Photos: Joe Joyce Stops Rodolf Jozic in One, Back on May 5

Joe Joyce set himself up for a potential showdown with Dereck Chisora after his devastating win over Rodolf Jozic in the main event of the Hayemaker Ringstar Fight Night — live on free-to-air entertainment channel Dave.

In only his second professional fight, the Olympic silver medalist claimed his second victim with a first round stoppage at York Hall. Now his promoter David Haye wants to see him take on former world title challenger Chisora in a blockbuster Battle of Britain bout on the undercard of his May 5 rematch with Tony Bellew.

The ‘Juggernaut’, described by many as ‘the future’ of the sport, started supremely against big-hitting Jozic with a powerful flurry of body shots. And then deep into the opening exchanges, Joyce’s right hook sent Jozic spiralling to the canvas to bring an early end to the proceedings. "I made sure I got a good warm-up and was straight in and ready to go," reflected Joyce. Haye, also satisfied with Joyce’s performance, added: “I was very happy. He landed beautifully."

Fellow Ringstar stablemate Willy Hutchinson produced a hearty performance to put Eric Mokonzo away on points and extend his perfect start to life as a professional fighter to 3-0. The Scottish teenager, 19, flew out of the blocks with a series of ferocious punches. The onslaught continued into the second with Hutchinson underlining his exciting potential, landing a barrage of heavy blows. Yet Mokonzo stood firm and traded back in the third when he shook the teen with a fierce jab to force a bloodied nose. Hutchinson, backed by a lively Scottish contingent, recovered well and forced the referee to dock his opponent a point for holding on in the fourth. Patience proved a virtue for Hutchinson as he made a breakthrough to knock down the local Bethnal Green fighter in the fifth. And ‘Braveheart’ Hutchinson eventually ended Mokonzo’s resilience to score a deserved, unanimous decision from the judges after six action-packed rounds.

Anesu Twala also protected his flawless record, moving to 4-0 following his 40-37 super lightweight points victory over Cardiff’s Rhys Saunders. The Zimbabwean-born Lewisham fighter, 26, lived up to his ‘Bad News’ nickname in a dominating display. Dean Richardson dispatched Czech veteran Jan Balog to stretch his perfect record to 6-0. The Middlesex welterweight looked a class apart and claimed a convincing 40-36 landslide with the judges. And Luton‘s Linus Udofia saw off late stand-in opponent William Warburton in a 40-36 points win to improve his record to 7-0.

this guy would beat hughie fury much more convincingly than parker, who doesn't throw very many punches. He needs to get to mandatory for the british.
