The fight against powerful Dubois was the biggest of Joyce’s career.

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 03:40 GMT on July 22nd 2021 at Betfair)


All but one of Joyce’s twelve fights in his professional career have been decided by a knockout.

A Joyce by KOT TKO or DISQ boxing betting option for Saturday is at 4/9* (odds recorded 03:40 GMT on July 22nd 2021 at Betfair).

As can be seen from the presented odds, the bookies are expecting this to be one-way traffic from Joyce.

35-year-old Joyce had not been given much of a chance against the rising young star that is Dubois.

But he outsmarted and outboxed the big man.


Carlos Takam Preview – Does Takam pose a threat?

Will Carlos Takam upset Joyce’s plan of making a run at a title down the line?

The Cameroon-born French fighter has plenty of ring experience but perhaps not so much of a threat.

In 2017 he had a Heavyweight Title shot against Anthony Joshua and lost that one.

A year later he was seen losing to Derek Chisora for the vacant WBA International Heavyweight title.

Since then, 40-year-old Takam has won all four of his fights, not having met anyone of note.

Taken is now on a 39-5-1 career record. 28 of those victories have been by a knockout.

In the match outright for boxing betting, the win for Takam is a big 6/1 underdog quote* (odds recorded 03:40 GMT on July 22nd 2021 at Betfair).

So in that experienced career, he has faced some of the biggest names in the business.

Carlos Takam therefore may not be the complete pushover that the odds suggest he is going to be through the early stages.

Interestingly, however, four of the five losses that he has suffered in his career were against familiar household names.

There was Joshua and Chisora as mentioned, along with defeats against Alexander Povetkin and Joseph Parker.

Takam is no spring chicken and Joyce will pick away at him. We would be surprised if this went the distance.

Joyce is looking for a win that projects him well up the ladder for a title shot. He will want to impress.
