Joe Joyce Wants Povetkin, Takam, Miller - After Kabayel Withdraws

JOE JOYCE has sensationally called out heavyweight rivals Alexander Povetkin, Carlos Takam and Jarrell Miller after a European Title fight with Agit Kabayel fell through.

Germany's Kabayel withdrew from today's scheduled purse bid for a championship defence and therefore vacated his EBU European Heavyweight Championship.

"I’m very disappointed, as I would have liked to challenge Kabayel for the European title. He obviously never wanted to fight me in the first place," said the 10-0 Olympic Silver Medallist before turning his attention to alternative opponents.

Former world heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (35-2) and France's Carlos Takam (36-5-1) are high on 'The Juggernaut's' wishlist.

"Hopefully I can fight Povetkin or maybe Carlos Takam for the vacant title!"

Joyce currently holds the WBA 'Gold' Heavyweight championship and is also open to defending his title in his next fight against outspoken American Jarrell Miller (23-0-1).

"If Jarrell Miller is flushed out, I will fight him next no problem for my WBA Gold belt!".

Hall of Fame boxing promoter Frank Warren added: "We’re disappointed that Agit Kabayel has decided to vacate his title rather than fighting Joe Joyce.

"I think it’s clear he wants no part of the Juggernaut and is trying to hold onto this unbeaten record of his – a record he knows he would lose if he took on our man.

"We’ll sit down with Joe and the team and look at who’s next and who wants to step up!”

[QUOTE=slimPickings;20036646] I just do not see what people see in Povetkin. AGE has finally caught up with him[/QUOTE] You are maybe right, but still, he is clearly top 10 fighter. And I say he is better than ortiz.

Ive got to against the general opinion on this. I think he beats all 3. Povetkin a dangerous fight tho

[QUOTE=Roberto Vasquez;20036489]Disagree strongly. There is no fighter who Hughie Fury hasn't made look bad or worse than they actually are[/QUOTE] Agree to disagree. I still respect your opinion which is quite possible. I just do not see what people see…
