Although Oleksandr Usyk is the unified world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury thinks Joe Joyce is the toughest fight.
After beating Derek Chisora for the third time, Fury was joined in the ring Saturday night by Usyk and Joyce.
A clash with Usyk is the fight to fight, as it would potentially be for the undisputed titles, with the Ukrainian holding the WBA, WBO and IBF straps, while Fury is the WBC champion.
That being said, Fury thinks Joyce would present a tougher challenge than Usyk.
“People have been asking me all night which is a tougher fight, Usyk or Joyce and in my opinion Usyk is the more skilled boxer but Joe Joyce is a juggernaut.
“I think Joe is giving me a tougher fight than Usyk, one hundred percent.
“Big Joe, 6ft 7in and 19½ stone advancing towards me trying to tear me to pieces.
“Or Usyk trying to steal a jab, running around the ring trying to score a point here and there.

“I think Usyk is a very good fighter, I’m not going to take anything away from him.
“He’s the undisputed heavyweight champion, he’s the unified heavyweight champion, so he’s had a fantastic career.
“But I think I would do some work on him and I don’t just want to talk about it, I want to prove it, so let’s go.
“But, like I said, I think the biggest challenge for me is the great Joe Joyce.”
