The former world champion sees no more prospects for his countryman.
Joe Joyce should not return to the professional boxing ring, but rather retire. Usik’s former rival and former world heavyweight champion, Tony Bellew, said this.
In his opinion, his compatriot does not have good boxing skills, thanks to which he can return a successful performance in the ring.
“Dubois was hitting Joyce as hard as he could, but the punches were just bouncing off him. Joyce was laughing at Dubois and making him suffer. How far can you get away with jabs and get hurt every time you get hit? That’s boxing. It’s if where it goes like this adding up. I’ve seen what happened to legends over the years.
I never thought Joyce would beat the British champion. The ability to take a punch is his main trump card. Without it, he is not higher than the British level. You won’t miss him. Joyce was not a man of remarkable boxing prowess. Joyce wins because he wears you out because you hurt him so often and you wear him out. What kind of plan is this?” Boxing Social quotes Bellew as saying.
Let’s remember that Bellew previously talked about a possible fight between Fury and Zhilei.
