    Default Oleksandr Usyk v Joe Joyce

    Oleksandr Usyk could be ordered to fight Joe Joyce while Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury takes place, according to Frank Warren.

    The Hall of Fame promoter, who represents Joyce and co-promotes Fury, has revealed that preliminary talks have already taken place for Usyk vs Joyce.


    Ukraine’s undisputed cruiserweight king moved up to heavyweight in 2019 and took up his option as WBO ‘super’ champion to become the mandatory challenger.

    He waited his turn while AJ fought Andy Ruiz Jr and Kubrat Pulev, and is now due for his shot.

    However, Joshua wants to unify against Fury and the WBO seemingly do not intend to deprive fans from seeing a rare ‘undisputed’ fight with all four belts at stake.

    Warren told iFL TV: “We’re working on, at the moment, Usyk and Joe Joyce.

    “I think the WBO will order that as an ‘interim’ title fight so we’re working hard to make that happen…

    “The situation is that the WBO have said they’d like to do that fight as an eliminator.

    “We have no objection to that and I don’t think Usyk has.

    “There’s been some preliminary talks and we’ll see where we go from there. I hope [it will happen]. It’s a good fight.

    “And I think whoever wins it – based on his last performance, Joe’s looking really good.

    “If he comes through it, it puts the winner in a tremendous position.

    “The eventual winner of the two fights between Tyson and AJ will have to defend against Joyce or Usyk, or vacate the belt.”


    Regarding how he believes the fight would play out, Warren concluded: “I like Usyk, he was a tremendous cruiserweight.

    “The two [heavyweight] fights I’ve seen, Chazz Witherspoon and Derek [Chisora].

    “Joe is a naturally big man, Usyk has come up as a cruiserweight, he’s 34.

    “It’s quite unusual for guys to do it at that age. He’s not a natural heavyweight. He can probably still make cruiserweight.

    “To beat a big guy like Joe he’s gonna have to really turn it on in my opinion. You’ve got to fancy Joe to be the favourite in that fight.”

    That would be a good,interesting matchup.

    Usyk is quality, but he really is a cruiserweight and will always have that disadvantage against the super heavy giant. I doubt he will dope as much as Evan Fields did! Elite level skills, great engine, and cumulative power rather than a one hit KO artist. Good chin, as far as we can tell.

    Joyce is good too, though possibly not as skilled as Usyk. Long amateur career, though, so he has the fundamentals and good technique. Moves well for such a tall guy, and uses his height well. Again, good chin and not a huge puncher.

    Interesting fight for those of us that admire boxing IQ and skills. It has ‘points win’ written all over it, and it would be fascinating to see who nicks it

    Joyce really impressed with that telephone pole power jab, he couldn't miss and it's a beast! Both are well deep in ama experience and familiarity. Usky will not be a stationary target at all and Joyce isn't exactly will o' the wisp defense wise. Usyk in danger from opening bell to the final but think he takes a unam dec.

    That's cool. I prefer Usyk's choice of Wilder. He beats Wilder, we have no need to consider him ever again outside his only means to win: a puncher's chance.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    I agree with all of that. Usyk isn't Dubois, he won't stand still.

    Usyk beat Joyce over 4 rounds but I think Joe will win over 12 rounds. Joe has improved, will do better over the longer distance and I think Usyk is not as good with his injuries he has had and struggled too much against Chisora.

    I would hope Joyce has improved, he was an amateur. Every time a Brit is underdog for a title, you back them because “they’ve improved.”
    Don’t fighters from anywhere else improve?
