JOE JOYCE and Joseph Parker have finally set a date for their big heavyweight fight later this year.
The pair were on a combat course over the summer, but contract negotiations fell through.
Parker has since signed with Boxxer and Sky Sports, while Joyce is still signed with Frank Warren and Queensberry.
But publicity differences aside, Joyce and Parker signed on the dotted line for a big fall fight.
Parker has not fought since a unanimous decision victory over Derek Chisora last December, while Joyce stopped Christian Hammer last month.
With both men after world titles, the heavyweight stakes don’t get much higher.

- A price for the event has yet to be set but the fight is expected to cost fans £19.95.
