Dillian Whyte: Joe Joyce Looked Terrible - I Would Destroy Him!

The Bodysnatcher Is Less Than Impressed With His Heavyweight Counterpart.

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

Joe Joyce has enjoyed what can only be described as a terrific beginning to his fledgling professional career. After all, unless you are Vasyl Lomachenko there aren't many who can boast to have a major title around their waist after only a handful of fights. Joyce claiming the Heavyweight Championship of the Commonwealth in his last fight, destroying Lenroy Thomas in just two short rounds. 

BUT, and there is a big but ladies and gentleman. Whilst Joyce has his fair share of plaudits for his achievement, and rightly so, after all that is no small feat. There are many in the boxing community and fans around the world that have not been short of jabbing criticism into the face of the Rio Olympian. 

On one hand, you have a fighter like fellow heavyweight, David Allen lauding his divisional rival. Then, on the other hand, you have the ever vocal Dillian Whyte who shall we say has been less than complimentary.

"He was terrible. He's got no defence and no power," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"He's got a good engine and a decent boxing brain but he leads with his head. Anyone who's a clever fighter will clip him because his head, and his chin, are up. Throw a big overhand right or a left hook, and you'll do him. If Joyce got in the ring with me, I would destroy him."

Whyte is not impressed in the slightest at the very thought that Joyce thinks he is on the same level as him. Going as far as to say that he believes that Joyce's delay in entering the professional ranks was a tactical one. 

"Just like David Haye, Joyce is very deluded. That's why they get on so well. He's 32, he's turned pro late. He's making noise to get some big fights. Why did he stay amateur for so long? Because he wasn't good enough. He waited for the good amateurs, like Anthony Joshua, to go through. He just wasn't good enough," Whyte said.

Joyce is certainly in a hurry. He is 32 years old and while heavyweights do tend to benefit from longevity in the sport Joyce is in no mood to rest on his laurels. He has the promotional backing to make big fights and in all fairness jump the queue. With Hayemaker Promotions and of course Richard Schaefer in the background, he is in the right place to do so. 

But it seems as though Joyce may have one or two issues attaining the desired big fights he craves. Given that In the last few days, several heavyweights have rejected the idea of fighting Joyce - including Hughie Fury, Jarrell Miller, and Dereck Chisora
