Undefeated boxing prospect Joe Joyce (7-0, 7 KO) made quick work of heavyweight veteran Joe Hanks (23-3, 15 KO) to kick off tonight’s (Sat., Dec. 1, 2018) “Wilder vs. Fury” pay-per-view (PPV) main card from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., as “Juggernaut” secured an easy first-round knockout finish.

Joyce stunned Hanks with a furious right hand in the corner. Hanks tried to shake it off like it was nothing but his stumbling movement proved otherwise. Joyce took advantage and landed a final left hook that put Hanks on his back for good, as well as knocking his eyes sideways.

Check out the knockout finish above, and Joyce’s post-fight flips below:

With this performance, Joyce cashes on on his PPV main card bid and proves the oddsmakers right after coming in as a -10000 favorite. Fight fans can only hope that the first-round knockout finish was a sign of exciting things to come, as we still have Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury later tonight.
