Joe Joyce has been confirmed as next challenger for British champion Hughie Fury

Joe Joyce has welcomed a British title fight against Hughie Fury after the British Boxing Board of Control ordered the heavyweight bout.

Fury suffered a points defeat to Kubrat Pulev in a final eliminator for the IBF heavyweight title last month and the BBBofC have now requested him to defend his British belt against Joyce.

The 24-year-old is yet to confirm whether he will return to the domestic scene after being denied a world title fight, with Pulev instead becoming the mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua’s IBF strap.
