Joyce woke up for the second and made a bloody mess of Parker’s nose.

The Samoan was whacking away at the Londoner’s ribs as much as he could but Joyce has freakish resilience.

Parker looked shattered and stunned in the third, one Joyce dig sent a stream of his blood spewing onto the ringside photographers.

But then he battled back into the round with a handful of flush shots that Joyce somehow shook off like they were nothing.


Parker scored with two cracking right hands in the fourth too, but Joyce didn’t even wince.

Somehow he shipped the shots and just carried on marching forward and throwing his own.

It must have been soul destroying to have all his best punches getting brushed off.

Joyce raced out for the sixth and smashed a right hand straight onto Parker’s broken nose.

The Kiwi was struggling to breath through his nostrils and having to gasp for air through his mouth.

Parker suffered a bad cut on the corner of his right eye in the seventh when he simply could not escape Joyce’s relentless abuse.

Team Parker did their best to close the gash but the first punch of the eighth ripped it open again and the claret was like a red rag to a raging bull.

Joyce was still getting punched back but he was overpowering and exhausting Parker in every clinch and slashing away at his head and body.

Joyce’s white tasseled shorts were pink by the end of the ninth and – while Parker looked like he had been ambushed by a gang of thugs – Joyce still looked fresh as a daisy, despite getting hit with dozens of big shots.

Parker looked finished in the tenth too but then dug so deep to land five left hooks right on the bell.

It was all action, thrilling stuff but only Joyce looked capable of scoring the late stoppage thanks to his super-human chin.

Then Joyce detonated a stunning left hook that sent Parker stumbling backwards and down to the canvas.

The brilliantly brave warrior beat the count but referee Steve Gray expertly waved the bout off to save him from any more damage.
