Joe Joyce seeks another successful step up pro career ladder in Donnie Palmer clash

British heavyweight talent Joe Joyce (2-0, 2 KOs) continues his development in the professional ranks this weekend, as he takes on Donnie Palmer (9-1-1, 8 KOs) at York Hall in London.

The 2016 Olympics Silver medallist for Team GB has cruised to two consecutive victories since swapping the amateurs for the paid ranks back in October last year.

Following an extensive amateur career, in which he won Commonwealth and European Gold, as well as a World Amateur Bronze, Joyce signed with David Haye’s promotional roster.

The now 32-year-old is aiming to make a swift impact on the pro scene, with the hard-hitting former Olympian being tipped for the top after early glimpses at his potential.

With ‘the Juggernaut’ not shying away from tough tests early on in his career under the guidance of former heavyweight world champion Haye, he next faces a seemingly dangerous threat in Palmer.

The American-born challenger also boasts impressive feats as an amateur, having overcome the likes of former IBF champion Charles Martin and previous title contender Dominic Breazeale.

Palmer was also utilised as a sparring partner by Ukrainian legend Wladimir Klitschko ahead of that eventual defeat to Britain’s Tyson Fury in 2015.

In this interesting St. Patrick’s Day weekend match-up in the capital, Joyce will take to the ring for his third pro outing as the odds-on 1/100 favourite with Paddy Power to prevail.

Meanwhile, latest challenger Palmer is regarded as the 20/1 outsider with Betfair to cause an upset in London and hand Joyce his maiden setback as a professional fighter.

But Joyce looks more than capable of getting the job done once again this weekend in the capital, with the determined heavyweight prospect having already outlined future intentions.

The Londoner has ambitiously spoken of potential upcoming opponents in the near future, including the experienced Dereck Chisora, but he will first have to overcome Palmer on home territory.

Before Joyce takes to the ring, Matty Askin (22-3-1, 14 KOs) will contest Stephen Simmons (18-2, 7 KOs) and he is 3/10 with Betfair to triumph in his latest outing.

Meanwhile, his Scottish foe is 5/2 with BetVictor to have his hand held highest on St. Patrick’s Day fight night, on which Joyce is aiming to put on a show for his home supporters.
