Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker POSTPONED as Kiwi boxer and Tyson Fury’s trainer’s wife is due with baby on same week

JOE JOYCE’S red-hot Joseph Parker fight is postponed after the Kiwi’s trainer stuck a bun in the oven.

The 2016 Olympic silver winner was scheduled to face New Zealand’s former WBO heavyweight at the start of July.

Joseph Parker and Joe Joyce were set to collide in the summer
But their dust-up has been delayed due to the imminent arrival of coach Andy Lee’s baby

But Irish mastermind Andy Lee – assistant trainer and cousin to WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury – is now expecting a new family addition around the same time.

The exciting battle between the Putney giant and Fury’s favourite training partner will now be pushed back into September,

Joyce and Parker were supposed to slug it out for the winner to position themselves closer to a WBC world title shot against the Gypsy King.

But the wonderful news for the former middleweight world champion means their battle has now been delayed by around a month and the hunt is on for a new victim for The Juggernaut.

Queensberry promoter Frank Warren confirmed: “We were all good to go for July but Parker cannot fight because Andy Lee’s wife is due with a baby the same week.

“Joe Joyce will now take a different fight in the meantime, we have a three-man shortlist and we hope to announce that fight very soon.

“As long as Joyce wins that fight – which we think he will – then we will make that fight after the summer when Andy and his wife have had their baby.”

In an interview with iFL TV, Warren added: “We’ve had to push it back now to September, but in the meantime, Joe [Joyce] is gonna be out.

“So we’re looking at a couple of opponents for him.”

He said: “Providing our man wins, then we’re on, we’ll do it, absolutely.

“Unfortunately it’s Joe Parker who’s not available.”
