Joyce has big plans

IT appears Joe Joyce will have to travel to Germany if he wants to win the European heavyweight title vacated by Agit Kabayel.

Joyce has been paired with Germany’s former WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck and this morning it was announced Huck’s team have won the purse bid to stage the bout. The likelihood now is that the ‘Juggernaut’ will have to dust off his passport and set sail for a German city at some point in the near future, not that this is a concern for Joyce or his manager, Sam Jones.

Jones told talkSPORT.com: “We will fight on Mars, it doesn’t matter – a ring’s a f***ing ring.”
