Joe Joyce Discusses Potential Fights With Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury

Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce is obviously disappointed that his scheduled fight with Daniel Dubois was pushed back to a date of July 11th, after the two of them were set to collide on April 11.

The fight was pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"It's very unfortunate. The fight got postponed after a great camp in Vegas. It was all on track, everything was going perfectly, but then I had to get flown back to UK because we thought the flights would stop (because of coronavirus) and then we had to put it on hold. But in terms of the psychological game, I think it's to my advantage. My mindset and experience will carry me through," Joyce explained to Sky Sports.

Joyce is hoping that a win over Dubois will lead him to a world title opportunity.

The two world champions are Tyson Fury, who holds the WBC, and Anthony Joshua has the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight belts.

Joshua, who faces mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev next, had sparred plenty of times with Joyce in the past.

"Tyson Fury's tied up. Joshua beats Pulev… maybe it's me next. I used to love sparing with Joshua. Sometimes we used to go at it, toe-to-toe, really connecting. It wouldn't be a very good thing to do that against Joshua [in a real fight]. He's good in a dogfight, but it would be fun. You don't want to take big shots against Joshua," Joyce said.

"I don't think he (Joshua) would like to go 12 rounds. I wouldn't be on the back foot though, I remember him being slightly taller with a longer reach then me. My skill set, my strength, is to come forward."

And Fury would be another opportunity that Joyce would like.

"If Fury was to fight me, he'd want to outbox me. He's not going to knock me out. It would be me trying to walk him down, him trying to slip shots and counter. It would be a great match," Joyce said.

Joe Joyce have to be careful what he wish for, because Daniel Dubois is not joke and is not someone you can look over. I am still holding my ground that this fight is a 50/50 affair. :boxing:

If Dubois has a good chin , which we don’t really know he should be able to win this fight by mid to late rd tko.
