Joe Joyce Parts With Abel Sanchez, Hires Adam Booth as Coach

Rising heavyweight force Joe Joyce has parted ways with trainer Abel Sanchez.

Since last year, Joyce had been training with Sanchez in Big Bear, California. Joyce had linked up with Sanchez after being coached by Ismael Salas.

According to Daily Mail, Joyce is back in the UK, training with new coach Adam Booth in London.

Joyce, 33-years-old and a 2016 Olympic silver medal winner,  has only had three fights under Sanchez's guidance.

Now he's being guided by the man who took David Haye to world titles at cruiserweight and heavyweight.

Joyce has a record of 8-0, with 8 knockouts. He last saw action back in February, when he demolished former world champion Bermane Stiverne for a stoppage win on the undercard of James DeGale vs. Chris Eubank Jr.

A statement from S-Jam, the management agency formed by Adam Morallee and Sam Jones, said to Daily Mail: "We are delighted that Joe is pairing up with Adam Booth.

"He is a world-class trainer that will continue Joe's development to the top, building on the excellent work undertaken by his previous coaches – the hall of famers Ismael Salas and Abel Sanchez."

Joyce is advised by Al Haymon, the founder of Premier Boxing Champions. He was recently ordered by British Boxing Board of Control to fight another British heavyweight puncher, Daniel Dubois.

Sanchez is the kind of trainer who studies the opponent and then tries to make his charge adjust accordingly, which has the major disadvantage of taking away the natural strengths and habits of a fighter. Miguel Cotto forgot his fabled…

Word on the street is he got tired of Sanchez wanting him to pander to Mexican fans like GGG did. Good for him. [IMG][/IMG]
