Over 12 rounds does Joyce eventually walk through him and stop him?
Joyce is dangerous when he goes forward and unlike Joshua he would certainly take more risks, now whether that would be enough is hard to know...
I don't think so. Yes, Usyk is slower since his WSB days, but so is Joyce, his speed decreased even more. Both still have great engines, but Usyk is too slick for Joyce.
When you are considered slow and predictable even by HW standards, how are you going to get to Usyk?
The difference between Joyce and Usyk is that Joyce is a hyped British brand to temporarily replace the deteriorating Big Joshie brand until a younger hype-job can step in, where as Usyk is actually a champion elite fighter who has been fighting at the top for many years as opposed to avoiding the top fighters into middle-age to protect himself from being exposed.
People are acting like Joyce somehow just woke up from a ten year coma a few years ago and that's why he's heading towards 40 and still hasn't even fought Chisora. There are people like Price, Groves, Degale, Frampton etc., successful amateurs over there who have already had full careers and retired by the age Joyce finally fought a top ten HW in Parker (though past his best). I mean, don't pretend there are no opportunities for UK based fighters, particularly if they've been through the amateur system.
Joyce would have to be the most protected and least ambitious fighter ever if he's supposed to be a true 'juggernaut'.
He already got schooled by him.
...and people will FINALLY understand after he chins Zhang in 4 rounds and Fury belly bumps Usyk out of the ring in 2.
Joyce & Fury are not AJ, Chisora or any other euro bums. They are world level next gen super heavyweights and not a man born from their mother can defeat them. If you don't understand that then I don't know what to tell you. They make heavyweights from the past look like children.
Baby Joyce who could be hurt 240 pounds walked at Usyk who had to go full tilt to hold him off with agile feet and workrrate. Current Usyk cannot hold down 270 pound current Joyce and Fury won't be able too either if he doesn't use his feet and boxing...
Joyce Vs Fury is the biggest HW fight EVER. 540 pounds of 6'7" TITANS...but only true boxing fans can understand this.
The division just needs a quick cleanout from all the crap Eddie Hearn has shovelled into it. Zhang & Usyk first, no disrespect to Usyk because he is a goat cruiser.
Joyce is effective against limited boxers such as Parker.
Any skilled boxer outboxes heavy and clunky Joyce. Even Takam outboxed him.
The White Rabbit beat him once, and this time he knocks him out with his brand new heavyweight power.
No. Stylistically Usyk is the worst match up for Joyce.
Somebody who can match his output but has the speed and movement to beat him
Usyk runs rings around him.
Yes! and here's the proof!
OH WAIT ...
Hang on though, haven't they changed from those days?
Usyk has proven himself against a better fighter in Joshua and Joyce has slowed down even more. Rumour has it that Shakespeare can compose a sonnet in the time it takes Joyce to throw a punch these days. Usyk UD because Joyce is as tough as he is slow.
Joyce is dangerous, but being slow and one-dimensional he can't do much against Usyk. The guy is more of a hype.
If Usyk stood there for him yeah he would, but Usyk won't be there for him to walk through.
Joyce is fleet of foot
Next we will see him on Dancing with the Stars: Elimination Round. All the chicks that don't make the cut have to dance with him
No. Usyk would outbox the slow as molasses, Joyce, even easier than he outboxed Joshua.
