Tyson Fury is in talks to fight Oleksandr Usyk
But Usyk, 36, is set to face Fury, 34, in the heavyweight division’s first four-belt undisputed title decider.
It leaves Joyce, 37, primed to challenge the winner of the historic unification.
Fury named his former sparring partner as a part of his three-fight plan in 2023.
But Joyce’s mum Marvel has warned the Gypsy King to be careful what he wishes for.
She told The Mirror: “He’s going to juggernaut Fury.
“He’s coming to knock you off the throne. The Juggernaut is coming to get you.”
Marvel, who has been blind since childhood, has trained in martial arts and provides Joyce with his biggest motivation.
He said: “I get my drive to succeed from her.
“I’ve always been inspired by her determination – she doesn’t let anything get in the way of what she wants to do.”
Joyce won the WBO “interim” title in September by knocking out former champion Joseph Parker, 31, in 11 thrilling rounds.
It means he would inherit the full title should it be vacated or at a minimum guarantees him a shot at the gold.
And promoter Frank Warren has tipped a championship bout between Fury and Joyce to sell out Wembley’s 90,000-plus stadium.
Warren said: “Fury v Joyce is a fight everyone wants to see.
“It’ll sell out Wembley Stadium. With all things going to plan, I’d hope to see that fight this summer.”
