Joe Joyce on Fury vs Ngannou
In a recent interview with TalkSport, Joe Joyce breaks down Fury vs Ngannou and shares his thoughts on the upcoming rematch with Zhilei Zhang.
"Ngannou's first fighting style was boxing, he's come from boxing," Joyce said, as quoted by marca.com. "In the UFC there's a lot more to deal with, there's kicks and grappling and you have to be more well-rounded. But, if he's just focusing on boxing then he's got massive power and he's just focusing on boxing so he should be improving and doing well.
Fury is unbelievable, He can switch stances and all he's been doing is boxing, he's mastered it. He's got longer levers and range and he can pick him off and it's about Ngannou getting into range and working the body, but it's going to be hard to hit Fury, but let's see how it goes, hopefully, we'll have some bigger fights afterwards.
Joyce on his rematch with Zhilei Zhang: "I'm not thinking about losing, I'm thinking about beating his *** and getting back in a mandatory position. And it will be all the sweeter when I do because I'll be avenging a defeat and moving on with my career."
