Anthony Joshua’s dream of fighting in Nigeria could happen with Joe Joyce being his challenger.
Sam Jones, the manager of the British professional boxer said Joyce could become the mandatory challenger to Joshua and enforce a world title fight in Nigeria.
Undefeated Joyce will face Carlos Takam on July 24, while Joshua is set to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts against Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.
“There is a possibility Joe and Joshua could fight in Nigeria,” Jones told Sky Sports. “They are both of Nigerian descent so that could be huge.
“If AJ needs a dance partner in Nigeria, look no further. That fight would be something very, very special.
“Joe would relish the thought of fighting Joshua in Nigeria, but he also would to fight Tyson Fury in Las Vegas or in a stadium in the UK.”
