Joe Joyce, according to Tyson Fury, is a tougher challenger to his WBC heavyweight title than long-time rival Anthony Joshua.

Fury and Joshua were scheduled to fight earlier this year, but the fight was cancelled after an arbitrator ruled in favour of Deontay Wilder’s trilogy with the Gispy King, which Fury went on to win by 11th round stoppage.

Instead, Joshua faced former unified cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, but was defeated by the Ukrainian.

Fury now thinks that Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce is a bigger threat in the ring than Anthony Joshua.

Speaking in a recent interview, he said: “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, who is undefeated in 13 professional fights, signed a new deal with Frank Warren’s Queensbury Promotions in August.
