JOE JOYCE is ready to fight BOTH Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury in December.
AJ and Fury are still in talks for a December 3 Battle of Britain at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
But the Gypsy King had grown increasingly frustrated with Joshua yet to return the contract.
So Joyce has offered himself up as an alternate option for either heavyweight star if negotiations collapse.
He tweeted: If Fury and AJ aren’t fighting then I’ll step in.
“December 3rd is tight for me @Tyson_Fury, but @EddieHearn you can give your new best mate @frankwarren_tv a call and I’ll take the 17th slot with AJ.
“Easy fight to make!”
Joyce announced himself further to the blue ribband division by becoming the first man to stop Joseph Parker.
It was a career-best win, which Fury watched from ringside and Joshua is sure to have taken notice of.
It earned him the WBO “interim” title, guaranteeing himself a shot at Oleksandr Usyk’s belt.

Usyk, 35, beat Joshua, 32, on points twice in the space of 11 months but ruled himself out of a unification bout with Fury until next year.
So Fury, 34, reacted by offering AJ an unlikely title shot in Wales, with talks ongoing.
It leaves Joyce, 37, momentarily on the outside, although he will take any of the three tops names, refusing to be picky.
He told SunSport: “The dream next fight would probably be Usyk, or Fury, or Joshua.
“There’s all the top names and they’re obviously great, exciting fights.
“I’m at the top of the division now in the elite level, so I will fight anyone.”
