Joyce won well but don't think he's anywhere near elite at that weight.

Has a granite chin, be interesting to see how he goes. Thinks he gives anyone of the top 3 a serious fight

Donovan lucky to get the win in Belfast tonight

Not sure he’s Championship level would have him 5th behind the big boys.

Looking forward to him taking on one of the big guns though. Hard to believe he was fighting someone 7 years his junior and was the one setting the pace of the fight. Parker is a certain level but is no dozer and has never been knocked out I hope Joyce can step up.

It was a very entertaining fight. The French lad was clearly the harder hitter, was never in trouble and always seemed to finish rounds well but Donovan got through an awful lot of work and probably landed more.

There was a young local lad who got robbed in the first televised  fight, so maybe that was the marker ‘no hometown decisions here’ that gave the bit of leeway for the big fight 😉

The ring announcer was absolutely useless. Had no idea how to announce results. It was as if he’d never seen a boxing event before.
