Frank Warren thinks heavyweight duo Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois would knock out Anthony Joshua as he talks potential fight


Frank Warren said Anthony Joshua would be eliminated by Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois.

The 70-year-old, who promotes both Joyce and Dubois, believes AJ needs a fight against one of his men if he is to secure a future world title fight.

Joshua is out of the global mix after back-to-back losses to Oleksandr Usyk

Joshua has suffered back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk, with the 2012 Olympic gold medalist having lost three of his last five games.

And Warren said he would have to go up against either of his men in what would be massive house dust.

The undefeated Joyce is the WBO’s “interim” heavyweight champion after knocking out Joseph Parker in devastating fashion last month.

Meanwhile, Dubois, who was stopped by Joyce in November 2020 during their Battle of Britain showdown, holds the “regular” WBA belt.

Joshua had agreed to a fight to face WBC King Tyson Fury, although talks for the Dec. 3 scrap ultimately fell apart.

And speaking to Sky Sports, Warren insisted that AJ, who will not return to the ring until 2023, will have to face a top opponent in his next outing.

He said: “Now I can start throwing Daniel Dubois at him and Joe.

“If he doesn’t fight one of them, I think they’ll have a hard time selling anything and he can’t say, ‘Why should I do this? I’ll tell you why, he will become a proxy.

Before adding: “He is likely to be knocked down by anyone. I would put any of my guys with him.

“Any one of them. Joe Joyce would knock him out and Dubois would do the same.

Warren then claimed he believed Joyce or Dubois could face Usyk for the WBA, WBO and IBF straps if the Ukrainian did not face Fury in an upcoming undisputed fight.

He remarked, “We’ve worked really hard over the last few years in this heavyweight scene and we’ve guided our guys through different organizations and cashed in on it a bit, so I’m thrilled.

“Joe has done extremely well [against Parker]received great reviews from America because his fight made a lot of success there.

“It was a good fight to watch. He settled. Him and Tyson will be a huge fight, [Deontay] Wilder will be a huge fight, AJ.

“It will be released in February. It is really well placed. »
