- Joe Joyce’s doomed heroics
Qualifying for the Olympic Games is a tough, tough business. GB super-heavyweight Joe Joyce put in some epic performances this year, only losing once in the World Series of Boxing, winning the inaugural European Games and scoring a bronze medal at the World championships. Epic stuff but Joyce is still without an Olympic place. At these Worlds a super-heavy needed to win the gold medal to qualify for Rio 2016. Joyce though is expected to qualify next year.
