Joe Joyce gives a public display of his nickname “Juggernaut” in his fight against Joseph Parker
Joe Joyce calls himself the Juggernaut and rightfully so. Joyce is huge for a heavyweight boxer, as big as Tyson Fury. He carries incredible power, akin to even the likes of Deontay Wilder. And he has cardio for days, just like Oleksandr Usyk. Joyce is a mixture of some of the best that the division has to offer.
Fan reactions to Joyce’s toughness are definitely going to leave a smile on your face. A fan commented how he is desperate to watch Joyce and Wilder share the boxing ring, while another noted Joyce as legendary boxer George Foreman’s lovechild.

Joe Joyce’s chin is just ridiculous. He doesn’t even flinch when he gets caught with big bombs.
