Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce are raring to fight each other. The heavyweight maestros are on the come-up, and the winner of this will definitely take a big step forward in their boxing legacy.
As a result, the two share a very tense relationship. They will fight for the British, Commonwealth, and vacant European and WBC Silver heavyweight titles.
In their media appearances ahead of the fight, Dubois and Joyce appeared on a talk-show with Frank Warren and Sam Jones. While the interview was relatively bland, there was this hilariously heated moment between the boxers.
As Joyce was answering a question about Dubois, Dubois cut him off to point out exactly what it was that he planned to do.
“A young man who’s going to kick your c*** in.”- Dubois
“You’re not going to kick me, I’m getting bored of this. I’m going to beat you, I’m going to knock you out.”- Joyce
“Mate that’s not happening.”- Dubois
Dubois is the on-paper favorite for this fight, and with good reason. His wins have been nothing short of dominant recently. While Joyce is just as dominant, there is something a little more spectacular about Dubois’s approach to fights.
He has kept himself active, having fought 8 times in the last 2 years. This was highlighted by the 5 fights he took in 2019.
Joyce may have lesser pro boxing fights, but he is packed with high-level experience. He is an Olympic silver medalist and has heaps of knowledge about the sport. He also has a two-and-a-half inch reach advantage.
Dubois is on a freight train right now. While Joyce can stop it, the chances of Dubois adding his 16th pro boxing win are pretty high.
