- Tyson Fury is currently the man to beat in the Boxing Heavyweight Division
- Anthony Joshua lost his last match at Tottenham Stadium to Alexander Usik
- Fury Promoter Frank Warren Says He’s More Worried About Joe Joyce Than AJ
- The 36-year-old Joyce has a 13-0 record and recently defeated Carlos Takam and Daniel Dubois
Tyson Fury is more concerned about the impending threat of Joe Joyce than Anthony Joshua, according to Gypsy King’s UK promoter Frank Warren.
Fury is the man to beat in boxing’s heavyweight division after sending off Deontay Wilder in the final fight of his trilogy earlier this month, and there has been much talk of a future fight with Joshua in recent months.
But Warren believes Fury is more concerned about Joyce than AJ, the 36-year-old with a 13-0 record and some big ambitions.

Warren told Sky Sports, ‘I was talking to Tyson about that. Tyson said he was the best out there. That was Tyson’s opinion.
‘Can he go all the way? Yes, he can. He has a good ticker, a big heart. He is strong, he moves, he is the “Juggler”.
‘Whoever that’s out there, you know they’re going to have a problem getting rid of him. He’s a tough guy. He can fight a little. He can punch.’

Meanwhile, Fury sends Deontay Wilder to Vegas again and is the heavyweight to defeat.
Joyce is unbeaten, and most recently sent off Carlos Takam at Wembley Arena in July. Earlier, he had defeated rival Daniel Dubois in the Battle of the Brits.
Meanwhile, Joshua is dealing with another defeat – this time to Ukrainian Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Having already been beaten by Andy Ruiz Jr., AJ’s legacy is now tarnished and many believe that Fury will have little trouble defeating him.

Before turning pro, Joyce also became an Olympic medalist at the Rio 2016 Games
