Joshua vs Parker on Box Office
Sky Sports Box Office will show the heavyweight unification from Cardiff, on Saturday, March 31.
Wilder and promoter Eddie Hearn have both suggested the WBC champion will face Joshua 'next' with all four heavyweight titles on the line.
But Parker has told them both, that he will be the only one facing 'AJ' in 2018.
"I think my plans for the year are I fight Joshua and I beat him and then a re-match so that's my plans for the year," he told The Rock radio station.
Parker has also had another dig at Norton.
The TV talk-show host mocked the New Zealander's physique when Joshua appeared on his show in January, but deep into camp, the Kiwi is ready to prove him wrong.
"Camp is going fantastic. I feel like I'm in great shape," he said.
"When he (Graham Norton) called me the 'King of Pies', I'm going to take my shirt off at the weigh-in and honestly, see if I've been eating pies or not!
"I feel like I'm punching sharp, I'm moving well, making a lot of angles, movements, fitness is good, so everything is on track."
Watch Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff, March 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
