MODERN-DAY TYSON-FOREMAN

LETTER OF THE WEEK

EVERY time I watch Joe Joyce fight, I feel like I’ve stepped back in time and am watching George Foreman in the 1970s. The way he moves and punches is so similar. His beatdown of Alexander Ustinov was no exception – it was just like “Big” George, albeit with about 50 per cent of the power, yet all the strength.

When I watch Daniel Dubois in action – while not so striking – I see something of a young Mike Tyson. I can’t put my finger on why, but I think it might be a similarity in the footwork, or it could just be a mannerism thing. Should Dubois get past Nathan Gorman, which I believe he will, there is talk of a clash between Joyce and Dubois. So maybe we will see a version of the match that was mooted many times in the early ‘90s, when people realised that Foreman’s comeback was more than just a gimmick.

I think at this stage in their careers, Joyce would get past Dubois in a barnburner. Had the Tyson-Foreman fight occurred post-Buster Douglas, I think George may have pulled it off with a Michael Moorer-style come-from-behind win. However, we will of course never know.
