British heavyweight Joe Joyce is up for the biggest challenge in his professional career so fsr when he faces his fellow countryman Daniel Dubois.
The pair is scheduled to square off on October 24 in London, being postponed a couple of times due to coronavirus restrictions.
The all-British showdown has all the ingredients for an instant classic – both fighters are undefeated and both can end any fight in a split of a second.
Even though the Olympic silver medalist is the clear underdog in the fight, Joyce believes he can win.
“You just don’t know who is going to win. I think that when the fight was made, a higher percentage of people were picking Dubois, but that’s great because I can prove everyone wrong,” Joyce told British Boxers TV.
“He has been built very well by Frank Warren, he is explosive, hungry and he’s ready to go, it should be a tough nights work for me, but I believe I can – you know I didn’t get here by not having any skills and I just want to prove that I’m the best in the Warren stable and rise to the top. It’s going to be an all-action slugfest, that’s why everyone wants to see it.”
Both Joyce and Dubois are promoted by Frank Warren and victory in the fight will most surely mean a world title shot.
