Joe Joyce Excited With Al Haymon Deal, Plans U.S. Debut

Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce (5-0, 5 KOs) is making several big moves in his career.

Joyce recently hooked up with veteran trainer Abel Sanchez, and is now preparing himself at The Summit in Big Bear, California.

And now Joyce has linked up with powerful boxing adviser Al Haymon - who handles an army of talent - including heavyweights like WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, Luis Ortiz, Dominic Breazeale, Travis Kaufman, Gerald Washington, Artur Szpilka, and several others.


Joyce is now looking forward to making his debut in the United States.

On a promotional level, Joyce is handled by the Hayemaker Ringstar pairing of Richard Schaefer and David Haye.  

“I am delighted to announce my management company, S-Jam Boxing, and I have teamed up with Al Haymon,” he wrote on social media. “I am excited to now have Al advising me in my career. My US debut will be announced imminently… The Juggernaut is coming!”

Joyce, who is from the UK, is also very pleased to be working with Sanchez in Big Bear. Sanchez is best known as being the head trainer of unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and former unified champion Murat Gassiev.

"It's very remote, up in the mountains, with pine trees everywhere. There's not much going on. There's nice weather, lakes and altitude so running here is very tough. It was a massive decision, and I will have to adjust," Joyce told Sky Sports.

"I'm part of a team again. We get up at 6am and run together, doing sit-ups in the mountains. GGG is there, helping and inspiring us. He has been stitching me up by giving me the heaviest weights! He has been really welcoming. He is a really nice guy. Similarly to me, he is a nice guy outside the ring but is not a nice guy inside the ring."

[QUOTE=James Hunt;19026881]Why is this signature with "advisor" Al needed in any way? Aren't promotors those who make fight deals? And he already has a promoter. Sounds "swampy" to me.[/QUOTE] and who do promoters make the fight deal with?

It's apparent that Joyce has no intention of defending his Commonwealth title, so why not relinquish & let someone else have a shot? Junior Fa, Nathan Gorman, Simon Kean, Daniel Dubois & Dempsey McKean all deserve a chance. Maybe even…

A lot of Schaefer signed fighters are now starting to sign with Haymon. I think Balderas did recently and now Joyce. There was someone else as well I believe. Schaefer finding it difficult to get TV dates, or knows a…
