David Haye, who promotes Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce (4-0, 4 KOs), is willing to match his boxer against heavyweight in the division.
Joyce is back in the ring on June 16th in York Hall against an opponent to be determined.
In his last fight, earlier this month at the O2 Arena in London, he captured the Commonwealth heavyweight title with a two round knockout of Lenroy Thomas.
In the last few months, Joyce has targeted a number of heavyweights to fight - including top contender Jarrell Miller and former EBU champion Dereck Chisora, and even Dillian Whyte,
Miller and Whyte have both brushed off his challenge. Joyce has also been rejected by top contenders Hughie Fury and Joseph Parker.
Because of his advanced age of 32, Joyce is hoping to secure a world title shot by next year.
If an offer came down tomorrow, Haye would match him against Whyte or Miller with no issues.
“He’d have my blessing to fight Dillian Whyte or (Jarrell) ‘Big Baby’ Miller next, no problem,” Haye told Boxing News. “I think he’d take both of them apart.
“People are starting to see what Joe Joyce is all about now, but, trust me, they haven’t seen anything yet. He’ll beat all these guys.”
