Fury was forced to admit Joyce could do some real damage after watching him break down the former WBO Heavyweight champion, eventually knocking him out in the eleventh round of the eventful night.

Fury was impressed with his performance and even counted him a top 5 in the heavyweight division in his opinion. He said during the speech after the fight that he believes Joshua and Usyk will be bested by the “Juggernaut”.

“From a fan point of view, and a heavyweight champion myself, it was a very, very entertaining fight. Both men did extremely well, and fair play to Joe Joyce. He took out a very game, strong, fit, and willing Joseph Parker. He’s put himself in the top-five with that win in my opinion. I was impressed,” Fury said on his promoter Frank Warren’s digital channel. “I think he beats Anthony Joshua, I think he beats the middleweight [Oleksandr Usyk]. He might have a problem with Deontay Wilder’s speed and power.”

After his opinion on Joyce concerning facing top contenders in the division, he was asked, how Joyce will fare against him and this was his reply.

“He wouldn’t land one punch on me in 12 rounds. I don’t think he could hit me with a f***ing handful of rice. He’s a big man, but I’m bigger. He’s heavy, but I’m heavier. He’s a good fighter, but I’m the best in the world for a reason … I don’t think he can lace my boots.”

Daniel Dubois, Carlos Takam, Bryant Jennings, Bermane Stiverne, Christian Hammer, and now Joseph Parker are former world Champions, Contenders and big name prospects presently on Joyce trail as he looks to secure his first world title shot.
