Former WBC world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew was impressed by Joe Joyce's performance against Joseph Parker on Saturday night.
Joyce's determination helped him beat the New Zealander with a round 11 stoppage in what was a brutal heavyweight contest in Manchester.
Now the mandatory challenger for the WBO title which is held by Oleksandr Usyk, Joyce's ability to keep going for 12 rounds if needed and remain durable is something that has impressed Bellew and could put him in good stead against some of the division's biggest names.

"The amount he [Joe Joyce] can take and continue coming back is his greatest asset," Bellew told The DAZN Boxing Show.
"Outside of that he’s extremely fit, he moves very well for a heavyweight, yes, it might be robotic at times, yes, he might telegraph punches, but you’re that exhausted you can’t stay out of his way because he will just keep coming.
"He’s the Human Terminator. If you get into a fight with this guy, he will outlast you."
