Both heavyweights are promoted by Frank Warren.

Speaking to the Daily Mail on fighting Fury, Joyce said: “Yeah I’m ready to step in.

“I’m scheduled to fight Zhang first – that’s a massive fight – so I’ll do that first. Fury said he wanted to face me if he didn’t fight Usyk. Of course I’ve go to beat up big Zhilei first.

“It would be very easy to set up. We’re both with Frank Warren.

“He’s already said he wants to fight me, it’s a great fight. People are interested in seeing that fight.”

Reports this weekend claim Joyce is the front runner to face Fury this summer.

“I’m looking to be in some great fights this year and next year.

“It can be very frustrating at times, but things go on and fights happen, so let’s make the [Fury] fight happen. Please!”

Olympic boxing can be seen at the Olympics. International standards require that boxers use special protective gear. The eight rounds last three minutes each and are held over eight rounds. There are only two styles of Olympic boxing; Light Flyweight and Heavyweight.

The basics of boxing are:

  • Punching techniques
  • Guarding techniques

  • Combination
  • Rotation
  • Spares

Punching Techniques

There are seven types of punches available: Left Hook and Right Hook, Cross, Cross, Straight, Underhand, Overhand, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, and Overhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches need more power than others. For example, an uppercut requires great force. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.

There are many combinations that can be used to punch. These are combinations of punches that work together to achieve a specific goal. One combination can have many parts. A left hook followed with a right-cross will cause injury to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

Boxers should use their legs to defend against kicks. When he receives a kick, he raises his leg and moves away from the attacker. If the attack comes from the front, then he bends his knees to avoid being kicked on the side. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.


Because they cause great pain, elbow strikes are extremely effective. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly, you strike your opponent with your forearm. Indirectly, you hit him with another portion of your arm.


Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. Then, they touch the attacker’s hand.


Boxers who are subject to a punch to their stomachs, abdomens, or chests should bend at the knees to absorb the impact. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.

Boxers should respond to being attacked by their opponent by standing back and delivering counter-attacks. This will help him gain distance from his opponent. Boxers should also keep their balance when counter-attacking.


Boxing effectively requires a boxer to have a good stance. His stance determines how he defends himself. It is how he positions himself and where he faces the opponent. Boxers can take many different stances. These are some of our most favorite:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance

The Body Movement

In order to win a fight, a boxer must move around his opponent. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.
