Joe Joyce on Daniel Dubois: I Don't Think He Really Wants It!

By Monica Hughes

2016 Olympic Silver Medalist Joe “The Juggernaut” Joyce (1-0, 1KO) is looking to get into the current heavyweight mix at the world level.  With names like Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury making waves for boxing’s glamour division, Joyce feels he is just a couple fights away from a world championship opportunity.

At 32, he knows he needs to move rapidly. 

There’s another London based heavyweight making a name for himself and also has many boxing pundits labeling him the future of the division.  Daniel Dubois (6-0, 6KOs) is 12 years Joyce’s junior at only 20 years old, but has taking to the media to let it be known that he is the better heavyweight hopeful of the two.

Joyce addressed his rivals comments on a recent appearance on the Mayweather Boxing Show.

“If he wants it.  He talks a good game.  I don’t know if he really wants it.  I’m a lot further on right now than him.  The opponents that he’s fighting now are not the caliber of people I’m fighting.  We’ll see what happens,” Joyce stated.

Both Joyce and Dubois know each other very well.  Both were a briefly a part of stacked Great Britain amateur boxing team that also featured current heavyweight kingpin Anthony Joshua. 

“He was on the GB Team as well before he turned pro.  He turned pro quite early.  I was quite surprised.  I did quite a few rounds with him.  He was on the squad with me, Anthony Joshua and Frazer Clarke.

“He’s a strong, young guy but I don’t think he’s been to any major tournaments or has had that kind of experience.  It’s going to take him a while before he gains that experience to put up a fight against someone who’s already been there and done that. 

When asked what the result would be if this fight took place in the future. 

Joyce responded - “Victory by Joe Joyce via beating.”

Dubois is more physical, but Joyce likely more experienced and skilled. Both guys are not World Title material anyway. This fight has Copperbox written all over it lol.

RoboJoe's only chance against Dubois is when he is at his greenest, so now would be the best time for him to make the fight. Joyce is mediocre at best.

[QUOTE=Boxnation fan;18425494]What suspect stamina haha he hasn't even been past 5 mins in a boxing ring yet and shown ZERO stamina issues. [B]Dubois has actually sparred Joe Joyce and absolutely demolished him and would do the same in a Pro…

Joyce is just trying to create some hype for himself because he's probably jealous that Dubois turned pro so early and is starting to create some waves. Joyce has loads of potential and a solid amateur background so he must…
