Rumours circling the boxing world suggest that Joe Joyce could be on the brink of a fight with former Heavyweight Champion Bermane Stiverne. Stiverne lost his WBC crown to Deontay Wilder on this day back in 2015 via unanimous decision. Stiverne is one of only two fighters to face Wilder in a contest and not be knocked out (not including their second encounter).
Joe Joyce vs Bermane Stiverne could be made as early as the De Gale vs Eubank Jnr undercard according to the rumour mill. Joe Joyce is highly tipped to make a dent in the heavyweight division and he will certainly make a statement if he does indeed fight Stiverne and come through victorious. Amazing when you consider Joe Joyce has only had 7 pro fights.
