Joe Joyce is not known for his devastating power, but he showed that he packs a punch when he fought Alexander Ustinov.
The pair clashed in 2019 in what was just Joyce’s ninth professional outing, although he did have an extensive amateur career winning an Olympic silver medal.
The Brit stalked his opponent and in round three he managed to pin him up against the ropes.
At this point Joyce unleashed a thudding left hook that immediately buckled the legs of Ustinov and he fell to his knees.
Ustinov made it back to his feet, but he looked on unsteady legs and it was not in time for the end of the referee’s count, as the bout was waved off.
Meanwhile, Joyce pulled out his signature celebration by doing a cartwheel in the middle of the ring.
Joyce went on to record six more victories after his clash with Ustinov, beating fighters such as Daniel Dubois and Joseph Parker, as he found himself in a mandatory position for the WBO heavyweight world title.
This all came crashing down, however, when he was stopped by Zhilei Zhang in April earlier this year.
But, Joyce will have the chance to get his revenge on Saturday night when the pair fight in a rematch at Wembley Arena.
