Joe Joyce: Chisora Was Offered Good Money, Rejected Fight

Joe Joyce’s third professional fight will come against Honduran Donnie Palmer at London’s York Hall on March 17.

The 32-year-old heavyweight and Olympic silver medallist has won each of his fights inside the distance.

And ahead of his next against a 6ft 10ins opponent, Joyce said: “I’ve made no secret that I am happy to face the most avoided names in the sport. Dereck Chisora was offered good money to fight me, life-changing money but he was not a man of his word. I’m ready to go to work and look forward to dispatching ‘Big Nasty’.”

Palmer (9-1, 8 KOs), 34 and who fights out of Boston, USA, responded: “I have watched him on tape, he is slow and one dimensional, I won’t be losing any sleep.”

[QUOTE=Tonyu;18531376]I don't understand professional boxing these days unless you are in brutal war why they don't fight more often. Some champions only defend twice a year you should defend four times. Mike Tyson in his first 2 years fought 28…
