Joe Joyce calls out Tyson Fury for all-British showdown after spectacular KO victory over Joseph Parker

, Joe Joyce calls out Tyson Fury for all-British showdown after spectacular KO victory over Joseph Parker

JOE JOYCE hopes his sensational KO of Joseph Parker convinced ringside Tyson Fury to sign up for an all-English slugfest.

The WBC Gypsy King had the best seat in the Manchester arena to watch 37-year-old Putney heavyweight chop down his New Zealand stablemate on Saturday night in the eleventh round.

Joe Joyce knocked out Joseph Parker in the 11th round

Fury and Anthony Joshua’s teams are meeting on Monday to try to thrash out a deal for a December 3 showdown in Cardiff – with Fury claiming if the deal isn’t done he will pick a different opponent.

Christmas would be too soon for Joyce to be ready again, but he hopes Fury comes through with a 2023 battle of Britain.

When asked if Fury or a rematch with his amateur opponent and new WBA, IBF and WBO boss Oleksandr Usyk was more exciting, Joyce said: “I want Usyk again but Tyson Fury reckons he is up for a scrap with me now.

“He knows it would be a tough fight for himself now but I think he wants it.

“I think he wants to fight me.

“Both Usyk and Fury are tough fights because they are both at the absolute top level.

“They both have different strengths and weaknesses but are very different fighters.

“Fury is the tall switch hitter who can now bang a bit. Usyk is the smaller man but he’s the quicker southpaw.


“They are both really tough opponents but fights that I want.”

Joyce shipped dozens of shots from the former WBO champ but smashed his nose and slashed a gash into his right eye, before the late left-hook KO.

Despite some very even bloody rounds, Joyce strolled out of the ring with barely a mark on him while Parker looked like the victim of a car crash.

And the 37-year-old west Londoner confirmed it’s the name of his game.

“The punches do hurt,” he grinned. “But I am tough.

“I am the Juggernaut.”

Parker threw the kitchen sink, dishwasher and tumble dryer at Joyce but could not put a single dent in him.

And the punishment the 30-year-old Samoan suffered back was, at times, hard to watch but he’s not ready to give up yet.

“I kept chipping away but it was a tough challenge when he is always in front of you and pressuring you,” he said.

“I will be straight back in the gym, it was just not my night but I will bounce right back.

“He is a very tough man, Joe was the toughest challenge of my career, every time I hit him he just kept coming back.

“He pours so much pressure on you, he is a helluva fighter.

“But I still feel I have a lot to offer boxing.”

Punching Techniques

There are seven types. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches are more powerful than others. An example of this is an uppercut, which requires tremendous force. On the contrary, a straight punch takes less power but is faster than most punches.

There are also different combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. A combination may have multiple parts. For example, a combination of a left and right hook will result in damage to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this by using his legs.


Boxers should use their legs to defend against kicks. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. If the attack comes from behind, however, he can stand straight up and block the kick by his foot.


Because elbow strikes inflict a lot of pain, they are very effective. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.

Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. To do this, they raise their fists higher than their heads and move their arms in the direction that the attack is coming. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.


A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.


A boxer should not be afraid to respond to an attack. This will allow him to gain distance from his opponent. Boxers should also keep their balance when counter-attacking.


In order to box effectively, a boxer needs to establish a stance. The way he defends him will be dictated by his stance. It defines where he faces his opponent and how he positions his body. Boxers have many options for stances. These are some of our most favorite:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Move your body

To win a fight, a fighter must move around the opponent. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.


A boxer will rotate his arm when he is throwing a punch. Depending on what punch is being thrown, the speed of rotation varies.


The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination of strong and weak punches will produce a good result.

Spare parts

Sparring is a form of boxing that aims to improve your skills. A sparring session is where a boxer trains both his mind and his body. In conclusion, the purpose of sparring is to learn how to fight and not get hurt.

In conclusion, learning to box requires dedication and patience. You need to train hard and long in order to become a better boxer.
