Re: Daniel Dubois v Joe Joyce
To a certain extent I get the fast track routine with Joyce. He's 32, which isn't old, but isn't young. They feel he can go in deep and he's got enough pedigree to cope. With Dubois there's no real need of it. 20 years old and they keep peddling this million miles an hour belt every fight ruling the World in a heart beat approach. The issue I've got with it is once you're on it, you kinda have to stick it out no? Great if it pays off and you wipe the floor with everyone and everything. What if he comes a cropper? You've either got to potentially break the kid and say you're not good enough at that level, lets drop back, or you go again at the level that got you found out and hope for the best. You might have another Pele Reid on your hands.
What they do have in common of course is they've both battered Anthony Joshua in sparring, allegedly.
Joyce is weird as fuck to watch, he just looks horrible to me. He's got this kind of slow motion Naz/Augustus drunken master thing going on, with very little pop. He's going to have to work his tits off for every bit of success he gets.
Dubois is a monster at this point and anyone he lets him chin them is going to know about it. He doesn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed and I wonder about him mentally when the opposite corner doesn't immediately fold.
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
