Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker Match Events & How it Unfolded?
In the third round, the battle began to shape up as Parker got out to a strong start, using his jab and landing some powerful blows, but Joyce just kept advancing. Parker repeatedly hit Joyce with his powerful left, but Joyce remained unmoved and gave no indication that he felt the impact of his opponent’s blows. Joyce returned each punch from Parker with a retaliatory strike of his own, frequently with a huge right hand or a chopping short shot. The best Parker had to offer—hard left hooks in the fourth and a huge swinging right in the fifth—were brushed aside by Joyce.
In the sixth round, Joyce abruptly ramped up the pace, possibly thinking he could handle anything Parker threw at him. Parker was caught in a corner, and Joyce unloaded. In the seventh round, the Olympian again slashed Parker’s nose, then he cut himself severely above the right eye. As he kept touching his eye during the eighth round, Parker’s eye was obviously troubling him. In the eleventh round, Joyce then unleashed his whole arsenal and defeated his opponent. Parker missed the count, ending a spectacular contest.
Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker Post-match Reactions & Next Fight for Joyce
During the post-match interview, Joyce praised Parker’s fight quality, which forced Joyce to dig down deep in multiple rounds and unleash everything he had. With this loss, Parker suffered his first knockout loss of his illustrious career.
Following his victory, Joyce was named the WBO’s interim champion, making him Oleksandr Usyk’s mandatory challenger. When calling for a showdown with the unified champion after the fight, Joyce made it abundantly clear what he wants to happen next. However, Usyk vs Joyce won’t happen soon as fighting Fury and unifying the heavyweight titles is the top priority for Usyk right now.
