Heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce (1-0, 1 KOs) looked impressive in his pro debut in battering and stopping war horse Ian Lewison (12-4, 8 KOs) in the 8th round of a scheduled 10 round fight at the Indigo at The O2 Arena in London, England.

The 6’6” Joyce hurt the exhausted and flabby looking Lewison with a left to the head in round 8. Joyce then followed up with a series up heavy power shots that led to Lewison’s corner throwing in the towel to have the fight stopped. The official time of the stoppage came at 2:35 of round 8.

The 2016 Olympic super heavyweight Silver medalist Joyce had Lewison hurt in round 4 when he nailed him with a big left to the head. Lewison’s right eye was hurt from the shot, and he looked like he was unable to defend himself properly.

Showing no real urgency to finish the job, Joyce took his time and battered Lewison for the remainder of the 4th round. Lewison was stumbling around under the big shots that Joyce was hammering him with. To Lewison’s credit, he made it out of the 4th, but only because Joyce didn’t try to press the issue. Joyce looked like he wanted to keep Lewison in the fight a little longer, so he didn’t really go after him the way he could have.
