Atlas: There’s only one boxer Joshua will never get in the ring with


Boxing columnist Teddy Atlas has no doubt that ex-unified heavyweight champion Briton Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) and his promoter Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing) will never agree to a fight with compatriot Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs).

“Yes, for nothing in the world! —
categorical Atlas. “They won’t come closer than 3 meters to him. Why is that? Because Joyce plays with opponents. He has a granite chin. Reminds me of a young George Foreman. Although I understand that you need to be careful with such a comparison – the dude is already 38 years old. But figs with him. Yes, he reminds me of Foreman. And the best version. The way he was before his return to the ring.”

“Joyce is a huge dude with pood fists, a powerful puncher. And his hands do not fly at lightning speed. But they methodically break the opponent, causing real damage. He is big. He knows no mercy. He is very brave and with an incredible handle. I hope that soon he will replace some of the current fighters and get a well-deserved title fight, ”said Atlas.

The current WBC champion Tyson Fury agrees with the expert: Joe Joyce will wipe the floor of the Joshua ring. And Joyce himself told how he was going to defeat Usyk.
