Joe Joyce has made his prediction for an undisputed potential clash between Tyson Fury – and he is backing his fellow Brit at the top.
Joyce said Behind the Gloves that he believes Fury’s size would simply be too difficult an obstacle for the talented Ukrainian to overcome.
However, ‘The Juggernaut’ was quick to emphasize that the fight may not be as easy for Fury as some in the sport believe.
“Usyk vs Fury, I think it’s going to be a good fight and very technical, but I just think Fury is too big and he’s going to handle him.”
“Usyk has shown he can throw a lot of punches in 12 rounds. He can make it difficult and I think it’s going to be a tighter fight than people think.”
Joyce was speaking ahead of Fury’s comfortable win over Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium last weekend, where the linear world champion controlled matters from the opening bell to the referee. Victor Loughlin signaled the competition in the tenth round.
The olympic silver medalist will be hoping he can take down Fury on his own in 2023, and stepped on the ring apron to confront the ‘King of Gypsy’ after the victory over Chisora.
Unified world champion Usyk was also in London and he also had a look at Fury. Discussions of an undisputed match between the pair are said to be progressing well with numerous lucrative international site offers reportedly being received.
After fans were frustrated by the failure of negotiations for Fury to take on Anthony Joshua earlier this year, the boxing public will be praying that they’ll be treated to a mammoth super heavyweight on Sunday. 2023 for revision.
