Joe Joyce Destroys Donnie Palmer With Big Knockout in One

York Hall, London - Hot heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce (3-0, 3 KOs), who stands at 6'6, collided with someone who is even bigger, the 6'10 Donnie Palmer (9-2-1, 8 KOs) of the United States.

The size of Palmer didn't make a difference, as Joyce demolished him in under a minute. At the start of the first round, Joyce started unloading with heavy punches. He landed a huge right hand that sent Palmer down hard on his back. Palmer got up and his legs were gone as he was using the ropes to hold himself up. The referee waved off the contest quickly - with the official time of the stoppage coming in at 38 seconds.

Joyce is scheduled to return next on May 5th at the O2 Arena, as part of he undercard to the heavyweight rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye. The Hayemaker is also the co-promoter of Joyce through a partnership with Richard Schaefer of Ringstar Sports.

As part of Team GB, Joyce won the silver medal in the super heavyweight class at the 2016 Summer Olympics, losing in the final on a split decision to Tony Yoka of France.

Joyce turned professional in July 2017 at the age of 32, signing with Hayemaker Ringstar.

At the O2 Arena in London in October 2017, Joyce made his debut with a TKO win against experienced former WBO Inter-Continental champion Ian Lewison (12-3, 8 KOs).

Joyce would make his next appearance at the York Hall in London in February, and he picked up a first round knockout over 25 year old Croatian boxer Rudolf Jozic (4-1, 3 KOs).

Haye is attempting to get Joyce in the ring with very experienced veteran Dereck Chisora, but the two sides appear to be apart on the money. Chisora has discounted claims that Haye offered him a high six figure some to take the contest. The two sides are still talking, but there is no word if the deal will actually come down.

Matty ‘The Assassin’ Askin, meanwhile, retained his British Cruiserweight title with a devastating second round knock out over Stephen Simmons. With a brutal left hook to the body, Askin dropped the Scot to stage a successful first defence of the Lonsdale belt he won against Craig Kennedy in Cardiff last year.

The powerful Blackpool fighter’s record now stands at 23 wins, three defeats and one draw, while 33-year-old journeyman Simmons is left to ponder his future in the ring.

"He was a very hard man tonight,” said victorious Askin after his win. "But me on my game beats anyone. Behind the scenes I was going through the uppercut and left hook to the body.”

Askin spent a gruelling 14-weeks in camp ahead of his defence, living in a caravan. But now the 29-year-old is looking to step up another level.

"It has been hard but you have to make these sacrifices,” he said. "There has been a lot of talk about me stepping up after this fight, so I had to put in a performance and I feel that I did myself justice tonight."
