    I’d prefer Joyce vs Dubois and Hrgovic vs Bakole but I’m not complaining if this fight gets made either. Joyce has a real chance against Hrgovic who hasn’t convinced me yet.

    Easy UD for Hrgovic. Joyce has gotten slower and worse the bigger he has gotten. Needs to get back down to 240 to get his movement and reasonable speed back. Joyce the blob has been an ill advised misadventure that wont cut it against top contenders. If Bryant Jennings almost beat Joyce, Hrgovic cruises to an easy UD.

    Chin and power plus both a little stiff and slow. Still, Hrgovic is better in terms of power, agility, dexterity and speed.

    Neither man has really knocked my socks off. I would think Hrgovic, but great fight, and may the better man win. Props to both for taking it if it is real.

    I told you Warren wouldn't put his bum feasting hype job in with Joyce.

    I think Joyce has got this, Joyce will just keep throwing and while hrgovic has power I just don’t think he will have enough to keep Joyce from coming.

    I honestly think DDD is a worse match up for Joyce

    Seems like Joe is stuck between a rock and hard place here.

    Joyce-Dubois
    Joyce-Hrgovic

    Either is a top match up.

    Obviously I predict the first fight will happen first.

    Both are with Warren, its a much bigger fight in the UK, and I doubt Joyce cares about the EBU belt

    keep in mind Hrgovic was just 20 years old when he lost to Joyce in the amateurs.

    Joyce is crazy. He’s British and will get a title shot as long as Fury or Joshua have a belt.

    I don’t see this one happening next. If it does, Hrgovic via TKO in 7.
