Heavyweight prospect, Joe Joyce, will contend the toughest test of his professional career when he squares off against former world title challenger, Bryant Jennings, at The O2 on July 13.
Joyce is wasting no time in his search for world honours in the heavyweight division but knows that Jennings will undoubtedly provide him with his stiffest test to date.
“Bryant Jennings has been in very big fights, and he gave Wladimir Klitschko a tough night before he fought Tyson Fury”, said Joyce. “He is also probably Luis Ortiz’s best win.
“I respect Bryant for stepping up and taking this fight. I intend to send a statement to the heavyweight division on July 13, and it won’t be long before I get my hands on those big titles.”
Jennings, who has shared the ring with the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, understands the rewards which await him if he can overcome Joyce in London.
“This is a high-risk, good-reward fight. It makes getting in the ring worth it,” said Jennings. “I don’t mind the test. I don’t mind the challenge. That’s just who I am.
“I am the only one who can beat myself. Nobody can beat me. When I’ve lost, it’s been because of me, not my opponent.”
“I am ready to go now. The Oscar Rivas fight is in the past, and I’m ready for the challenge that’s ahead of me.
“After this, I’m coming after all the other UK heavyweights. They are the ones running the division.”
