Although losing his 100 percent knockout record, Joshua was the clear victor, triumphing by the scores of 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109.
Despite taking out all three scorecards by a comfortable margin, England's Joshua faced one of the toughest tests of his career so far, taken through all 12 rounds for the first time in his 21 professional bouts. "I think we'll definitely see Joseph Parker again".
Parker had noticeably increased his work-rate, although Joshua still held control and he got a quickfire combination going at the end of round eight which ended a quiet spell for the British star.
"This was about boxing finesse".
"He's in a position where in 10 years as a pro he hasn't done what I have", he said.

The Sun.co.uk said Fury released eight Instagram story videos throughout the fight in Cardiff and after Joshua's points win over Parker on Saturday night. It's local. We're staying right here. Look at what Anthony Joshua's doing. They don't want to know. There's a lot to work on - it's a good experience being here, thank you all for the opportunity, to fight in this big stadium. "Why do I have all these belts, just to give someone a bonus".
However, Fury, who became a unified world champion in 2015 after defeating Wladimir Klitschko before vacating all his belts in freaky circumstances the following year, provided an in-fight running commentary via his instagram account, in which he was scathing about both fighters, particularly the victor. Namely Wilder, or mandatory WBA challenger Alexander Povetkin, who beat David Price in the undercard. He came into the match armed with 24 wins with 18 knockouts.
Parker seemed to hurt Joshua in the third with a left hook after their heads came together but Joshua was by now establishing his own, more powerful jab.
"I know the bookies say I might get a knockout but forget the hype, Parker was a world champion".
