YOU will fight Daniel Dubois for the British heavyweight title (July 13 at the O2) but were you afraid you’d miss out on this fight?
I did yeah, you’ve just hit the nail on the head there. When the Board mandated it [Daniel Dubois versus Joe Joyce], I thought f****** hell I’m going to miss out on this fight here. Because to be fair there are some cracking fights to be made between the three of us.
If I was in Joe’s position, I would do the same thing. Which leaves obviously the British title in limbo so I happily obliged.
