Usyk, Fury, Joshua. Joyce rated his chances against the heavyweight elite


British heavyweight Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) officially entered the heavyweight elite – last weekend in Manchester (England) he stopped the ex-world champion New Zealander Joseph Parker (30-3, 21 KOs).

Joyce is not going to stop there, he is ready to fight the best of the best – he assessed his chances against the division’s elite.

Tyson Fury: “I hit him during sparring. Therefore, I think that I will get into battle. I think I have a good chance of beating him. I think I’m ready for it. And I also think that the fight would have turned out just incredible. He is a great fighter, a great champion. But I’m going after him!”

Anthony Joshua: “He was already knocked out and beaten before me. And in the last fight, he personally did not impress me, although I agree that in the second fight with Usyk he looked better than in the first. He beat me in amateurs (early – approx. vRINGe). So it would be interesting for me to take revenge. In the meantime, you can only compare our performances against Parker.

Oleksandr Usyk: “I am often written off because of the defeat of Usyk in the WSB league. But since then, I have had almost 10 years to learn how to box with a southpaw. And don’t forget that a semi-professional league and a professional one are a huge difference. We will have 12 rounds and small gloves. I will have a special preparation for it directly. I will throw more punches. I will do my best to make him feel as comfortable as possible. And I already know his style. I know what to expect from him. Believe me, I will have excellent chances to delay it or at least beat it on points.

Yesterday, the outrageous Teddy Atlas summed up the potential Wilder-Joyce fight beautifully. And Joe called Fury into the ring. He answered – no, now I need Usyk.
