After becoming the first man to stop Joseph Parker in his tracks, Joe Joyce believes that he should be viewed as an elite-level fighter. In addition to his now elevated standing, Joyce, courtesy of his victory over Parker this past weekend, is now perched in the number one position in the WBO sanctioning body.
Still, even with the 37-year-old becoming ostensibly the next fighter in line to challenge unified heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk, Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) would welcome a showdown against his fellow top contenders, most notably, Anthony Joshua.
Following years of Joshua claiming that Joyce is of no threat to him, the former Olympic silver medalist still has a bone to pick with the former heavyweight champion. While unlikely to take place next, Joyce offered a brazen prediction as to how their showdown would ultimately play out.
