Joe Joyce vs. Daniel Dubois - CompuBox Punch Stats

Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce maximized his two-inch reach advantage by firing jabs that swelled Daniel Dubois' left eye by round four and had it nearly shut by the end.

A piercing jab to that injured orb caused Dubois to grimace, take a voluntary need and take the full 10-count, acts that led to Joyce becoming the new British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion.

This tense, tactical match was dominated by jabs, which comprised 79.6% of Joyce's total output and 61.7% of Dubois' -- far above the heavyweight average of 46% -- while also making up 78.4% of Joyce's total connects and 43.8% of Dubois' (much more than the 34% heavyweight norm).

Because Dubois mixed in more power shots (82-27) and connected more accurately in that regard (44%-24%), Dubois ended the fight ahead 146-125 overall, but the CompuBox round-by-round breakdown of total connects had the fight even at 4-4-2. Joyce was more active (59.1 punches per round to Dubois' 52.8) and led 51-29 in landed body shots but Joyce averaged 10.7 jab connects per round to Dubois' 7.0, and -- in this heavyweight fight at least -- the jab was everything.

Joe's jabs were more like power punches.

Only took 2 more jabs to finish him off? Dang

Dubois really screwed this one up, what let him down was lack of head movement and a plan b, every boxer/fighter ought to have a plan b, even a plan c where necessary, also Dubois needs to hire new coaches,…

This is interesting. DDD wasn't doing that bad. Hope he comes back healthy. But nerve injury around eye is not joke.

The way Dubois quit, I would have thought Joyce was washing him badly when it ended. Dubois was actually ahead in the stats and on the cards.
