Hrgovic has said before that he wants a fight with the winner of Dubois vs Joyce.

    Would a fight between Hrgovic and Joyce make sense?

    Joyce will possibly get a shot against Usyk for he vacant WBO title, so no, it would make no sense.

    Hrgovic needs to take the Bakole fight he turned down, and then we will go from there.

    YES. If Hunter does't want it, Hrgovic vs Joyce, and oh my Hrgovic would bust Joyce up.

    Flip Hogwarts needs to prove himself and then he can start talking about fighting next-level guys.

    Joyce is on the wrong side of thirty. He needs the absolute best fights he can get before that becomes forty. Smart of him to call out Usyk.

    If some sort of shenanigans stop Usyk from going on to face Joshua, Joyce could be a nice bigger name win for him than Chisora.

    He needs to fight next level guys to prove himself.

    He had gone about as far as he can feasting on his current level of competition.

    Right now I'd favour Joyce to beat Hrgovic, he's better than Dubois but he too doesn't move his head enough which is why when they fought in WSB he ate jab after jab from Joyce much like Dubois did last night and he simply couldn't live with the pace Joyce set and Joyce walked through every shot Hrgovic hit him with, it didn't look like he respected Hrgovic's power at all.

    Hrgovic being younger has time to improve but I've not seen enough improvement from him as a pro to think he has the tools to beat Joyce right now.

    He's talked about going the IBF route and so he should look to fight either Martin or Hunter, he should steer clear of Joyce until he's added more to his game.

    More like held his own before he even went pro with Wlad, hurt and cut Haye, and took Wilder's best, then got the better of him. That was when he wasn't as good as he was now.

    I think someone is scared there is another Klitschko like heavyweight on rise.

    Joyce is older but he has developed a punishing jab and a higher ring IQ with experience. Even his defense has seen improvements.

    50/50 fight.

    Hrgovic's style would suit him more than Usyk's.. That Usyk fight is all wrong for him

    Fighters on the way up are often better tested in the gym, than their first 15 opponents.

    Iverson was never in a boxing ring, you can't tell the other guy to take it easy, it's only practice.

    Something tells me you understand what I an saying but have trouble admitting it. Hrgovic is tested in amateurs, the world series of boxing, robbery of Gold in the Olympics, and in the gym vs the best in the division.

    Who's Hrgovic to think he's so special?

    Let's see him in with a gut check of his own before making that fight. Joyce has had two so far, Jennings and Dubois. Hrgovic has just had a bunch of easy knockovers and old men.

    I actually hope the fight gets made, but if it does the Hrgovic hypetrain gets derailed.
