Abel Sanchez: By End of 2019, Joyce Ready For Wilder, Joshua

Abel Sanchez, the new head trainer of Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce (5-0, 5 KOs), expects his fighter to be ready for the two reigning world heavyweight champions by the end of next year.

Anthony Joshua will defend the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO titles against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on September 22nd at Wembley in London.

And Deontay Wilder will defend the WBC world title against unbeaten lineal champion Tyson Fury in the fall, likely on a date in November in Las Vegas.

In the last few months, Joyce has called for fights Dereck Chisora, Dillian Whyte and even Luis Ortiz.

Sanchez wants his fighter to be fully ready for everyone by next year.

"We want to improve. everything is a weakness and we will improve the weaknesses. If we only look at strengths then we won't get better. I look at things to improve. We will video-tape him so he sees the improvement, and can replicate the things that we want him to do," Joyce told Sky Sports.

"We're hopeful that by the end of this year he has had a couple of fights. Depending on who he is matched against, people will demand a certain level of fight for him. I hope he has significant fights. By the first quarter of next year [he will face world-class opponents].

"There is no time-frame because it depends how Joe develops. By the end of next year he will be 11-0 or 12-0 and ready to challenge for Joshua's titles, Deontay Wilder's title, or whoever has them at the time."

Sanchez is studying the main players in the weight divisions and he's already etching game plans to defeat them when the time comes.

"Those guys have certain qualities which we must master, and become better than them at. Our advantage is that we look at them now, to prepare for the day when we fight them. Every day and every fight must be a learning experience," Joyce said.
