Haye: I Offered Chisora 80K To Face Joyce - He Said 'No'

According to former heavyweight champion David Haye, he put forth an offer of £80,000 to Dereck Chisora to fight heavyweight Joe Joyce.

Joyce, a former GB amateur star who won silver at the last Olympics, is being fast-tracked in the paid ranks.

The 32 year old fighter made his pro debut last October, with an eight round stoppage over veteran Ian Lewison at the O2.

Haye, who promotes Joyce and scored a knockout victory over Chisora in 2012, is looking to pressure his former foe into taking this fight.

Joyce is scheduled for his second pro fight on February 16th at York Hall against Rudolf Jozic. If all goes well, the undefeated prospect is being lined up to fight again on May 5th, as part of the undercard to the rematch between Haye and David Bellew at the O2 Arena in London. 

Haye is looking to get more funds together, to make an even bigger offer to Chisora to have him fight Joyce on the May 5th card.

Chisora (27-8, 19 KOs) has been out of the ring since November 2017, when he lost a twelve round majority decision to Agit Kabayel in an EBU title fight.

The Hayemaker, who wants Joyce to get the best opponent possible, said to the South London Press & Mercury: “I’ve offered Chisora £80,000 to fight in March against Joe and he straight-up said no – £80k to fight a two-fight novice.

“This was a couple of weeks back. I probably can rustle up a bit more on the undercard [of Haye’s fight with Tony Bellew on May 5].

“Let’s keep public pressure on Dereck to fight Joe Joyce on May 5, drive him mad. We need to force him to take this fight.

“Dereck Chisora is a well-seasoned campaigner. If he doesn’t fight a 3-0 fighter, although he is an Olympic silver medallist, after coming off a loss then what else are his options.”

Even though Chisora is no longer a legit contender, why would he take 80k pounds in a lose lose situation against a prospect with less than a handful of pro bouts? If he wins, he won't be given much credit…

[QUOTE=yoshik;18480576]I disagree. If he fights for Golden Boy in Vegas he will not only be a champ but next in line for AJ lol!! Why isn't Wilder calling Joyce out?? Maybe he can beat him too and add another name…

[QUOTE=Bobby Shaw;18480109]The scorecards for that unsigned fight were filled last week. Del Boy won't get the decision if he doesn't knock out Joyce. It's a robbery in the works and he knows it.[/QUOTE] Watching Joyce is funny, though. No head…

[QUOTE=Shontae De'marc;18480079]Agreed, but then anything's possible in this shallow HW division - look at how Parker and Ruiz got a shot at a vacant title. Joe Joyce fights for autism bro, maybe he has some secret autistic strength too?[/QUOTE] Knowing…
