    i dont think Ortiz is old. he looked good vs kauffman and vs cojanu. and of Course vs wilder. still, i just believe joyce could be Special. he reminds me of a Young Foreman. what sets him apart is his great stammina. his punchoutput is crazy for a Heavyweight. add his size and power...…….and you got a real Nightmare.
    so i pick joyce to win. not because Ortiz is old…...but because joyce is simply better.

    Should be a good fight if it gets made. Joyce needs to take big fights asap due to his age.

    Not a fan of Joyce’s style / ability.. but his size n strength can win him plenty of fights including Ortiz

    That’s if Ortiz doesn’t take him out before Joyce gets chance to

    ortiz can box and could easily make Joe look like a fool. But Joyce has some unreal stamina and I can’t imagine him slowing down

    I would expect Ortiz to stop Joyce should the fight be made in the next year.Joyce should be fighting the likes of Ustinov, but as time isn't on his side chances will have to be taken.

    If you're in Joyce's team you'd be looking for High reward- i.e mandatory for wbc.

    Good fight though. I couldn't call it as I've not seen in Joyce in with oppoistition anywhere near the level of Ortiz.

    Ortiz has done well in his comeback since the wilder loss, I still think Joyce walks through him though

    Ortiz is no Usyk like but he’s a fellow southpaw with a strong boxing pedigree and look what happened when Usyk met Joyce...

    Lets be honest Ortiz and Usyk have nothing in common except being southpaws!

    Usyk has a high work rate pressing style and Ortiz is lazy and has a low punch output, if Joe was to start fast and make Ortiz work hard from round one then I'd see the fight being over mid rounds. All that Joyce would need to watch out for would be walking onto something stupid in the early rounds

    Not seen eithers fights at the weekend but Ortiz would brutalize Joyce with what I,ve seen. Ortiz is one of the most skilled operaters in the division. His counterpunching is class. For some reason tho they keep insisting on sticking him in with guys that run. Or bad style match ups for him. You start throwing shots at Ortiz like Joyce will he,ll make you pay for it. Wilders length and spoiling tactics beat Ortiz. He very nearly got the job done tho. You seen him doing things that we,re class in that fight. Its just hard to fight against a guy with a good reach advantage. With a hammer right hand who sits back and waits for you to commit to him.

    Joyce doesn't have that hammer right hand. He also fights pretty open. Ortiz will hurt him. I still see Ortiz as a good fight for Joshua. The guys a solid unit. Also good at countering guys that open up. His stamina joshua new measured approach and lack of ability on the front foot will beat him tho. Flawed cuban style.

    People are going to be surprised by how good Joyce is if this fight happens. He's going to make Ortiz look like Ian Lewison.

    Ortiz can't fight vs movers but would love to fight somebody like Joyce. He would stop Joyce in 3 rounds with the counter left hand.

    Risky fight but makes sense for Joyce. If we wins he automatically becomes a Top 10 heavyweight and will get the chance to be in some decent fights. Beat Ortiz, and have some Top 15 / 20 fights in 2019 and he will get his million pound pay day in 2020 against one of the big 3.

    I cant take Joyce seriously now David Haye isn't telling us that he is showing us something he hasn't seen before in the gym.

    Ortiz might be slightly overrated but I think at this moment in time he stops Joyce.

    Ha!

    David Haye fan but he said it about himself, Joyce and now Chisora :lol:

    I’d fancy Ortiz to beat him, Joyce too open and slow, plus Ortiz has a cracking chin...

    Bad style match up for him...hope he proves me wrong though.

    Hope he gets more than $40k this time...
