Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce is hoping WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury sticks around in the sport.

Joyce was ring last Saturday at Wembley Stadium in London, as Fury retained his title with a sixth round knockout of mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte.

After the fight, Fury expressed his desire to retire from boxing in the near future.

Joyce is nearing a finalized deal to fight former WBO champion Joseph Parker in the summer - but eventually fighting Fury is one his goals.

"[Fury] better have [more fights left] because I want to fight him at one stage. If he wants it, I'm here. Sometimes, I guess, Fury can get a bit complacent. I thought maybe Dillian might have a chance to land the overhand right or work the body shots, but [Tyson] stayed switched on and dealt with it," Joyce said to Sky Sports.

"You could see his focus and determination; he wasn't taking his eye off the ball. He is so skilled."

Joyce, 36-years-old, has been out of the ring since stopping veteran Carlos Takam in six rounds last July.

He's currently gearing up for a potential fight with Parker. The Olympian feels the contest makes a lot of sense for both boxers, based on their positions with the sanctioning bodies.

"I'm back sparring and ready to get back to Las Vegas and back training with a proper solid camp for Parker. That's scheduled for July 2 - it's not 100 percent done yet but it's pretty much there," Joyce said.

"Both myself and Parker want it; we're both similar, friendly guys but once we get in that ring it's going to be a different story. I'm No 1 in the WBO rankings and he's No 2. I'm two in WBC and he's three, so what better fight out there for both of us?"
