Tyson Fury has expressed his interest to see the hard-punching Deontay Wilder face the tough Joe Joyce.
Many agree with Fury in that this heavyweight match-up would be an interesting watch to find out if the ‘Juggernaut’ can take Wilder’s power.
After his win last Saturday against Derek Chisora, ‘The Gypsy King’ looks to fight Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed title. Fury has weighed in on a potential clash between Wilder and Joyce to The Daily Star.
“I don’t think there’s anyone in the world who can take Deontay Wilder’s power.”
“Joyce is a juggernaut. That’s a fight I’d love to see. If I fight Usyk, maybe Joyce can fight Wilder. Who here wouldn’t want to see that? Who wouldn’t want to see the world’s toughest man take on the world’s biggest puncher? That would be fantastic.”
The WBC Heavyweight champion has shared the ring with Deontay Wilder three times and felt the power he holds, but came out on top twice after the first battle was a controversial draw.
‘The Bronze Bomber’ appears to be set to face Andy Ruiz in a WBC final eliminator, although there are many calls for him to test the chin of the tough ‘Juggernaut’ who recently defeated a former world champion in Joseph Parker and announced himself on the top level.
Wilder clearly packs a punch with 42 knockouts out of his 43 wins but Joe Joyce is no pushover with 14 knockouts out of his 15 wins – as well as being known for his strong, come-forward approach.
Whether fans will see this potential match-up in the future is unknown, but it seems that Fury vs Usyk is certainly closer than any other recent undisputed heavyweight championship, so whilst the belts are tied up, it would be an excellent fight in the mean time.
