Joe Joyce To Return on Haye vs. Bellew 2 Undercard

By Elliot Foster

Joe Joyce has confirmed his ring return.

The Olympic silver medallist made a successful start to his career without the vest and headguard last month, stopping former British heavyweight title challenger Ian Lewison inside eight rounds.

And Joyce, whose debut at the Indigo at the O2 was scheduled for 10 rounds, will move from the 2,350-seat venue to roughly 30 metres away for his next outing.

The 33-year-old took to social media earlier this week to reveal that he will be on the undercard of Tony Bellew’s rematch against David Haye –– whose Hayemaker Ringstar company ‘Juggernaut’ is signed to –– on December 17 at the O2 Arena, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Joyce’s outing on the Bellew-Haye II card will be flanked by another outing for Craig Glover, the Tony Bellew-managed cruiserweight, Rocky Fielding's meeting with Erik Skoglund for the vacant WBC Silver super-middleweight title and the Commonwealth heavyweight title rematch between Lenroy Thomas and David Allen.

Further undercard additions will be revealed in due course.

NEWS: WBC International Female Bantamweight Champion Ashley Brace will challenge Spaniard Melania Sorroche for the vacant European Title at the Merthyr Leisure Centre on Friday December 15th. The contest was initially scheduled for 9th December but has been moved to not clash with Welsh World Champion who defends his title in London that evening.

The event will be broadcast live on S4C headlined by Brace who is undefeated in 7 fights since turning professional in 2015 and has fast tracked her way to the top with several impressive performances, most notably a TKO victory in April over Alexandra Vlajk to claim the WBC International title.

Ashley Brace is delighted to be headlining a historic night for Welsh boxing:

"It is a dream come true for me to fight for such a prestigious title at home in Wales. These are the big fights I crave and I can't wait to make Welsh boxing history by being the first female fighter to win the European title."

Sorroche will provide the toughest test of Ashley's career so far. Her record stands at 13 wins with just 2 defeats and 1 draw and last year she lost a narrow split decision in challenging for the WBA World Title. Capturing the European title would put either boxer in prime position to challenge the WBC World Champion Yazmin Rivas in 2018.
