Joe Joyce made history earlier this month when he captured the Commonwealth heavyweight champion in just his fourth professional fight.

Joyce, a 2016 Olympic silver medalist, finished Lenroy Thomas on the Bellew-Haye undercard from the O2 Arena in London, England.

“The heavyweights are the glamor division of our sport and to be able to capture this title is just he beginning,” Joyce said. “No challenge is too big for me and along with the team I have behind me, I am more than confident that we have just scratched the surface. I made room in my trophy cabinet for this title but there is a lot more space that needs to be filled. I want to thank my friends, family, fans and my team for supporting me. To them I promise – I won’t let you down!”

Joyce is expected to face either British champion Hugie Fury, Derrick Chisora or Jarrell Miller next.

“May 5th was the passing of the torch,” noted promoter David Haye, “Joe delivered in impressive fashion while capturing the Commonwealth Title. This is just the beginning of his amazing journey towards becoming the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world and I’m proud to be part of that quest.”

On the same night Hayemaker Ringstar fighters, Kody Davies and Money Powell IV also demonstrated their future intent. Davies, landed a devastating body shot to his opponent in the first round to secure the win. The much avoided super middleweight has certainly got the boxing fraternity talking, having sparred with the likes of Joshua, Groves and Sexton.

Davies also beat the recently crowned British Heavyweight Champion Hughie Fury as an amateur. Mentored by former two weight world champion Joe Calzaghe, he will next fight on the Hayemaker Ringstar show in June.

“The heavyweights are the glamor division of our sport and to be able to capture this title is just he beginning,” said Joyce. “No challenge is too big for me and along with the team I have behind me, I am more than confident that we have just scratched the surface. I made room in my trophy cabinet for this title but there is a lot more space that needs to be filled. I want to thank my friends, family, fans and my team for supporting me. To them I promise — I won’t let you down!”
