Following a sensational stoppage win over the unbeaten (then) Daniel Dubois, Joe Joyce has bagged several notable accolades.

Firstly, he has bagged the commonwealth, British and European Heavyweight titles. Apart from that, he is also reported to have extended his contract with Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions.

Aged 35, ‘Juggernaut’ Joe Joyce is one of the many unbeaten champions in the sport and looking at his recent performance, he appears to have just hit his prime. That said, he still has a long way to go.

Frank Warren, who has promoted the Briton for a brief period, doesn’t want to part ways so soon (at least not after such a big win against Dubois). So, he did what was best for his promotion by renewing the contract with Joyce.

Frank Warren has revealed that Joe Joyce renewed his contract with him when they made the Daniel Dubois fight. He said the deal therefore still has "quite a few fights to go on it". [@IFLTV]

Combat reporter Michael Benson has shed light on the issue by taking the news on social media, He has recently tweeted out the message, sending several fans into a frenzy.

Not much has been revealed about the new contract but it seems, ‘Juggernaut’ will accept a couple more fights before ending the renewed contract. Thus, Queensberry promotion might set up some more thrillers in 2021.

What’s next for Joe Joyce?

The elite knockout artist has already proven his worth and can possibly aim for the bigger titles next. He can face Oleksandr Usyk to cement his position as a mandatory title challenger. However, every heavyweight champion is currently booked for a fight.  Joshua will defend his unified titles against Pulev on December 5 and Tyson Fury will seemingly return in early 2021 to defend his WBC strap.

Meanwhile, Alexander Povetkin will defend his Interim WBC title in a rematch against Dillian Whyte soon. Thus, Joe Joyce has some time to figure out the roster and prepare before stepping up for the major tests.

If we think somewhere out of the box, a rematch with Daniel Dubois will also be interesting but not anytime sooner. Once Dubois regain his dominance with some wins, he can ask for another try against Joe Joyce.
