At the York Hall, in Bethnal Green, London, last night Joe Joyce had the third professional fight of his career.

Joyce, who took the super heavyweight silver medal at the 2016 Olympics, didn?t take too long to finish off the tall but clearly out of shape American Donnie Palmer, finishing the fight with a knockout punch after just 35 seconds of the bout.

Palmer, who arrived with a record that read 9-2, with 8 wins coming by knockout, was supposed to provide Joyce with a tough test, but failed to land a meaningful punch.

Talking to the media afterwards, alongside his manager David Haye, the insinuation was given that Joyce would next be in the ring on the under-card of the re-match between Tony Bellew and David Haye, at the O2 Arena on May 5th.

It was also suggested that Joyce could be fighting Dereck Chisora with the money Chisora had previously asked for now being on the table.

Hopefully, that will be the case with Joyce clearly needing to meet opponents who can test him far more than what Donnie Palmer was able to do.
