Joe Joyce says he is keen to rematch both Daniel Dubois and Joseph Parker in the near future.
Joyce looks to bounce back from consecutive defeats to Zhilei Zhang, when he faces Kash Ali on March 16 at Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, live on TNT Sports.
Both Dubois and Parker, whom the ‘Juggernaut’ previously stopped, impressed in December with victories over Jarrell Miller and Deontay Wilder respectively.
The 38-year-old admits he would be open to facing both men again, particularly Parker if he overcomes Zhang on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s clash with Francis Ngannou on March 8 in Saudi Arabia.
“Either of them would be good,” Joyce told Seconds Out.
“Especially if Parker beats Zhang, that would be a good fight for a rematch and equally Dubois is in a good place as well.
“So, it would be good to get back in and beat him again and take his position.
“So, there are options and big fights as well.
“I’m sure people want to see those fights.”

Joyce suffered his first professional defeat to Zhang in April, when the ringside doctor advised referee Howard Foster that the Olympic silver medalist was in no position to continue. Joyce would rematch Zhang in September, only to be halted in more timely and more brutal fashion in the third round.
The Putney man was faced with question marks over his future following his second loss to the China native, but insists he has plenty left to give to the sport.
“I guess styles make fights and he had my number,” he added.
“He’s a great southpaw. He’s been in the sport a long time. He’s achieved a lot himself.
“I’ve got obviously a lot more things to achieve in my career and I can’t let this stop me, because there’s plenty more fights out there.
“Especially with what’s been going on with the heavyweights, it’s a great time to be a heavyweight.”
