Via Brian Webber: Joe Joyce has volunteered his name to fight Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) on December 17 if he doesn’t fight Tyson Fury on December 3.
Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) admits it’s too early for him to take on Fury on December 3, as he’s about to have a tough fight with Joseph Parker, but he’s willing to go in and face the challenge. face Joshua on December 17.
Joyce says he wants AJ promoter Eddie Hearn to contact his manager at Frank Warren to start the negotiation process if he wants to make that fight.
Joshua is going to need a lot of courage to face Joyce because his game is completely off for him. ‘Juggernaut’ Joyce’s superior engine, strength, punching ability and high working speed will be a real deal for Joshua.
Hearn will probably drag his heels into letting Joshua mix with Joyce since he already knows the end result of a fight between them.
“If Fury and AJ don’t fight then I’ll join. December 3rd is very tight for me @Tyson_Fury, but @EddieHearn
you can call your new best mate @frankwarren_tv and i’ll take 17th place with AJ.
The battle is easy to make!
#THEJUGGERNAUT 👊🏾” Joe Joyce said on Twitter.
Hearn has done a great job of carefully guiding Joshua this far in his career to make him a two-time world champion. But his last two fights against Oleksandr Usyk showed Hearn’s limitations as a promoter. He can only protect Joshua so much.
Interestingly, Joyce did not include Fury as someone he would be willing to fight in December because if he did, it would put pressure on ‘Gyspy King’ to show how brave he is. any. Fury talks about a good fight, but he’ll be up against it fighting Joyce 6’6 ″, who will disarm of what he’s effective.
Fury has been turned into a by American trainer Sugarhill Steward the boxer is thinner, grappler and rough throws a rabbit punch. That style won’t work for Joyce like it did in his last two games against Deontay Wilder, who didn’t have the answer to it.
Joyce will have a great chance of beating Fury, and it will be an interesting fight if it lasts.
