Joe Joyce is in one of the most exciting heavyweight fights of the fall as he faces Joseph Parker which takes place on September 24th, at the Manchester Arena in Manchester with the vacant WBO interim heavyweight world title on the line, which would make the winner the mandatory for Oleksandr Usyk.
That said, the 2016 Olympic silver medalist in the super heavyweight division recently gave his thoughts on a potential Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua clash on December 3rd.
“I originally thought AJ [Anthony Joshua] would do the business but I’m definitely favoring Fury, just because of his boxing ability. But I still think it’s a great fight and Joshua has a puncher’s chance, as always," Joyce told Talk Sport. “He has very damaging punching power and if he goes on the offensive, it will be a very exciting fight, but it’s down to Fury. He can box on the back foot, he can switch. If he goes at him, he can stop Joshua.”
Joyce is no stranger to Tyson Fury, as prior to Fury’s first bout with Deontay Wilder, Joe Joyce and Guido Vianello served sparred Fury quite often while in Big Bear Lake, California, training out of Abel Sanchez’s private gym.
As of this week, Fury’s co-promoter, Frank Warren has stated that he is sending over a bout agreement for Joshua and his team to look over.
If this fight happens, this will be a very exciting fight for the sport of boxing.
