ANTHONY JOSHUA has been warned not to fight Joe Joyce – otherwise he risks being knocked out.

Mike Tyson’s first boxing coach, Hall of Famer Teddy Atlas, was impressed by Joyce’s 11th round KO of Joseph Parker.

And he predicted the 2016 Olympic silver medalist would be too strong for former sparring partner AJ.

Atlas said on his podcast, “If he fights Joyce, he’ll be knocked out.

“This man, Joyce, is too big, strong and tough for Joshua and too hungry for Joshua at this point in his life.

“He’s done great things, but he’s not hungry. As the great Marvin Hagler would say, maybe he’s slept in silk sheets too much now.

“It’s hard to sleep in silk and still get up at 5 a.m. and do rope work and then get in the ring with another man who’s trying to destroy you.”

Joshua, 32, has lost two straight points to Oleksandr Usyk, most recently in August.

But he landed shock talks with Tyson Fury, 34, after Usyk excluded himself from a unification fight with the Gypsy King.

Negotiations are ongoing for a WBC title fight on December 3 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Joyce, 37, meanwhile, remains an alternative for both British stars, although Atlas doubts AJ would take the fight.

He said: “Joshua would never get in the ring with him. This is no blow for him, he’s a smart guy.

“Joshua knows his limits now, so he’s not coming in with Joyce.”
