Oleksandr Usyk: “I don’t want to fight Joyce, he’s like a tank!”


Ukrainian WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) answered a question about a possible fight against the “interim” WBO champion and, accordingly, one of his mandatory contenders Briton Joe Joyce (15- 0.14 KO).

Apparently, Joyce should not hope for a quick chance to get even for the defeat of the Ukrainian in the WSB semi-professional league in 2013.

“No, I don’t want to fight him. He’s like a tank! Have you seen how he fights? Alexander asked. And added to avoid misunderstandings. “But seriously, I want to fight for titles.”

Usyk has previously said that his next opponent will be WBC title holder Tyson Fury. And if everything goes well, then Deontay Wilder will be next.

It is not surprising that Joyce predicts the loss of the WBO title by the Ukrainian.
