Dillian Whyte and Joe Joyce share a similar opponent on their professional record, Ian Lewison.

Joyce, the former 2016 Olympic super-heavyweight silver medallist made his debut seven months ago against Lewison. Lewison’s corner threw in the towel and Joyce won the fight by TKO in 8 rounds.

Whyte faced Lewison after 20 professional fights for the vacant BBBofC British heavyweight title. Whyte stopped Brixton rival, Ian Lewison in the 10th round to win the fight and be crowned British champion.

Joe Joyce manager Sam Jones was impressed by his boxer’s debut and wanted fans not to forget the difference between Whyte and Joyce when they faced Ian Lewison.

He told Ringnews24.com:

“He’s fought Ian Lewison and before that fight, I don’t want to make excuses, but he did have an issue with one of his arms. He was close to being pulled out of the fight. But he still got rid of him quicker than what Dillian Whyte did. So people can’t forget that.”

Dillian Whyte, in an interview today with Sky Sports threatened to “destroy” the ‘juggernaut’, if they got in the ring together.

Manager, Sam Jones revealed to Ringnews24 that Joyce would take the fight instantly.

“Dillian Whyte, today said: ‘he’s not very good and he’d smash Joe up’ and it’s a fight Joe would take instantly, in his next fight, if it was offered.

Jones has a lot of respect for what Whyte has achieved.

“Dillian Whyte, I really respect him. He’s thrown some insults this way to Joe this morning – I think that’s a great fight.

“Dillian Whyte has done it the hard way. He’s gone there and mixed it with Joshua and gave a very good account of himself. He’s been knocked out but he’s done really well. He beat Robert Helenius, he’s just knocked out Lucas Browne and he’s done really well and done it the hard way.

“Credit to someone like Dillian Whyte, but I think Joe would beat him. “
