Joe Joyce returns to the ring for his second fight in less than three months as he looks to prove he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Tyson Fury, Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
Joseph Parker v Joe Joyce Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Joe Joyce 100% believes that he is going to be a heavyweight world champion in the very near future.
I believe it, his camp believes it and all his fans do as well, but he never seems to be mentioned when it comes to the likes of Fury or Usyk defending their titles.
Joyce is undefeated as a professional fighter. He has won all of his 14 fights – 13 by stoppage – and has also beaten the golden boy in Daniel Dubois.
What more does Joe Joyce have to do to get some respect on his name? Victory over Parker and the WBO interim title must get him a proper championship fight soon.
This will be his toughest fight against Joseph Parker – much tougher than the Dubois fight when DDD had trouble moving his head from side to side.
Parker is a former world champion, and he will go to war. He has two defeats under his belt. His first loss saw him drop the WBO belt to Joshua, while his second defeat saw him lose on points to Dillian Whyte.
Since that defeat to Whyte, Parker has been training with Tyson Fury and has teamed up with trainer Andy Lee and has won six fights. His last two were brutal wins against Derek Chisora.
Parker will not take a back seat to anyone. He will come out all guns blazing determined for an early knockout.
Joyce is too smart for that. He will get himself settled with his feet firmly set and will jab Parker’s face all night. I cannot see a knockout in this one. I am backing Joyce to get the decision on points.

Joseph Parker v Joe Joyce Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions
Joseph Parker: “I’m going to be too fast. I’m going to be too quick. I will have better movement than he does. Of course, he’s got this jab, and he comes forward, and he has got a good engine. But I’ve prepared for that, I’ve had great sparring partners to prepare for that. Joe Joyce has had a great amateur background, he has that unbeaten confidence as a professional, he has a good engine, he takes a good shot, and he throws a lot of punches. But I’m going to beat him, I’m going to give him his first loss. I’ve made this the best camp I’ve had, I’ve trained hard every day, I’m glowing. You are going to see a more improved Joseph Parker in the ring. Andy (Lee) has added a lot more to my weapons. When you surround yourself with champions, you get a champion mindset yourself. There’s no doubt, no worries, because I’ve done the work. So, when the fight comes around this big lump (Joyce) is going to get a lump on his head.”
Joe Joyce: “I’d like to stop relying on my chin, if I’m honest. I would prefer to move out of the way of punches or block or slip them and counter. I am always trying to improve my skills and biomechanics and that’s one thing I love about boxing, you can always improve. I’m sure Parker and his team see a way of hurting me but we’ll see. We are quite similar in a lot of ways. He’s friendly. It’s refreshing to be involved in a lead-up with an opponent like that. But I am sure he will get a lot more serious when the bell goes because I know I will.”
