2019 has been a frustrating year so far as regards the heavyweight division.

The three big names of Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury have all avoided fighting one another so far this year and as things stand box on rival networks.

Boxing fans could be forgiven for being a bit disappointed by the whole thing in recent weeks.

Even contenders like Dillian Whyte have struggled to land a fight of note so far this year.

But now it is being widely reported online that according to the British Boxing Board of Control heavyweight prospects and undefeated contenders Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce of the UK are now set to collide at some point this summer.

Sure, it’s for the British heavyweight title, but the winner could easily get catapulted straight into the world title mix if they look impressive.

A superb match up between two unbeaten big hitters that deserve massive credit for taking this fight.

This is what boxing is all about — matching unbeaten fighters against one another in genuinely intriguing fights.

Dubois fights this weekend first (10-0) against Richard Lartey in London.

Joyce (8-0) has no opponent scheduled just yet but likely if Dubois wins this weekend it will be him next up.

A superb bit of matchmaking and a well needed shot in the arm for the heavyweight division at the moment.

A weight class that has experienced a very disappointing time in recent months.

Expect official news on the above in the very near future.
