Huni targets Chisora, Joyce, Yoka

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Australian heavyweight champion Justis Huni (5-0, 4 KOs) has targeted the best European heavyweights according to his promoter Dean Lonergan. “We’d love to have a fight against Derek Chisora, or even a Joe Joyce or a Tony Yoka,” Lonergan told SkySports.

“It’s a perfect launching pad for Justis in the UK. There would be nothing better than him coming off the back of a Commonwealth Gold and doing one, maybe two fights up there as a pro against some big names.”

The Huni camp is also negotiating for a clash against New Zealander Junior Fa, but those talks have seemingly reached an impasse.

  • Dempsey Mckean , Australia’s world ranked heavyweight should be the next fight for Huni. Huni has not fought anyone of note and hasn’t really been tested.

  • All the fighters he talked about would beat him, it’s too soon for him to fight one of these guy’s after the opposition he has faced to date.

  • let him 20 fights before he considers this

    zero hope of victory too inexperienced its all hot air

  • Why is it that these guy’s mention opponent’s they know they haven’t got hope in hell of getting a fight with? Huni Vs David Allen, Fabio Wardley or David Adeleye could be fun contest’s, but even these may be a bit of a stretch for him.

  • He’s throwing out those names but personally, I think even someone like Chisora would maul him at this stage. He just got done with a retired football player. These are real fighters and he’s too green at the moment.
