Joyce Wallops Wallisch, Nears Showdown with Dubois
Pictured: Joe Joyce

Earlier today at the BT Sport Studio in Stratford, London, TTR #12 ranked heavyweight contender Joe Joyce remained unbeaten by demolishing Germany's Michael Wallisch in less than three rounds. The victory moves Joyce closer to a showdown with undefeated WBO International, WBC Silver, Commonwealth, and BBBofC British champion Daniel Dubois (WBO #3, WBC #7, TTR #11; 14-0, 13 KOs).

Dubois is scheduled to defend the WBO International title against WBO Europe champion Erik Pfeifer (7-0, 5 KOs) in Stratford on August 29. If victorious, Dubois is expected to fight Joyce later this year.

Four undefeated prospects, Chris Bourke, Denzel Bentley. Louie Lyon, and Henry Turner, added wins to their records on the undercard to Joyce-Wallisch.
