Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce makes his pro debut against Ian Lewison. At the grand old age of 32, Joyce hasn't got the luxury of knocking over nightclub bouncers for a couple of years before facing decent opponents. Consequently, this is a tough debut for him against Lewison who has a good amateur pedigree and a fair amount of ability. Lewison has been accused of not taking boxing seriously and not keeping himself in shape. His last fight was a year ago against Dillian Whyte, in which he was stopped in 10 rounds but acquitted himself well, although he did look very heavy. Joyce was unlucky not to get the Gold against the Frenchman Yoka last summer, and has worked hard on his technique which has improved a great deal in the last few years. He still looks a bit stiff and upright, stands too square at times and is not hard to hit. Although he's not the fastest, I think he will still have too much movement and variety of shot for the lumbering Lewison, who nevertheless knows his way around the ring. As far as Heavyweight debuts go, this is about as competitive as you are likely to see, and should be well worth watching.  As far as betting is concerned, I don't expect an upset, but this is a genuine contest and better prices might well be available as the fight goes on.

yup, on Dave. evening Des. do you have a running order for this?
Report Crisp77 October 20, 2017 9:16 PM BST
Good summary. This is 10 rounds and the loss to Whyte was a corner pull out. Good tip to get some in running value.

maybe a bit premarure with the stoppage, but the guy has lost about 12 out of 15, so it was only going one way.
