Joe Joyce powers to first-round victory over Ivica Bacurin


This was the third first-round knockout win for the Londoner

Joe Joyce secured a third first-round knockout win of his fledging career as he saw off Ivica Bacurin at York Hall.

David Haye’s heavyweight protege needed less than two minutes to floor his Croatian opponent with a left hand to the head following a routine combination.

Bacurin was a late replacement and caused no problems whatsoever as Joyce walked to his fifth win out of five.

Londoner Joyce, 32, made his significant size advantage pay and it now remains to be seen if Haye, who recently announced his own retirement from the ring, will look for a better standard of opposition moving forward.
