Joyce produced the best performance of his career to stop Dubois in the tenth round of tonight’s eagerly-anticipated all-British heavyweight clash and enhance his credentials for a world title shot.
The 35-year-old ended his younger opponent’s unbeaten 15-fight start to his professional career and claimed his British and Commonwealth titles, as well as the vacant European belt at London’s iconic Church House.
Joyce, who only turned professional at the age of 31 after winning a silver medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016, has now set his sights on a clash with Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk for the WBO world heavyweight title.
Meanwhile, Dubois was taken to hospital immediately after his first loss due to a horrible eye injury inflicted by Joyce’s stinging and consistent jab.
