Scott praised Joyce and nicely compared to Wilder


In 2022, British heavyweight Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) became the interim WBO world champion, not noticing the resistance of the ex-owner of a full-fledged title in this version, New Zealander Joseph Parker (30-3, 21 KOs).

Since then, there has been more and more talk and controversy about his potential fight with former WBC champion American puncher Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs).

Here’s what about it
thinks Deontay’s current coach Malik Scott: “What is Joyce best known for? With his coolness and granite jaw. But the question is how long he can use it. There is only one thing that I know for sure. I know that any granite jaw has an expiration date. And his holder is no exception.”

Scott is sure that fighters who do not have striking power should not go against Joyce: “If you are not able to shock Joe, then God help you. His pressure and ability to impose his fight is no less dangerous and deadly weapon than Wilder’s firepower. This is a gift from above. Those are the things you can’t train.”

Scott believes that Wilder vs. Joyce should be organized in the near future: “If he’s going to fight Deontay, he’d better hurry up. He always arranges cool and very spectacular fights. But this does not benefit his holder. If he puts off this fight, there won’t be much left of him. What I’m talking about. Every jaw has an expiration date. The damage builds up, and in a moment, his ability to hold a blow will evaporate, as if he had never been there before. I tell you, it will disappear.”

American promoter Lou Dibella compared Joyce to Foreman: He’ll probably beat Usyk. Croatian slugger Alen Babich says the same thing: “Both Fury and Joyce will beat Usyk.” He is delighted with Joyce, believes that Joe “is a bit like me …”
