Wilder/Joyce

Frank Warren, the promoter for Joe Joyce, said he would not hesitate to make a fight between Deontay Wilder (former WBC heavyweight champion) and Joe Joyce (unbeaten). That’s assuming Wilder ever decides to get back into the ring. Check out the best new bookmakers for betting on Boxing.

Warren says it would be a great fight between Joyce (14-0), 13 KOs), the man who is setting the division ablaze, and Wilder (42-1, 41KOs).

After a knockout victory in the fourth round by the “Juggernaut” over Christian Hammer, Joyce seems back on track to a Heavyweight Title shot.

Joyce was able to take on Hammer’s right-hand attacks, but he fell Joyce four times to stop him in round 4.

On Twitter, people expressed their desire to see Joyce take right-hand power shots against Wilder as he did against Hammer.

After losing his fight against Tyson Fury last Oct, Deontay will likely make a comeback in the latter part of this year. It’s not clear who Deontay will fight for his return, but it is not likely to be Joyce. Why not? That is simple the history of Wilder is not to take chances. You have to figure he will come back and spark a couple of Journeymen to gran another big fight, or he will retire and call it a day. But you know how promoters are, so we will have to listen to Frank Warren say something is going to happen that’s not going to happen.

Warren told iFLTV that he had no problem with making the fight when asked his thoughts about Joe Joyce versus Deontay Wilder. Check out the best bookmakers for betting on Boxing.

“Absolutely. If it’s possible and feasible, it’d be no problem. We should try to fight that guy. It would be a great fight. It’s not a problem.

“Of course, it would if it landed. But can you picture Deontay landing his [shots] on Joe’s chin? It’s not a problem. Shelly [Finkell] may be able to help me.

“I believe he’s [Wilder] coming back with a fight sometime, I’m hearing. But I don’t know whether it’s true that he would be returning with a fight sometime in the fall in the States.

Joe fights on September 24th. We had been working on opponents before the fight. We are currently working on opposing fighters.

“We want to be able to announce something for him early next week and have it on sale. We’re trying to do that.

He had to clear his system of all the cobwebs. He was out of commission for one year. That terrible injury was his. It was a clean, complete wrist fracture.

“It wasn’t like he was afraid of throwing punches. He was doing what he had to. He needed to remove the rust from his system. He was clipped as he does in many of his fights, and he took those shots early in the fight,” Warren said about Joyce taking shots.

I don’t think either promoter wasn’t to risk a Wilder/Joyce fight, and it’s a shame because the two fighters’ shortcomings make it an intriguing battle. Joyce is 36 years of age and needs to strike while the iron is hot. A Wilder fight seems all wrong for Joyce, but if he can force Wilder to go backwards, he would have an excellent chance to win the battle.
