Joe Joyce Confirms Ring Return Timeline And Eyes A ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Fight

Joe Joyce is making a comeback in 2024 and has his eyes on a ‘once in a lifetime’ fight should he win. This comes after two consecutive defeats to Chinese heavyweight Zhilei Zhang, both of which were by knockout. The first was due to an eye injury which forced the ringside doctor to stop the fight, and the second was due to a right hook that sent Joyce to the canvas face down.

Despite this, Joyce remains confident and is looking to get a win on home turf before exploring further possibilities. Speaking to Boxing Social on the evening of the Day of Reckoning card, he spoke of his desire to get back in the ring and get back to winning ways.

“I’m confident but it would be good to get in there, get a nice win on home turf, then possibly to explore other avenues that have sprung up in a once-in-a-lifetime kind of way,” Joyce said. When asked to clarify, Joyce replied, “You know, like tonight, maybe.”

Presumably, Joyce has his sights set on fighting Anthony Joshua for the first time or having rematches with Daniel Dubois and/or Joseph Parker. However, Dubois has named three other boxers he would like to face and did not mention Joyce.

Regardless, Joyce remains optimistic and is determined to make a comeback in 2024. It will be interesting to see what this ‘once in a lifetime’ fight could be, and whether Joyce will be able to make a successful return to the ring.

Ultimately, only time will tell whether Joyce can secure a win and get back in the heavyweight conversation in the coming year.
