Joe Joyce has at all times been recognized extra for his in-ring prowess and iron chin than his trash-talking.
‘The Juggernaut’ is coming off a profession finest victory towards Joseph Parker final yr, when he stopped the person from New Zealand for the primary time in his profession, with a shocking eleventh spherical KO.
Subsequent up, Joyce will tackle China’s Zhilei Zhang in what is bound to be an entertaining heavyweight scrap on April 15 on the Copperbox Enviornment in London.
Zhang’s final struggle got here on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua 2, as he took on Filip Hrgovic, who’s broadly touted as a future world champion.
Hrgovic beat Zhang by unanimous determination, though many spectators, together with Joyce, thought ‘Large Bang’ deserved the choice.
Like Joyce, Zhang stands at 6 foot 6 tall and is an Olympic silver medallist, with a file of 24-1-1, and 19 KO’s as an expert.
Being an skilled operator, it’s unlikely that Joyce will be capable of get into Zhang’s head within the build-up and he actually gained’t together with his newest try at trash-talk.
Joyce was requested in an interview with BT Sport whether or not there’s an opportunity he loses his mood towards Zhang within the ring after they struggle and after he defined that he’ll stay level-headed, he tried out some hilariously awkward trash-talk.

“I’m ‘The Juggernaut’,” Joyce said. “I walk through the fires and I use my own flames to uh… heat up my opponents.”
Joyce then burst into laughter, as even he realised that kind of trash-talk wasn’t going to be rattling Zhang.
With that being said, Joyce went on to say, “It’s going to be carnage at the centre of the ring.”
And, it’s hard to argue with that, as neither man likes to take a backwards step, such that this fight almost guarantees fireworks.
