Joyce has big plans

AFTER sparring ‘approximately 30 rounds’ with Joe Joyce at Big Bear in California, Tyson Fury – training for his impending shot at WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder – left the high-altitude gym to continue his camp at the Wild Card gym in Los Angeles.

There were some rumours that Joyce had given Fury problems, even dropped him. There were others that the 2016 Olympic silver medallist was simply not equipped to give his countryman the kind of workout required.

This week, Team Fury stated that the plan was always to spend only two weeks at Big Bear where Londoner Joyce, who takes on Joe Hanks on this weekend’s Wilder-Fury undercard, trains full-time under Abel Sanchez.
