David Haye on how Joe Joyce can be considered above Anthony Joshua


David Haye has revealed he’s willing to rate Joe Joyce higher than Anthony Joshua in his heavyweight rankings – but only if he stops Joseph Parker this Saturday night.

Joyce, who has blocked all of her opponents so far, will face former rival Joshua Parker at Manchester Arena this weekend for the WBO interim world title.

Talking about the match and how much the victory meant for either of them, Haye said:

“I think both fighters have what it takes to fight Oleksandr Usyk. If Parker hit Joyce out, how could he not be ready for him?

He beat everyone he needed. He worked his way up the rankings. So does Joyce.

If Joyce beats Joseph Parker, he’ll be ready. Parker is an undefeated heavyweight boxer who just defeated a former heavyweight champion.”

And Haye said Sportsmail that he believes a victory in the gap against the New Zealanders, which ‘AJ’ cannot manage, will see ‘The Juggernaut’ leap AJ in the heavyweight pecking order.
