Joe Joyce Would Be Interested in a Wilder vs. Whyte Showdown

By Ryan Burton

2016 Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce (1-0) is putting the final touches on his training camp for his February 16th clash against an opponent to be announced soon. The fight will take place at York Hall in Bethnal Green.

Joyce last fought in October when he won his pro debut by stoppage over Ian Lewison and he can't wait to get back in the ring.

"I am ready now. Let's make some waves and smash the heavyweight division," said Joyce who is promoted by Hayemaker Ringstar.

One fighter that he is interested in facing in the near future is Dillian Whyte (22-1) who is facing Lucas "Big Daddy" Browne (25-0) on March 24th.

"He is a good fighter. He is strong. He is from London and that is where all the good heavyweights come from right now. He gave Joshua a good fight and took him several good rounds. The Body Snatcher has good power and good technique. If he comes up against me later on I think I got what it takes to take him down," Joyce stated.

The 32-year-old Joyce also said that he would like to see Whyte face WBC champion Deontay Wilder.  Matchroom Sport's Eddie Hearn reportedly offered Wilder a career high payday to face Whyte in the United Kingdom. The offer was part of a two-fight package that would have landed Wilder a fight with Anthony Joshua if he were to defeat Whyte.  Wilder rejected the offer and said that he wanted to only face Joshua.

Joyce believes that Whyte would be a live dog against Wilder if the fight were ever to come to fruition.

"Actually I would like to see him against Wilder to be fair. I think that would be an interesting fight. I would like to see how it would play out,' Joyce told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Holler;18463668]Joshua wants to unifiy the titles, which means he'll have to complete his mandatory defence against Povetkin after the Parker fight. So Wilder won't be fighting Joshua next.[/QUOTE] It’s called Billionaire brat promoter and step aside money, scaredy cat

Who gives two hoots what Joyce wants. It's what Wilder wants and that's a negative.

Would be good fight but Breazeale is first in the line.

Joyce should take it easy and progress the normal route. He needs some solid experience becausr if he cuts corners he won't stay in the sport for long. David Haye wasn't the best promoter for this guy, he needs an…

[QUOTE=Fire4231;18463606]Stop with this garbage Whyte narrative... if Wilder beats Ortiz he should be fighting Joshua. End of story... Eddie and media benefactors need to quit protecting Joshua. The kid can fight, trust he will come out of the ruckus belt…
