Anthony Joshua may fight Joe Joyce in Nigeria

Joe Joyce’s manager, Sam Jones, says the boxer could fight Anthony Joshua in Nigeria.


Joyce is likely to become the mandatory challenger to Nigerian born British heavyweight champion Joshua and enforce a world title fight.


The undefeated Joyce will face Carlos Takam on July 24, while Joshua will defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles against Oleksandr Usyk 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.
