Joe Joyce Targets April Return Following Wrist Injury
WBO top-ranked heavyweight Joy Joyce (13-0 12 KOs) is excited to resume boxing training in a few weeks as he is recovering from a wrist injury.
“I am looking to fight sometime in April and there are some great potential fights for me for this one, which is something to look forward to,” he said in a recent interview with Ring TV.
“I will be back punching soon in about six weeks and this will still be a huge year for me.”
Joyce last boxed Carlos Takam at Wembley in July 2021.
The unbeaten heavyweight stopped Takam in the sixth round. He has admitted that Takam was not an easy opponent, but he is satisfied with his technical approach to the fight.
“I feel it was a good performance against Takam, although he landed some good shots that didn’t seem to faze me,” Joyce said.
“I was kind of working out his timing and stuff and landing when I could while trying to avoid or block most of his looping shots that were coming over the top.”
Joyce heaped praises on his revered coach Ismael Salas for helping him become improve his skills.
“He brings me on a lot and from the start of my professional career he installed in me the fundamentals and biomechanics of boxing,” the boxing star said of Salas.
