Joshua, 28, holds the IBF and WBA belts, while New Zealander Parker is the WBO champion.
Cardiff’s Principality stadium – where Joshua successfully defended his titles against Carlos Takam in October – will host the bout.
Parker is undefeated in his 24 professional fights, with 18 of those wins coming by a knockout.
Joshua became IBF heavyweight champion by defeating Charles Martin at London’s O2 Arena in April 2016.
The following April, he added the WBA belt by beating Wladimir Klitschkoin front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
Whoever wins in March is certain to then face undefeated American Deontay Wilder, who holds the fourth belt in the heavyweight division. No boxer has held all four heavyweight belts simultaneously.
