’ Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
