Joe Joyce’s manager Sam Jones has revealed the boxer plans to be at front of the queue to fight the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury.
On Monday, Eddie Hearn disclosed that Joshua and Fury had verbally agreed a huge heavyweight unification showdown 2021.
Joshua may be forced to vacate the WBO belt to face Fury, as the governing body want him to face their mandatory challenger, Oleksandr Usyk.
That would open the door to Joyce fighting Usyk for a world title and, should he emerge victorious, then the winner of Joshua vs Fury could well await the 35-year-old.
His manager Jones told Sky Sports: “Joe would fight the winner [of Joshua vs Fury], why not?
“Joe has been on the Team GB squad, he’s an Olympic silver medallist.
“We want the biggest fights. If you’re not boxing to fight the best, then what’s the point?
“Joe has said it would be an honour to share the ring with Joshua or Fury. Whichever fight presents itself.
“We were called delusional when we said that we would beat Dubois. People said: ‘Dubois will win in one round’.
“But we got through and I believe he would beat Usyk as well.”
Joyce is still a relative rookie in the professional ranks, having only turned pro in 2017 after a glittering amateur career.
But having seen off one of the hottest prospects in the sport, Daniel Dubois, he’s now in a hurry for world domination.
“Joe wants big fights, he deserves it because he’s on that level now,” said Jones. “He’s ranked No 5 with the WBC and No 2 with the WBO.
“Joe is on the verge of a world title shot. We think, and he thinks, that he is good enough to win a world title.
“He gets stick for being slow but he has proven the doubters wrong – he has won two Commonwealth belts, WBC silver, WBO intercontinental, WBA international, British, European titles.
“He has won everything except a world title in just 12 fights.
“Look at his list of opponents – he has boxed just one opponent who had a losing record.
“Hopefully the WBO gets vacated, Joe fights Usyk then who knows? 2022, Joe against AJ or Fury.”
