Billy Nelson, trainer for hard-hitter Martin Bakole (11-0, 8 KOs), believes his man would score a knockout victory over Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce (5-0, 5 KOs).
Last weekend at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Bakole blew away DL Jones in the first round - quicker than what Daniel Dubois had accomplished when he stopped Jones in three rounds in February.
Bakole has held his own during competitive sparring sessions with several top heavyweights, including WBA, IBF, IBO, WBO heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua.
Nelson feels confident his man would put away Joyce, who is currently one of the hottest heavyweight prospects in the sport.
"We'd like to face Joyce, but I'm not surprised in the slightest that they don't want to fight Martin because Joe is a good fighter and has been well invested in. That investment would come to a sudden halt because Martin Bakole knocks Joe Joyce out, he's far too quick and punches every bit as hard, if not harder," Nelson told Sky Sports.
"Martin just has so much more than Joyce. If my man didn't win a world title I would class that as a failure. We're not here to win 6-8 rounders, we are both winners and I believe we will win major titles together."
Nelson was present when Bakole sparred with Joshua and he was very impressed with what he saw - and would even entertain a matching his boxer against Joshua in a year's time.
"AJ has always stated that he wants to fight in Africa so why not, in a year's time, take on Martin, the continent's number one heavyweight," Nelson said.
"It won't be long before Martin is at that level. He has the skills and ability to take on 'AJ' now, but in 12 months when he has greater experience and more rounds in the bank, which is required, it's a fantastic fight.
"I remember 'AJ' exploding a right hand off Martin's jaw that even I nearly went down from it! Martin took it really well and came straight back with an uppercut of his own, a fantastic shot. He certainly got AJ's respect and showed he could take a shot and come right back."
