Former world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker suggests that Alexander Usyk will be the favorite against Joe Joyce, but urges not to put an end to the British boxer’s chances.
“In the Usyk and Joyce fight we have a boxer and we have Joe who will return to the ring after a great victory. He gave a really good performance. Nobody thought he would win against Dubois, but Joyce boxed very well, used the jab. He survived storm at the beginning of the fight and then came back and used his experience to win. For me it’s an interesting fight. They have different styles.
Since Usyk has boxing skills, knows how to hit and move, since he shook Derek Chisora several times, I lean in his direction, but Joe Joyce cannot be written off. We must take into account his last performance, dedication and desire to become a world champion. It will be interesting to see the opposition of their styles, “- said Joseph Parker in an interview with YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
