Quiet time for big time boxing at the moment with the start of the Olympics.

Nice to see team USA getting off to a solid start.

Looks to be some great fighters in this year’s games.

Garbage atmosphere though. Very strange. Hopefully team USA can give a strong showing.

Some good action this weekend in professional boxing came in the heavyweight division.

Heavyweight contender Joe Joyce of the UK scored a stoppage win over Carlos Takam:

Great win for Joyce.

No doubt he’ll be in contention for some meaningful fights sooner rather than later.
