Although Joe Joyce only made his professional debut on Friday night, there are already plans to move him up the heavyweight ladder at some pace.

After stopping Ian Lewison, it is being suggested that Joyce could fight again as early as 17 December, on the under-card of the Tony Bellew v David Haye re-match at the O2 Arena.

Furthermore, if those who look after Joyce get their way, his second fight could be for the British heavyweight title.

Sam Sexton recently became the owner of that prestigious belt when he beat Gary Cornish, on a unanimous points decision, on October 6.

Sexton has a professional record that reads 24 wins and 3 losses. More importantly for Joyce?s camp, although Sexton is a durable fighter, he doesn?t possess the kind of punch power that suggests he can knock Joyce out, with Sexton having only stopped 9 of his opponents.

But, having just won the British title would Sexton be ready to put it on the line so quickly?

At 32-years-of-age, Joyce knows that he needs to push his career along at quite a pace if he is to become a force in the sport.

But would, if the match is made would Joyce beat Sexton?
