    Joe Joyce wins the WBO 'interim' heavyweight title

    Joyce, who turned 37 on Monday is an infamously slow starter, was not at the races early again in Manchester.

    The New Zealander was whacking away at the Londoner’s ribs as much as he could but Joyce has freakish resilience.

    Joyce raced out for the sixth and smashed a right hand straight onto Parker’s broken nose.

    Joyce was still getting punched back but he was overpowering and exhausting Parker in every clinch and slashing away at his head and body.

    It was all action, thrilling stuff but only Joyce looked capable of scoring the late stoppage thanks to his super-human chin.

    Serrano is looking comfortable at the end of this one, and tries to bring the uppercut through.
