Joyce knocked out Parker
Undefeated heavyweight Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) knocked out former world champion Joseph Parker (30-3, 21 KOs) in the eleventh round to win the interim WBO heavyweight title in the main event of the evening at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.
Joyce worked the jab throughout the fight, and Parker's face soon began to show signs of punches from the British's front hand. Parker was also able to land his punches, but they seemed to have little effect on Joyce. Joyce was finally able to send Parker to the floor with a devastating left hook in the eleventh round, and Parker was unable to get up until the end of the count. The time to stop the fight is 1:03.
