Joe Joyce believes he saw Daniel Dubois lack experience show and has sent out a warning, “The bigger you are built, the harder your fall”. Undefeated British heavyweights Joyce and Dubois are set to collide on October 24 although it has already been postponed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The fight he had with Richard Lartey, he got hit and panicked. I’ll be throwing big, heavy, powerful shots and we’ll see if he can take those.” Joyce said. “No. With pro gloves? Maybe. Bermane Stiverne and Ian Lewison were very strong. Joshua and [sparring partner] Martin Bakole punch hard. I was in the ring in sparring with Dubois when he was 16 or 17.”

“But I can’t get hit cleanly by him or I’ll feel it. It is, of course. He has been built up and looks amazing by beating low-level opposition. The bigger you are built, the harder your fall.” he added. “It was a good performance but he didn’t have anyone good in front of him. I was looking forward to him facing Erik Pfeifer, he’s a good boxer and I was interested to see how Dubois got on. Maybe I would have been able to take something from that.”

“The public thinks he’s going to smash me up. So I have no pressure on me because apparently I will lose. So it will mean a lot more when I beat him.” Joyce continued. “Before long, he’ll be at the top of all the sanctioning bodies’ rankings and everyone will be running scared from him. If it’s AJ’s WBO title, so be it.”
