JOE JOYCE is unafraid to travel. He’s been to America both to fight and to train with Abel Sanchez in California. But he will return to England to link up with new trainer Adam Booth and new promoter Frank Warren. It’s both a return and a new start.
“I think I’ve found my permanent home now. I picked up things from all my coaches and going forward that’s obviously going to benefit my career. But now I’m working on a lot of head movement and footwork. I’m only two, three weeks in but I’m doing a lot more pads than I was doing in Big Bear,” Joyce said. “I think he [Booth] likes generating power from the legs and after I’ve finished punches I’m learning to come off at angles so I don’t get hit with silly shots.
“It’s more that I’m adding more tools to the toolbox and more weapons to the armoury. It’s not so much a reinvention but a fresh start where I’m adding to my game.”
