Dave Allen Recalls Getting Brutalized by Joe Joyce: “I Had Forgot Where the Train Station Was”

‘Juggernaut’ Joe Joyce will step up for an important test against Daniel Dubois in their upcoming square-off on November 28. Being two of the most dominant unbeaten heavyweights, Dubois and Joyce have been compared throughout their careers.

The comparison will finally meet its conclusion when they lock horns. It is no surprise that both the boxers have a fair amount of believers on their side. Taking note of their knockout abilities, several pundits have placed them opposite one another.

Since Dubois is younger than Joyce, age has also been a factor in their comparison. Umpteen fans suggest that Dubois will be more dominant given his young age. However, former heavyweight Dave Allen has recently shared an incident about Joyce that might shatter all the speculations.

‘The White Rhino’ trained with ‘Juggernaut’ for a brief period and the pair have also sparred together. That said, Allen claimed to have been troubled a lot by Joyce. Adding to that, Allen also said that he almost lost his memory after being hit by ‘Juggernaut’. In an Instagram session, Allen recalled the sparring session and sent fans into a frenzy.

‘The White Rhino’ said, “I once sparred Joe Joyce for 6 rounds. He hit me so hard and so often. I got ready, left the gym, and walked around for 20 minutes.”

Allen added, “I had forgot where the train station was and what day it was due to the spar. Then I came around and went KFC as I had missed my train, true story.”

Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois is a fight bigger than the titles

Although the unbeaten gladiators will fight for the British and European heavyweight straps, they will also put their clean records at stake. ‘Dynamite’ Dubois is an elite puncher, and a lot of people already compare him with Mike Tyson.

Dubois is a serious threat to Joyce. Thus, this is a fight that will determine the upcoming road of the already staggering heavyweight roster. No matter who takes the win, it will be a total win for combat fans. Competing with the Tyson vs Jones PPV on the same date, Dubois vs Joyce is an important fight for the active roster.
