Over the past few months, the only heavyweight fight that has intrigued boxing fans is the Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury battle.

Joyce and his team are in sheer talks to stage a fight with Oleksandr Usyk for the interim WBO heavyweight title. Moreover, the winner between the two will get his hands on the WBO heavyweight champ. For now, Joshua is the WBO heavyweight king, but the title picture at boxing’s biggest weight class is sealed.

Any and every contender in the big men’s division, looking for a title shot, will have to wait for a considerable while. This is predominantly because Joshua and Fury need to settle their feud before the mandataries can step in.

Considering that scenario, Joyce wants ‘AJ’ and ‘The Gypsy King’ to settle on one true winner so that the title picture is clear for other contenders in the roster too.

Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury – Who’ll become the face of the heavyweight division? 

In this fight, ‘The Gypsy King‘ will walk in with an immaculate track record of 30 wins and 0 losses. He is a sure-shot favorite in this collision, but underestimating ‘AJ’ might put him in a vulnerable position.
