Joe Joyce To Return on June 15 at York Hall

By Elliot Foster

Joe Joyce will be back in the ring in a few weeks’ time.

The Commonwealth heavyweight champion will make the first defence of his title when he dons the gloves again.

Joyce, from Putney, London, knocked out Jamaica’s Lenroy Thomas inside two rounds on May 5 at the O2 Arena in the capital to claim the rainbow honour.

And the 32-year-old Olympic silver medallist (4-0, 4 KOs) will put the title at stake against a challenger to be confirmed on June 15.

The fight, which will take place at Bethnal Green’s famous York Hall venue, is set to be screened on UKTV channel Dave as part of its Fight Night series and will be promoted by David Haye and Richard Schaefer on behalf of Hayemaker Ringstar.

Details regarding the opponent for Joyce as well as the supporting cast for the fight will be revealed by the relevant parties in due course.


IN OTHER NEWS: This past Saturday, Nicola Adams produced the display of her paid career to remain undefeated.

The Leeds lady, 35, is a two-time Olympic champion and will soon be looking to fight for titles after dispatching of her visiting foe in a round.

Adams, nicknamed ‘The Lioness’, is now 4-0 after referee John Latham called a halt to the contest with a second remaining in the opening stanza at Elland Road in her hometown, as part of the supporting cast to Josh Warrington’s IBF featherweight title challenge against Lee Selby.

She was in against Argentina’s Soledad Del Valle Frias over 10 scheduled rounds, but she set about her counterpart in the embryonic stages of the clash, forced her onto the back foot and didn’t let up.

Adams unleashed barrages of shots and having now beaten a former world title challenger will be looking to move on to more meaningful fights sooner rather than later.

But Mason Cartwright came up short in his clash with Darren Tetley.

The pair clashed for the vacant WBO European welterweight title and the end came midway through round nine after the doctor ruled that the away fighter, from Ellesmere Port, had suffered a severe laceration to his mouth.

Cartwright lost his undefeated record as a result of the defeat, slipping to 14-1, while Tetley has now advanced to 16-0.

It was a good fight until a rather unsatisfactory end, with both fighters trading leather in an honest showdown and it will be one that many will be wanting to see again.

Hope they can find someone who will bring him on. I also hope Haye can make this promoting gig work. He lost Hutchinson so the signs aren't good, but British boxing would benefit from having another promoter working the market.
