Joe Joyce Gets the TKO Win Over Wallisch in 3 – Sets the Stage for What’s to Possibly Follow

Imposing Heavyweight contender 🥈🇬🇧Joe “Juggernaut” Joyce (11-0-0, 10KO👊) cleared his assignment today by finishing off 🇩🇪Michael Wallisch (20-4-0, 13KO👊) in the 3rd round, putting him down a total of three times in the contest.  This was Joyce’s first fight back to the ring after boxing went on a hiatus due to the coronavirus.  There were rampant talks about a big British showdown between Joe Joyce and 🇬🇧Daniel “DDD” Dubois, a fight that would feature two quality unbeaten Heavyweights.  Joyce now has to play spectator to see if Daniel Dubois will clear his tune-up hurdle against 🇩🇪Eric Pfeifer in 5 weeks.  If so, then it looks like we may get the fight we want to see.
