The heavyweight meeting is set to generate huge interest in Britain with Joyce finally landing his long-awaited world title shot against the man who has sung his praises for a prolonged period.
First up for Fury is a potential undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk in a bout that will tell us who the world’s best heavyweight is.

For Joyce, his next test comes in the shape of China’s Zhilei Zhang. Frank Warren will play a huge part in both events and the Hall of Fame promoter is hinting at an all-British heavyweight title fight later in the year.
“I was delighted last week to be able to officially signpost a proper banger of a heavyweight fight for April 15 when Big Joe Joyce goes up against Big Bang Zhang, otherwise known as Zhilei Zhang,” said Frank Warren in his latest column.
“Our big hope, of course, is that the Juggernaut remains on a collision course with Tyson Fury and a big summer date at Wembley. That is the plan if Tyson takes all the titles from Oleksandr Usyk and Joe does the business on April 15 in Stratford.”
