Michael Wallisch insists he will scupper Joe Joyce’s plans to face Daniel Dubois and will target an unlikely clash with Tyson Fury.
Wallisch (23-0, 13KO’s) tackles Putney man Joyce on Saturday night in a ten round contest, as Frank Warren launches his second show at BT Sport Studios following the Coronavirus pandemic.
Joyce already has a rescheduled clash Dubois pencilled in for October 24, but his German opponent says he’ll be facing the British and Commonwealth champion, before looking towards WBC champion Fury.
“Joe Joyce is a solid boxer. He was a good amateur, but I think Dubois is already in his head,” the 34-year-old said.
“When I win this fight, i’ll fight Dubois in October.”
“I think both fighters are strong heavyweights. Tyson Fury is the name everybody wants and he’s with Frank Warren.
“Two wins and I’ll be fighting Fury. That’s a nice incentive.”
Wallisch headlines the second bill behind closed doors after Brad Foster successfully defeated Brad Foster on July 10 and the Munich man admits he’s relishing the prospect of fighting in the UK.
“I look forward to coming to Great Britain. I love the way UK fans celebrate boxing and the respect they have for the athletes.”
“I’ve been keeping in shape, of course. In Germany you couldn’t train in the gym for a long time, but now it’s fortunately possible again.
“I’m looking forward to the fight, even if the preparation time was short.”
