    This!!! Do people just expect us to forget what Usyk already did to him?! Lol And that was a younger and quicker Joyce!

    Usyk is actually better now and is hitting harder

    No way, Joyce would have trouble landing and Usyk is sharp with those counters.

    Joyces engine and strenght gives him a decent chance though

    He'd wear him down eventually and stop him.

    Sure. He'll walk through him and get thoroughly outboxed in the process. Loses widely on points. Joyce is ridiculously slow and lumbering.

    A post from the edges of delirium.

    Fury is a big lad, and has become a very good, even slick, boxer. And he has the weight to lean on his opponent.

    He will undoubtedly be a narrow favourite if and when he faces Usyk.

    Joyce ?

    No, a different story.

    He was shut out decisively over five, a decade ago.

    He has improved since then, but so has Usyk.

    The speed and skill gaps are what will propel Usyk to victory over the very commendable Joyce if they meet in 2023.

    It could be close if Usyk has lost his footspeed. Probably 7-5 Usyk, but you can't count Joyce out. I like Joyces engine, but then again he might be too slow and predictable for Usyk.

    Usyk's style is all wrong for JJ, however Fury's style is exactly what Joyce ''could'' walk through.

    I know everyone will point to the world series fight as an indicator that there is no way Joyce beats Usyk, but Joyce is far better than he was then. I still think Usyk beats him but I think he would struggle a bit with this version. Usyk is a good fighter/boxer, but he's also an elite athlete (for the HW division), and he's older and slower. I think it would be a very competitive fight.

    Joyce already said he gets hit too often.

    Usyk on points but it would be great to watch Joyce keep going like the terminator.

    A while back I thought Joyce had closed the gap between him and Usyk since their fist meeting. A few years ago I thought Joe had a chance but he has slowed considerably in the last couple years and I now think that Usyk would be able to outbox him to a fairly wide UD.

    Big Joe can walk through walls

    Problem is Usyk can teleport through them

    That's what I'm talking about and what you're nodding your heads in agreement with now
