JOE JOYCE hopes Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk happens so he can fight the winner and leave damaged Daniel Dubois out of the firing line.
The 37-year-old Putney Juggernaut is as frustrated as any other boxing fan at the ongoing negotiations between Ukraine’s WBA, IBF and WBO champ and the goal-post moving WBC Gypsy King.
Tyson Fury’s showdown with Olkesandr Usyk is on the rocks
Joe Joyce is hoping Fury and Usyk resolve their contract issues and throw down later this year
Daniel Dubois could end up facing Usyk if the Fury fight falls through
If the undisputed decider happens on April 29 then the Olympic silver medalist – who lost to Usyk as a novice amateur – would be high in the queue to face the winner thanks to his WBO mandatory position.
But 25-year-old Daniel Dubois is ahead of him chronologically as the WBA need to have their mandatory first – even though Joyce handily beat his fellow Londoner in a 2020 clash.
Ahead of his April 15 battle with Chinese giant Zhilei Zhang, Joyce told SunSport: “I hope it gets done because it should keep things straight forward.
“In theory, Fury and Usyk will fight, I will beat Zhang and fight the winner.
“I have always got on well with Fury, sparred him a couple of times and he has always spoken well about me so I hope to fight them both at some stage.
“It would just be better to fight one of them for all of the belts.
“I know the WBA is the next mandatory to be called – and that’s Dubois – but I don’t think he is ready.
“I saw his last fight at Tottenham stadium where he was almost knocked out so he would get slapped up by Usyk or Fury!”
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
Fury has continued to move the goalposts for his historic showdown with Usyk.
And the Ukranian’s team are doubtful the fight will come to fruition.
Promoter Alexander Krassuyk told talkSPORT: “As Usyk said, the greedy belly is still hoping to find a way to pull out.
“We knew before and know it now.
“As soon as Usyk accepts a no rematch clause there will still be searching for another thing to find and pull out the fight.
“I tell you why. He bluffed and Usyk called his bluff. This is 100 per cent. He didn’t expect Usyk to accept 70/30.
“He was not in a training camp and we say the next morning the theatrical performance that he was pretending to jog and fight someone in the ring.
“It’s all about nothing. He’s not prepared and scared to fight.
“He will try to find a way to avoid Usyk for as long as possible.
“We don’t trust him, we don’t believe him.
“One more thing to know, when we started the negotiations, Fury’s side was the first to ask for the rematch.
“Fury were the first to ask for the rematch and we supported this.”

Boxing is based on the following skills:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- The body moves
There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches are more powerful than others. An uppercut, for instance, requires tremendous strength. A straight punch on the other side requires less power, but is more effective than other punches.
There are many combinations of punches. These are combinations that combine punches to accomplish a particular goal. A combination may have multiple parts. For example, a combination of a left and right hook will result in damage to the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He uses his arms, legs, elbows, knees, knees, and feet to do this.
Boxers must use their legs to defend themselves against kicks. After receiving a kick, he will raise his leg and move away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked in the side, he bends down if the attacker attacks from the front. If the attack comes from behind, however, he can stand straight up and block the kick by his foot.
Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. You can deliver an elbow strike directly or indirectly. Directly means you hit your opponent directly with your forearm. While indirectly, it means you hit him with another section of your arm.
Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. They raise their fists high above their heads and point them in the direction of an attack. They then touch the attackers fist.
A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.
A boxer should take control of an attack and respond with counter-attacks. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.
In order to box effectively, a boxer needs to establish a stance. The way he defends him will be dictated by his stance. It is how he positions himself and where he faces the opponent. There are many positions that boxers can adopt. Here are some of the more popular ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
The Body Movement
To win a fight, a fighter must move around the opponent. This involves changing positions, speed, rhythm and timing.
To increase his punching power, a boxer rotates when he throws a punch. You can rotate at different speeds depending upon the punch.
The timing of each individual punch affects the effectiveness or failure of a combination. A good combination starts with a strong punch and ends with a weak one.
