Don King Fears For Joe Joyce: Heaven Help Him With Stiverne

Don King, promoter for former WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne, fears for the safety of Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce.

On February 23rd, Stiverne will face Joyce - a red hot prospect with only 7 fights under his belt - on the undercard of James DeGale’s grudge match with Chris Eubank Jr. at The O2 in London.

The 2016 Olympic silver medallist, 33, has won each of his seven fights inside the distance. The 40-year-old Stiverne has been out of the ring since getting knocked out by WBC champion Deontay Wilder in one round in November 2017.

Stiverne has three defeats on his record - two to Wilder and a loss to Demetrice King in 2007.

He's the most experienced opponent to date for Joyce, who is trained by Abel Sanchez and on the fast track to a world title.

“Bermane Stiverne begins his comeback at the expense of the Giant Joe Joyce.  Unfortunately, for the local fans of Joe there will no ‘re Joycing' - as my once - and future champion Bermane Stiverne will slay Joyce just like St. George did the dragon of old.  But no matter, we will pick up the pieces and bring back Joyce just as I have brought back and helped build many a future together," King said.

"I recall when I came [to the UK] with Oliver McCall and he was given no chance against Lennox Lewis.  Then the underdog became the top dog when Oliver KO'd the previously unbeaten champ and we went home with the title.  History will repeat itself of February 23 when Bermane sends another undefeated Englishman to defeat. 

"Now retooled, resuscitated, renewed, rejuvenated and recommitted Bermane Stiverne will resurrect his career on February 23 when the 'Lord of Ring" crushes the "Lord of the World" - 'Juggernaut" Joyce on his inexorable march to regain the heavyweight championship of the world.  Bless all British fans, God Save the Queen - but heaven help Joe Joyce!"

Oscar Rivas vs. Joe Joyce would be a damn good fight.

I won't pile on... all you guys got the good lines anyways. This is a fine step up fight for Joyce. He will blow him out of the water and have a nice name on his resume. Then he can…

[QUOTE=Thebrownbear;19460517]Really? I'm wondering which row Stiverne's head lands in. That's my bet.[/QUOTE] Stiverne is old, inactive and rusty.
