Joe Joyce took to Twitter to thank his fans following a scintillating sixth-round stoppage win over Carlos Takam inside SSE Arena in London to set up a fight against the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk set to go down in September later this year. 

Joe Joyce had a lot to prove going into the fight against boxing veteran Carlos Takam, who looked absolutely incredible for as long as the fight lasted. However, once again it was Joyce’s rock-solid chin, and his vicious jab that proved to be the show-stealer.

 

Needless to say, there’s a reason he is called the “Juggernaut” and that was on display as he stopped Takam with a vicious left hook that wobbled Takam. Several unanswered shots from Takam meant the referee had to step in to stop the fight. 

Can Joe Joyce hang with the elites of the heavyweight division? 

Joe Joyce has often been criticized for his slow movement inside the boxing ring, however, the Juggernaut has always proved the critics wrong.

For those who remember, that’s what happened when Joyce took on the bright prospect in the form of Daniel Dubois.

Going against a lethal knockout artist, Joyce showed incredible composure, following his gameplan and using his vicious jabs to break Dubois and eventually earning a stoppage win.

Something similar happened against Carlos Takam as Joe Joyce looked to be out of his rhythm, absorbing several power shots from a very dangerous Takam. However, once again, it was Joyce’s chin that held up to the test, as Joyce stopped Takam with a vicious left hook. 

Joyce has incredible power in his hands, and while he is slow, he lands much harder. He is huge and has great experience on his back to get better with rounds. Needless to say, his rock-solid chin helps his style. 

Joyce’s performance against the likes of Daniel Dubois and Carlos Takam shows that he can definitely hand with the best that the division has to offer, whether or not he is able to beat the likes of Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte, only time will tell.
