It’s another world title fight for a Filipino as Joey Canoy (W15 KO8 L3 D1) faces former minimumweight world champion Nkosinathi Joyi (W28 KO19 L5 D1) for the IBO world minimumweight belt on December 16, 2019 at the ICC Hotel in East London, South Africa.
Canoy has been on knockout winning streak as of late, by beating Ryan Makiputin and Rodel Tejares.
Meanwhile, Joyi’s latest win was a unanimous decision against Nhlanhla Tyirha for the WBO African light flyweight title. Joyi has the experience advantage having faced former world champions including two TKO losses to our Filipino champion Rey Loreto.
Canoy could not contain his excitement on the fight.
“I’ve been training for two months now and am in perfect shape for the fight. This is my biggest fight. It’s an opportunity I will grab and I will do everything to bring home that IBO belt. Thank you so much Sanman for this opportunity”, Canoy said.
For Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil, “It’s another break for Canoy to be a world champion. I know he will give it his all to get that belt. For me, he is the best minimumweight in the country right now and has everything it will take to beat Joyi.”
