‘It’s too little too late’
Heavyweight title contender, Joe Joyce, has outlined the key mistake he believes cost Anthony Joshua in his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk back in March.
Joe Joyce had a breakout year in 2022, establishing himself as a serious threat to world title holders, as he demonstrated chin strength, power and pressure levels non-stop, in fight against Joseph Parker.
Being ‘The Rogue’ continue to be avoided by the bigger names in the divisionHe hopes that he can win the title of world champion this year and is eagerly awaiting the results of the competition. Undisputed title fight between Fury and Usyk.
Whether that opportunity goes to the undisputed champion, or if Tyson Fury or Usyk decides to give up the belt that Joyce could have fought for, there’s a good chance Joyce will have her chance.
When looking at the proposed must-watch match in 2023, Joyce stressed that Fury will need to be aggressive from the start and not be afraid or shy in front of the undisputed former cruiser class champion, much like like Joshua, he told ID Boxing.
“I think Joshua did better in the second round, but it wasn’t enough. Not enough throws. He was shot one or two times in the body, he tried and got a little rough with him, it was just too late. This is all about the end of the match, Fury will do it from the start, knocking him down, hitting the body and head. He’s going to rely on him and he’s got 85″ too, so he’s got range too.
“If Usyk was on top of him it could be difficult for him. [Fury]. Fury will have to turn south and do the stabs, then whip those butts if he comes in.”
For Joyce, names like Joshua and Deontay Wilder doesn’t seem to want to fight the 37-year-oldbut has revealed he is expected to fight in March, before securing a big fight in the summer.
