Frank Warren has predicted a classic heavyweight fight between Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker.
The fight was announced at Wembley Stadium during BT Sport’s Box Office broadcast of the Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte card last month. And while the two faced off for the TV cameras and later on backstage there is yet to be an official announcement. Warren told Queensbury Promotions YouTube channel that the deal is nearing completion.
“We’re quite close to getting this done. We’re just waiting for contracts to come back.”
Joyce’s promoter then went on to praise Parker and talk up the fight which has been mooted for this summer at Wembley Arena.
“They’re no ordinary Joes, they’re two very good fighters,” said Warren.
“Joe Parker’s shown what he’s all about. He’s beaten some good British fighters. He’s a former world champion and we know that Joe is undefeated. This has got all the hallmarks of a classic fight and that’s how I expect it to be. Styles make fights. Joe’s relentless style, walking forward, he takes a shot now and then to land his own. You know it’s going to be something a little bit special.”
