Joe Joyce Demolishes Rudolf Jozic in One Round

By Elliot Foster

Joe Joyce wasted no time in adding to his unblemished ledger in the paid code.

The 32-year-old Olympic silver medallist turned over in October 2017 when he stopped Ian Lewison nside eight of 10 scheduled rounds.

Joyce was originally set to fight over 10 rounds at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Friday, exclusively live on UK TV channel Dave, but it was downgraded to an eight-rounder.


‘The Juggernaut’ took less than a round to dispatch of the vastly overmatched German-based Croatian Rudolf Jozic, with a big right hand to the head which forced him to the canvas, but the timekeeper recorded an official time of three minutes and six seconds, including the referee’s 10-count.

Joyce is now set to return to the ring on May 5 at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, as part of the undercard to his mentor David Haye’s grudge rematch against Tony Bellew.

And Haye revealed that another “package” had been put together for Joyce to take on Dereck Chisora, the former British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion, on the card, though he did say that it was yet to be finalised.

Earlier in the card at York Hall, Willy Hutchinson outpointed Eric Mokonzo by 60 points to 52 –– with the referee deducting a point for excessive holding as well as scoring a knockdown –– while Dean Richardson and Linus Udofia scored 40-36 victories over their respective foes.

And Freddy Kiwitt beat Jumanne Camero on points despite a nightmare week.

Kiwitt was given a boost on the card after John O’Donnell pulled out of a fight with Tamuka Mucha, leaving his English welterweight title behind for Mucha and Kiwitt to fight for.

But Mucha pulled out with a chest infection, meaning Camero came in and ended up on the wrong end of a 78-76 decision.

I think Joyce is a better boxer than he looks, judging by his amateur record. He has a very awkward looking style. Quite ungainly and clumsy looking without seeming to have much speed. Hard to say how good he could…

If he goes in with Chisora he immediately has the best resume of all the up coming heavyweights. Hayes actually moving him kinda smart - first fight on paper is very impressive, 10 rounder, unstopped veteran opponent who has challenged…

[QUOTE=Tom Cruise;18491191]Sure but im not talking about the technique. Jabbing is as much about rhythm and timing as it is a about perfect technique. Joyce steps in when opponents dont expect. He takes seemingly random steps off to the side,…
