Tyson Fury believes Joe Joyce – and NOT Anthony Joshua – is the heavyweight division’s dangerman because unbeaten Brit is a ‘tough guy’, reveals Frank Warren

  • Tyson Fury is the man to beat in boxing’s heavyweight division at present
  • Anthony Joshua lost his last bout to Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham’s stadium
  • Fury’s promoter Frank Warren says he’s more worried about Joe Joyce than AJ
  • Joyce, 36, has a 13-0 record and recently beat Carlos Takam and Daniel Dubois 


Tyson Fury is more worried about the looming threat of Joe Joyce than he is Anthony Joshua, according to the Gypsy King’s UK promoter Frank Warren.

Fury is the man to beat in boxing’s heavyweight division after he dispatched Deontay Wilder in the final fight of their trilogy earlier this month, and much of the talk in recent months has been of a future bout with Joshua.

But Warren believes that Fury is more worried about Joyce than he is AJ, with the 36-year-old holding a 13-0 record and some big ambitions.

‘I was talking to Tyson about him,’ Warren told Sky Sports. ‘Tyson said that he’s the best one out there. That’s what Tyson’s opinion was.

‘Can he go all the way? Yes he can. He’s got a good ticker, a big heart. He’s strong, he walks forwards, he is the “Juggernaut”. 

‘Whoever he’s in there with, you know they will have a problem getting rid of him. He’s a tough guy. He can fight a bit. He can punch.’

Joyce is unbeaten, and most recently dispatched Carlos Takam at Wembley Arena in July. Before that, he beat rival Daniel Dubois in the Battle of the Brits.  

Joshua, meanwhile, is reeling from another defeat – this time to Ukrainian Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Having already previously been beaten by Andy Ruiz Jr, AJ’s legacy is now tarnished and many believe Fury would have little trouble beating him.
