Tyson Fury decided to retire after the match with Dillian Whyte. Joe Joyce talked to Unibet about whether he could beat Fury. “It would be a very technical boxing match but I would just have to wear him down and juggernaut him and beat him at his own game,” Joyce said, as quoted by mirror.
“It’s a big ask, it’s a 50/50 fight but let’s hope he stays unretired and comes and fights me, I would love that fight”. Bob Arum made an interesting comment, and there seems to be a realistic chance that Fury will return.
"Well, I think Fury is going to wait to see how the [Anthony] Joshua fight comes out with [Oleksandr] Usyk, and then he'll make a determination whether he wants to continue. Other than fighting the winner of Joshua-Usyk, there's really nothing that's really of interest to Tyson Fury, so we will have to see."
Joe Joyce on Oleksandr Usyk
Joe Joyce also talked about a potential match with Oleksandr Usyk, but also his match with Anthony Joshua. "I'll be coming with more skills," Joyce said for Boxing Social. "I have [coach Ismael] Salas by my side to set the game plan and work on the skills etc.
“I didn't even get Southpaw sparring for the first fight I had with Usyk. I think that on the repeat, styles make fights and I reckon I'll bang him up." "I thought as soon as the fight started with him and Usyk, Usyk went straight to work," Joyce said .
"He knew how to beat Joshua and now that he's already beaten him, to do it again will be kind of the same. I've been in the ring with Usyk and I felt like I put on a better performance, actually, Chisora put on a great performance against Usyk.
That was much closer than the one against Joshua. So, I think it will be a repeat unless Joshua can do something drastically different and just nail him down."
