Bernstein’s next SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING assignment comes on March 31 when he will call the action for the Anthony Joshua-Joseph Parker heavyweight title unification match from Cardiff, Wales. “This match follows on the heels of the thrilling victory of Deontay Wilder over Luis Ortiz, with Wilder defending his title. We should also expect fireworks in the Joshua-Parker fight. Our own brand of Heavyweight March Madness will end with two Champions and perhaps they will be headed on a collision course,” said Bernstein.
