Tyson Fury vs Joe Joyce? We thought the Gypsy King had retired – so did Joe Joyce!
After Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte in front of a sellout Wembley Stadium crowd, the WBC heavyweight champion of the world revealed, reaffirmed and insisted that he would be retiring from the sport of boxing.
Fury has continually doubled down on his claim that he will be boxing no longer and is not interested in the outcome of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk II, which is due to take place over the summer.
Yet, Fury continues to be measured up against heavyweight competitors and he himself is entertaining the idea of fighting them. That has left us puzzled – and it appears as though Joe Joyce is feeling the same.

Perhaps it’s merely wishful thinking, but we find it hard to believe that Fury would be prepared to hang up the gloves when he could be merely one fight away from being crowned the undisputed heavyweight champion.
Whether he would accept a fight against someone like Joyce in the interim is a different matter but we’d be surprised if we were never seeing Fury step through the ropes of a boxing ring again.
