‘He couldn’t hit me with a handful of rice’ – Tyson Fury claims Joe Joyce wouldn’t land a punch if pair fought 12 rounds

, ‘He couldn’t hit me with a handful of rice’ – Tyson Fury claims Joe Joyce wouldn’t land a punch if pair fought 12 rounds

TYSON FURY reckons Joe Joyce wouldn’t land a single punch if they fought for 12 rounds.

Responding to Joyce calling him out, the Gypsy King claimed Joseph Parker’s conqueror couldn’t even “hit me with a “f***ing handful of rice”.

Joe Joyce stunned Joseph Parker with a KO win but Tyson Fury insists his fellow Brit wouldn’t him once if they met

Tyson Fury claims he would be far too elusive for heavyweight rival Joe Joyce

But Fury still believes Joyce would beat Anthony Joshua and world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Joyce’s granite chin was again the foundation on his way to stopping ex-champ Parker after 11 rounds in Manchester on Saturday.

But it could be The Unputdownable vs the Untouchable if Fury is right about how a bout with his fellow unbeaten Brit would go.

Fury, 34, told FrankWarrenTV of the 37-year-old Londoner: “He wouldn’t land one punch on me in 12 rounds.

“I don’t think he could hit me with a f***ing handful of rice.

“He’s a big man, but I’m bigger. He’s heavy, but I’m heavier.

“He’s a good fighter, but I’m the best in the world for a reason.”

Fury has given Joshua until Monday to sign a contract for their showdown, likely to be at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on December 3.

AJ has promised to sign and revealed he’s just waiting for his lawyers to “get the terms right”.

But after two defeats against Usyk he’d face a two-time heavyweight king in Fury who has no doubt he’s the finest fighter on the planet.

And in another jibe at AJ, he said of Joyce: “I think he beats Joshua, I think he beats the middleweight (Oleksandr Usyk). 

“He might have a problem with (Deontay) Wilder’s speed and power, and I don’t think he could lace my boots up.

“However, that’s not a bad thing, because all the people I’ve fought have never been able to lace my boots up, so there’s no shame in that.”
