‘You are a glass cannon’ – Anthony Joshua and Joe Joyce trade blow on Twitter as talk of heavyweight clash intensifies

ANTHONY JOSHUA and Joe Joyce traded with each other on Twitter as discussion of a heavyweight confrontation increased.

Joyce is one of many hoping to put her name on the hat to take on Joshua if Oleksandr Usyk is forced out of their rematch.

The 35-year-old Ukrainian bravely took up arms to defend his homeland in the war against Russia, which means he’s not in the picture.

Joyce volunteered to fight AJ but his former teammate hit back and led to his first-round victory in the amateur team.

Joshua, 32, tweeted: “I boxed and blocked him for 1 round. I’ll do the same today! No change.”

Nearly a week later, Joyce, 36, who is usually tight-lipped, replied: “And @anthonyjoshua, you’re in trouble, where are all your belts?

“How does all that sponsorship and endorsement help? You’re a glass cannon, give up the act, you’ve been given everything.”

But Joshua quipped: “It took you 5 days to think about this…”

Joyce’s promoter, Frank Warren, brought the undefeated athlete forward to take on Joshua.

However, AJ has other Southpaw alternatives in the form of Otto Wallin, 30, and Luis Ortiz, 42, more suited to emulate Usyk’s style.

Wallin told SunSport: “I had a really good fight with Fury, taking him to the hospital with 47 stitches and was probably Fury’s toughest fight to date.

“If you look at Usyk and you’re trying to find someone similar to him, I’m obviously the best choice.

“They know that I care about the fight and I want the fight.”

Ortiz’s manager Jay Jimenez said: “Luis ‘King Kong’ Ortiz would love the opportunity to step up to the challenge of facing Joshua.”
