UK heavyweight contender Joe Joyce who is now based in the US has made a big claim about lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury after sharing the ring with him for the first time in sparring.
Joyce has sparred some extremely talented fighters already as both an amateur and now in the beginning stages of his professional career.
Alexander Povetkin and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua spring to mind straight away.
However, Joyce claims Fury is even more talented than Joshua and is the most talented fighter he’s ever worked with thus far:
I am getting the best possible work right now, I feel better than ever sparring Tyson, making me a better fighter as he is the most talented I’ve been in the ring with, which brings the best out of me. You would pay good money to see these spars! #teamuk 🇬🇧 #THEJUGGERNAUT pic.twitter.com/MZTtIZEYAz

Slowly but surely it would seem the world of boxing is waking up more and more to the talent and skill of Tyson Fury whom after overcoming serious mental health issues, seems to be winning over more and more fans after previously driving some away years ago when he was going through his wilder (no pun intended on Deontay) times.
Fury challenges Deontay Wilder on December 1st in LA for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world.
