Anthony Joshua could fight Joe Joyce in Nigeria
Anthony Joshua’s dream of a fight in Nigeria could be aided by the emergence of Joe Joyce as a challenger, says Sam Jones.
Joyce could become the mandatory challenger to heavyweight king Joshua and enforce a world title fight.
Undefeated Joyce will face Carlos Takam on July 24, while Joshua is set to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts against Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.
“There is a possibility Joe and Joshua could fight in Nigeria.
“They are both of Nigerian descent, so that could be huge.
“If AJ needs a dance partner in Nigeria, look no further. That fight would be something very, very special,” Jones told Sky Sports.
