WITH an Olympic silver medal and five straight knockout wins as a pro, it was only a matter of time before undefeated heavyweight Joe Joyce attracted the attention of big players in America.

Frankly, it didn’t take long. First, Joyce relocated to Big Bear, California to hook up with Abel Sanchez, a man best known for his work with Gennady Golovkin, and today Joyce announced a partnership with Al Haymon, as powerful as any man in the sport.

“I am delighted to announce my management company, S-Jam Boxing, and I have teamed up with Al Haymon,” he wrote on social media. “I am excited to now have Al advising me in my career. My US debut will be announced imminently… The Juggernaut is coming!”
